Rasheed: We had guys step up

Posted By Mike Petraglia On January 3, 2010 @ 3:01 am In General | 1 Comment

Rasheed Wallace has been around the NBA long enough to know not to get discouraged even when times look most bleak.

Another valuable lesson was taught Saturday night and it was Wallace and the Celtics schooling the Toronto Raptors, making the visitors North of the border look woefully unprepared for the woefully undermanned Celtics. Even without Paul Pierce [right knee], Kevin Garnett [right knee] and Rajon Rondo [left hamstring], the Celtics led virtually from the beginning of the game.

Here’s a sample of what Wallace and Celtics coach Doc Rivers had to say after they snapped a three-game skid with a 103-96 win over the Raptors.

Doc Rivers said his team had the right attitude on Saturday after dropping three straight [3].

Rivers said Wallace was huge in picking up the slack of the three missing starters [4].

Rivers said his reserves kept it simple, providing the key to victory [5].

Rasheed Wallace said they had guys step up on Saturday [6].
