The Boston Celtics stopped their miserable nine game loosing streak at home Wed night against Toronto. For Boston, the win over the East leading Raptors was their 11th in a row against their Canadian rivals. Ironically the win came just hours after the C's announced another big trade, sending their most dependable scorer, Jamal Crawford out of town. Boston also returned Rajon Rondo to the active list as well yesterday. In fact there was no shortage of headlines at the Garden last night.
Celtics made a three team trade Wednesday, sending Jamal Crawford and MarShon Brooks to Golden State. The Warriors sent Toney Douglas to the Heat. In return Miami sent Joel Anthony to Boston along with a conditional first round pick next year and a 2016 second round pick. Anthony was a salary dump for Miami, for Boston the big man could see a significant amount of court time.
