After seven straight games decided by six points or less, the Celtics appreciated a comfortable win on Saturday and they did it behind the shooting of Jason Terry and the passing of Rajon Rondo.
A. Sherrod Blakely discusses how Rajon Rondo picked apart the Toronto defense, en route to 20 assists. Before the game Doc Rivers said he would watch Rondo, who is dealing with an injury, to make sure he could move around. With 20 assists, it seems safe to say Rivers liked what he saw.
When Rondo wasn't slicing up the defense, it was Jason Terry knocking down big shots. When the Raptors went to a zone defense, Terry took over, exploding for 20 points.

First up, President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski talks about "winning the winter", and filling the leadership void left by David Ortiz.
Also, Dombrowski's two biggest acquisitions during his tenure with Boston , Chris Sale and David Price, discuss expectations for the rotation, and getting to know each other off the field.
The Celtics reportedly are "expected" to talk to the Mavericks about a deal for Andrew Bogut, according to scout.com, but negotiations would be "dependent on what bigger move Boston can make".
MORE TRADE TALK
Bogut, 32, is in the final year of his contract. The 7-foot center, while healthy, has played in only 26 games this year and is averaging just three points a game. But he's also averaging 8.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes, and rebounding has been one of the Celtics' big areas of weakness this year. The C's rank 27th in the league in reboundinh, and 26th in defensive rebounding.
According to scout.com, the Mavs would part with Bogut for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's first-round draft choices.
