Welcome back..

KG made his much-anticipated return to the Boston lineup tonight. He started off cold (obviously) but finished with a respectable 5/9 from the field with 10 pts and 4 boards in 15 minutes. More importantly, KG's mere presence got this team amped up tonight. These were the World Champion Boston Celtics-not the struggling C's we've seen of late. Ray Allen led the C's with 19, but it was really the D tonight. Perk was an absolute Beast down-low with 5 blocks, and the C's got some key stops when needed. Can't forget the biggest play of the game-a clutch jumper from in the corner by Glen Davis that sealed the deal with under a minute to play in the 4th. Baby scored 7 pts and grabbed 7 rebounds off the bench tonight. Also of note, only 4 turnovers tonight-that is HUGE against a team with a guy like Tony Parker who loves to get easy layups in transition. Speaking of Le' Parker, he choked down the stretch, missing 4 big free-throws in the final minutes. Great win for the Celts tonight. I honestly haven't felt this good about them in a while. Next up, the Memphis Grizzlies tomorrow night. Tip-off is 8pm from the Fed-Ex Forum. Goodnight Celtics fans...
