Terrence Williams and Jason Terry each scored 14 points off the bench for the short-handed Celtics, while Jordan Crawford (also a reserve) had 11 in a loss to the Timberwolves on Monday.
T-Will's 14 points were a season high, and he added six boards, five assists and two 3-pointers on 6-of-10 shooting in 22 minutes, while Terry added 14 points, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes off the bench. Crawford had 11 points, six boards, five assists and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes off the pine, while starter Courtney Lee hit 3-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for just seven points. Even with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce out, the Celtics guards are going to be hit or miss, although Williams appears to be heating up for the short-handed Celtics. Despite tonight's performance, we'd still be leery about starting any of these players going forward.
