The Boston Celtics won their third-straight game without Rajon Rondo on the floor. With a 97-84 trouncing of the Orlando Magic, Boston is back at .500. Their 23-23 record has them holding tight for the eight-seed in the Eastern Conference. The Magic fans seem fairly reserved to their fate as a cellar team in the East right now, and could definitely use some sort of pick-me-up.
1: 146 days until draft day.
2: Turk is shooting 4% from three this year. Four.....four....FOUR.
3: Pierce is 3 assists away from a triple-double... Huh?
Play of the Game:
Boston getting a lot of sympathy for their injuries: I liked him, but I’m glad that we got Nicholson over Sullinger. Mostly the same player, one has a back problem and the other doesn’t though
well at least we're pissing Doc Rivers off with this late run
