What a game. So much to discuss… The Celtics beat the Jazz, 98-93, thanks to a mammoth effort from their bench. Led by Jeff Green (16 points) and Leandro Barbosa (16 points), the Celtics second unit pumped out 47 points. The highlight of the night was Green’s monster dunk in the face of Al Jefferson. Go ahead and watch the video, repeatedly. The mild mannered Green was also T’d up for taunting. It was a beautiful sight. Barbosa played the entire 4th quarter because Rajon Rondo (6 points, 10 assists) turned his ankle (video here) in the 3rd quarter. He limped into the locker room, but returned to the bench. According to WEEI’s Mike Petraglia, Rondo walked through the locker room after the game without tape or swelling on his ankle. He’s day-to-day, according to Celtics PR. The Jazz absolutely demolished the Celtics on the boards (48-33). Utah had 19 offensive rebounds. They nearly got double-doubles from all three of their studs: Paul Milsap (20 pts, 12 rebounds), Jefferson (13 pts, 14 reb)
