The Mavs are also taking their favorite shots. Jeff Greeh hits, but it's a fallaway jumper from about 18 feet. Hero shots can't be relied upon to do the job. Finally, Jeff takes it strong to the hoop and shoots freebies as a reward.

Rondo's played 27 minutes, and I won't be shocked if he doesn't return in this one. Pressey in the backcourt. Marion hits a four-footer. What did I say about high-percentage shots?

Green not takes a wild shot rolling down the lane. No chance of that one going in. So, just to make things interesting, Jeff also commits an offensive foul.

That was a terrible fast break "orchestrated" by Phil. He was in the center of a 3-and-2 and he passed to Humphries on the right when there was a Mav between Humphries and the basket. So the Mav just stopped short and Humph juggled the ball harmlessly out of bounds.

That was a nice drive and finish by Kelly. He didn't rush it. He didn't shoot into traffic. Very nice.

With about 5 second to go in the quarter, Phil made a great coast-to-coast drive and, all alone one foot from the basket, threw a laser that almost broke the backboard. Keep your cool, man. Boy, this one is a distinct letdown from recent games, but they're also playing a better team. This is probably a much better indication of the Celts' real developmental level. Still, a couple of glimmers. That Wallace pass directly into a Mav's hands wasn't one of them. Now the Mavs are piling it on with a couple of alley-oops, and the Celtics are chucking blanks from the perimeter.

Nice inside pass from Phil to Gerald for rare layup.

Dirk's still in there with the Mavs leading by 20.  No fair.

Whoa, Rondo's back with nine minutes and change left.

And, right on cue, Dirk hits another three. That one actually had a hilt and sharp edges.

Come on, guys. You've got another game tomorrow. How about at least getting some momentum over the rest of this one? That was always one of Red's objectives. If a game was out of range, work on getting ready for the next game.

They are not missing, no playing catch up here. Either they play defense or they will lose by at least 30

Johnson grabs his own miss of a three, gets it back, and hits a three. The kid's got brass ones. Now Wallace drives in for an easy layup. C'mon guys, keep it going. Kris drives from the foul line and stuff it. Okay! They're trading hoops, but at least they're hitting some shots. Johnson is crashing in every offensive board action.

Nice lead pass from Rondo for a Sullinger fast-break bucket and one.

Johnson flashes underneath for a well-timed feed by Rondo and shoots two freebies.

Boy, the Mavs still have Dirk and Marion in there. They deserve a rest, but perhaps they're having too much fun.

Escellent ball movement. Four crisp passes to swing it at the perimeter. Now Johnson hits a three from the other corner.

Rondo to The Bull with plenty of room underneath.  Now Rondo hits a three.  I like what Brad's doing.  He's got them still fighting and working themselves out of a team slump.  Go Celtics! Down by 15 after the lead had been in the 20s. I know it's playground time for the Mavs, and they're hitting threes with regularity, but I'm trying to recognize Celtics glimmers when they occur. Swell, the snow has started in Boston.

Now a three by Jeff. Twelve-point game with two minutes left. Okay, 14-point game. Goaltending on a Green layup. Twelve points again.

Twelve point game with 1:28 to go. Almost certainly out of reach, but I admire their (what we used to call) gumption in coming back.

By the way, Johnson jade an outstanding block to stop the Mavs on their last possession. Now Johnson hits another three. 98-89. Crap. Calderon drives for an easy one, faking Rondo out of his jock. The Celts' defense has basically fallen apart (except for that Johnson block), but the rhythm of their offense seems much improved.

102-91 final. Disappointing, but with a definite uptick at the end. I'm announcing that I'm changing my last name to Johnson. Not my board name. My personal name, and that of my kids.

Hope this was enough chatter for you, BobH and that you're enjoying Tahoe. Nice posting with everyone.
