Presto! Celtics Keep On Winning, Work Magic Against Orlando: 97-84
Boy, I tell ya...if any more Celtics get hurt, they're liable to win the Championship!
By now, only the Celtics fans living under a satellite-jamming rock haven't heard that not only has the team lost the All-Star stylings of Rajon Rondo due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but they are now without the services of rookie extraordinaire Jared Sullinger thanks to a herniated disk that required surgery.
These season-ending injuries to key players have been accepted as devastating news by fan, foe and talking head alike, but all the Celtics have done is turn, smile at the cameras and politely flash the middle finger at the pundits who all-but-buried-them as they just keep on winning.
But, the big story was Jeff Green, who continued his recent assault on the aggress-o-meter scoring 17 points (including a couple of seriously emphatic dunks), 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, and 3 (3!!) blocks.
Next up? The Los Angeles Clippers and the chance to move one game ahead of .500.
