Celtics Guard, Rajon Rondo scored 35 points last night in the loss against Detroit. The Celtics start at five game road trip tonight at Chicago.
Last night the C’s played the Raptor’s and ended there five game losing streak winning 96-73.
Late in the third quarter Rajon Rondo went up for a lay up and was pushed. He fell with all of his weight on his left wrist but should be okay. He is day-to-day with a sore wrist.
After starting 0-3, the Celtics have won 3 of there last 4. The Celtics will look to get a win Wednesday against the Mavericks.
The Celtics only have two preseason games to find out what they have on there roster. Even with four rookies and one two-yearman on the court for the majority of the fourth quarter, the Celtics were able to come outwith76-75 victory against the Toronto Raptors. Rookie, Greg Stiemsma, tipped the ball in with 12.6 seconds which later proved to be the game winner. Leading the Celtics were: Ray Allen with 12 points while Marquis Daniels added 11. Rajon Rondo had 8 assists and Kevin Garnett pulled down 7 rebounds. The Celtics have there final preseason game Wednesday night at the TD garden.
After Celtics forward Jeff Green failed his physical early last week, his health was a concern. The doctors thought that he was just stressed but come to find out he has an aortic aneurism. Green will under go surgery in January. Keep Jeff and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Celtics forward, Jeff Green has not been practicing because of the results of his stress test. After being traded from Oklahoma to the Celtics, Coach Doc Rivers sees why he is stressed. In order for the Celtics to be successful this season they are going to need Jeff Green to be healthy.
Rajon Rondo (ankle) and Paul Pierce (foot) didn’t practice yesterday but are expected to back within the next few days.
Earlier this week Delonte West got traded from the Celtics to the Mavericks. They signed him to a 1 year, 1.1 million dollar contract. I personally don’t like this move, I think the Celtics should of signed West.
The Celtics were pushing hard to sign 31 year old two time all-star but they fell short. Late last night the Indiana Pacers signed West to a two year 20 million dollar contract.
You can’t be hurt by adding Keyon Dooling (Pictured below), if nothing on the court, he will be a great attitude in the locker room.
Another move the celtics made was to add Chris Wilcox. ( Pictured below) Many sources said this was the best move they have made this year. He will be physical and pull down tough rebounds.
