Celtics 108, Wizards 83
Sorry for the late posting but I was having issues with the blog application last night. Obviously, the score pretty much sums it up. The Wizards were blasted in every way imaginable by a C's team that was not happy after losing three of four on a recent road trip.
In two games against the C's, the Wiz have lost by 59 points. So much for that domination last season. Then again, all you had to do to understand the difference was look at the Wiz sideline where Gilbert Arenas, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson wore suits. Also, Andray Blatche rolled his ankle in the first half and did not return (I'll have an update on him later).
- The only good to come out of the game is that Javaris Crittenton finally got some extended run. I've been saying for a while and I'll keep saying it: this team has to find out what exacctly it has in its young players going into a huge summer.
Crittenton was energetic and just lookekd a lot more comfortable out there. I liked the way he pushed the ball in transition. He finished with five points, four assists, four rebounds and two turnovers in 21 minutes.
- Caron Butler, who started and played 32 minutes after missing three games with a sprained left ankle, said the ankle held up well and didn't think he'd have any ill effects today.
- Just an overall strange feeling being up here. Two years ago, the atmosphere at TD Banknorth Garden was dead and you couldn't find anyone around game time in green and white. It was all Red Sox and Pats gear. Now, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce jerseys for everyone and the atmosphere is electric. Guess Boston fans should thank Kevin McHale for that huh?
