If you are a Lakers, Heat, or Cavs fan, you might as well stop reading this right now. There is no way it could possibly make sense to you. The Celtics work as a team, and what could represent that more than last nights game where a total of 7 players scored 10 or more points.
Points vs. Jazz
Ray Allen - 15
Rajon Rondo- 14
Kendrick Perkins - 10
Paul Pierce - 13
Kevin Garnett - 18
Rasheed Wallace - 12
Marquis Daniels - 10
When we distribute the ball like that, we are untouchable. With players scoring like that, you would like to double some of them. The problem with that is if they double one, the next is open. Opponents are then forced to play one on one, and in return have all star caliber players expose the defenders all game.
See, with our team it is a very rare occasion someone scores above 30 points. Infact, at no point in this season has any player on the Celtics scored 30+ points. Don't get me wrong, we do have the time when Pierce, or Ray, or Eddie decide to go off and shoot lights out. At that point, we may become one dimensional. However, when a guy can't miss, there is nothing wrong with it. There is somethign wrong with a player who night in night out is delusional thinking they are on fire when they arent. Getting any pictures in your head?
We have a team that isn't worried about this. If you want an example, just look at the consecutive passes made on one possession last night, to get the best look. 2 or 3 decent looks were open, but every player who touched the ball on the possession passed up their selfishness and desire to score more points, for the sake of the team. It is doing no one any good putting up an average look, when an awesome look is but a few more passes away. The Celtics and their lack of greed is what will get this team past other elite teams in this league.
