Welcome home Delonte
Delonte West is that crazy relative we all have, granted with a couple more gun charges and rumors of banging LeBron's mom on his plate.
He's quirky, he's clinically insane, he has a ridiculous voice but deep down he seems like a misunderstood guy that truly loves basketball and being around his teammates (not named Von Wafer). Not to get all misty eyed on you but it's great to see him back with the Boston Celtics, the team he began his checkered NBA career with.
Without West's return last night after a 10-game suspension, last night's game lacked a subplot other than the fact that the Celtics are really good and the Wizards (especially without rookie point guard John Wall) are still hopeless.
The Celtics (9-2) won 114-83 at the TD Garden and it was all about West (12 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists), who rightfully got a standing ovation when he first entered the game as a substitution.
Paul Pierce led Boston with 23 points, Kevin Garnett scored 18 points with seven rebounds, Rajon Rondo had 12 points and 13 assists, Shaq notched 13 points and six rebounds while Ray Allen added 11 points.
Semih Erden scored nine points off the bench for the Celts as he continues to acclimate himself to the NBA and Glen Davis had eight rebounds.
Washington (3-7) are coached by Flip Saunders and all you can say about that is how does that bozo have a job in the NBA?
Nick Young scored 20 points off the bench to lead the Wizards, Al Thornton added 15 points while Kirk Hinrich and Andray Blatche checked in with 10 points apiece. For Wall (out with a foot injury), there would be no dougieing on this night although he looked on point with a fly suit.
Things will be much more exciting and competitive tomorrow night as the Oklahoma City Thunder and Kevin Durant come to town for a rematch after last week's loss at home that kicked off the Celtics' road trip.
