The Celtics had a moral boost of a win yesterday over the Derick Rose-less Bulls. After losing two straight the Celtics came out guns blazing, Rajon Rondo in particular. The C’s point guard had 32 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds, including a never before seen ally oop pass to rookie JaJuan Johsnon. So if you didn’t see the 3:30 PM game yesterday because you were still trying to kick out the girl you invited over Saturday night in a cordial way, here’s what you missed:
As stated above, Rondo had 32 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds. Good for his 9th triple double of his career. If Derrick Rose was in the lineup, chances are Rondo wouldn’t have posted NBA Jam numbers. He did hit 10 of 13 free throws though, which is as shocking as Adele’s dress choice last night.
Known for his 2002 NCCA Championship with Maryland, Wilcox had 10 points and 9 rebounds in his first start of the year. Instead of being known for a college hero, now he is known for running the floor ahead of his opponents. Am I the only one that was amazed that he could still jam the way he did? The one-handed ally oop jam from Rondo was flawless.
JaJuan Johnson time
The rookie had 12 points, 4 rebounds, in a season high 33 minutes. The ally oop from Rondo in the fourth quarter was a hopeful look into the future as Johnson crammed home a two-handed cram job. If Johnson can put some weight on by next season, he could become a more athletic Al Jefferson.
