Just what the Doctor Ordered
After calling his team out for being "soft" on Wednesday night, the Celtics came out strong on Friday night against Portland without their starting point guard. Courtney Lee got the start in place of Rajon Rondo, and put forward his best performance of the season. Jeff Green and Jason Terry also played key roles in Boston's 96-78 victory. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce combine for only 22 points, and yet the Celtics were still in control throughout the entire game. Jeff Green led the way with 19 points and 4 steals in only 23 minutes on the floor, Jason Terry finished right behind with 17 points. Most importantly the team was able to pick up a victory without their best player, while playing Garnett and Pierce in an even more limited role than they have been in lately.
