The team that is always in rebuilding mode stopped by the TD Garden to play the Boston Celtics.
The Celtics were getting scoring from all over the place. Avery Bradley had 26 points and 9 rebounds. This really has been a great season for Bradley. Bradley has been known as a defensive stopper but he has really stepped up his offensive skills this season. If he keeps up this play he will have a career high in points per game with 17.8. Also, Isaiah Thomas once again kept up his tremendous play. Thomas had 24 points. Finally, Al Horford had a great game with 19 points and 12 rebounds. Horford was also an outstanding 4-7 from 3 point land. He hit a late three that helped the Celtics secure the win. “Once I came back in the game (in the fourth quarter), I got a look early and it felt really good,” Horford said. “I was just kind of in a zone there. Guys kept finding me and I kept knocking them down.” Also, this was the first game since the Jae Crowder twitter fiasco and the Celtics greeted him with cheers. “I’ve never been through a situation like that,” Crowder said. “I didn’t anticipate nothing. I didn’t think about nothing. But I’m ready to put it behind us.”
Next up for the Celtics is the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night.
