Celtics Tweets of Interest: Thanksgiving Blessings, Black Friday, and Big Win Over Thunder

The Boston Celtics entered Thanksgiving with many things to be thankful for, especially forwards Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox. Both players are coming off heart surgery that ended their seasons prematurely last year.

The Celtics lost two straight going into their game against the defending Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder at the TD Garden on Friday night. In those two losses, the Celtics defense struggled mightily against the Detroit Pistons and the San Antonio Spurs.

These Celtics battled and came away with a 108-100 victory over the Thunder. Paul Pierce led the team with 27 points. Rajon Rondo (16 dimes) extended his double-digit assist streak to 36 games, which is just one shy of  matching John Stockton in second place for consecutive games with 10+ assists. Magic Johnson is the leader with 46 games. The bench outscored the Thunder’s reserves, 35-13. The Celtics’ backups were led by former Thunder forward Green with 17 points.

Off the court, the Celtics players enjoyed the holiday as well as shopping on Black Friday.

 

Celtics forward Sullinger sent this picture of his Black Friday shopping item. He spent his time getting himself shoes so he can be able to get some lift on the court. Sullinger will need these shoes because he is undersized on the low post.
