The Boston Celtics ended their win streak Friday by receiving their worst loss of the season to the Utah Jazz 110-92.
This loss could have been avoided had Doc Rivers new how to use his bench. Glen "Big Baby" Davis got way too many minuets once again and did nothing with them. Davis has his moments, but to leave him in there instead of having Leon Powe or Kendrick Perkins in is just ridiculous. Powe and Perk were having great games but they sat on the bench while Davis did nothing.
Leon was of course perfect as usual, going 3 for 3 from the field, 2 for 2 from the free throw line, giving him 8 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 assist, and 1 block all in just 13 minuets of play. Davis in 15 minuets scored 2 points, got 0 rebounds, 3 fouls, 2 turnovers and that's it. But in crunch time Davis got the minuets and Leon didn't. That's pathetic especially when we all know Powe is the real Mr. Clutch, he's never missed a game winning shot!
So again this was a frustrating game to watch but at least Leon did a great job when he was aloud to see the floor.
