FINAL SCORE: RAPS 86, CELTICS 74 SEASON RECORD: 9W-19L
This was a big win for the Raps last night but hey, all NBA attention was on Jeremy Lin last night...but nevertheless, here are your Pound the Rock Stars!
LINE: 17 pts (7-12), 14 ast, 4 reb
The Celtics were gassed, and Jose took advantage of that. Calderon helped spark the Raptors to a strong start, scoring 10 of this 17 points in the first half. He also dropped his second straight double digit assist game with fourteen assists and ZERO turnovers. On the defensive end for Jose, he took Rajon Rondo out of the mix as Rondo was held to just 2-10 shooting on the night.
POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE: 21 pts (7-13), 7-7 FT, 4 ast
Hey man.....does DeMar have that confidence back? Fifth straight double digit scoring performance, and he got to the free throw line seven times. Things just click for DeMar when he attacks the basket.
POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: AMIR JOHNSON
LINE: 12 pts (4-4), 12 reb, 1 stl, 2 blk
When Amir shows up (like every 5-6 games), he puts up numbers. And last night was one of those nights. No foul trouble (with just three fouls on the night) and the double double (12 pts/12 boards).
SHOUTOUTS TO THE CELTICS:
LINE: 12 pts (6-9), 8 reb, 2ast
It was a disappointing loss for the C's as there was still a hangover from their previous night's loss to the Lakers. So I guess, the best of a hungover Celtics team last night goes to KG with his 12 points.
