Tonight, the Celtics woke up from their funk as they beat up the Magic, 120-88. Everybody who played in this one was great. Tonight was a great night to be a Celtic. Now they're just one win shy of a winning season. I'm confident they will get it.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the dominant performance of Courtney Lee. Lee led the Celtics tonight with 20 points on 7/10 shooting. He also made all three of his three-point shots. We haven't seen a lot of these games from him this year, so this one was nice. Thanks for the effort.
Other guys who had good games were Jeff Green, who had 17, and Jordan Crawford, who had 16. Green was no surprise, as he's always good. But Crawford's recent play has definitely been unexpected. In order for this team to have success in the playoffs, they're gonna need Crawford to show up every night. He's slowly becoming this team's next Paul Pierce.
