Even though the Boston Celtics are on a rebuilding mode where the record isn’t the most important thing, wins like the one gotten today are surely useful.
With a solid production of their starters and a balanced scoring output, the Celtics basically dominated from start to finish and imposed their terms against the lowly Milwaukee Bucks on their route to a 108-100 win.
The Celtics played 10 guys tonight and out of those, six ended scoring in double-figures. Jordan Crawford led the offense once again with 25 points, Jeff Green added 18 and Avery Bradley finished with 15 points and also had a highlight play with a bucket from behind the glass when the shot clock was expiring.
The Celtics’ solid performance can be analyzed beyond the numbers. Courtney Lee seems very comfortable coming from the bench and even though guys like Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries haven’t produced as expected, they should improve their play once Rajon Rondo returns to the floor.
The Celtics shot almost 50 percent from the floor and had a great night from beyond the arc, netting 11 of their 24 three-point attempts. It needs to be said that the Bucks aren’t really a team that can be recognized by their defense but anytime the team can score consistently, good things are going to happen.
The win should’ve been by a bigger margin and the Celtics have a lot of things they need to fix. Luckily for them, the season is still young and winning builds confidence that they can use going forward in this long rebuilding year.
