The Boston Celtics haven't had much to gloat about as of late, but sophomore point guard Avery Bradley provided at least a brief smile to Boston faithful on Wednesday night.
Bradley, who has been forced into extra action recently due to Rajon Rondo's suspension, showed off his elite athleticism on a fast break against the Thunder in Oklahoma City. Bradley grabbed the rebound off a James Harden miss midway through the second quarter on Wednesday, taking the ball coast-to-coast before rising high and throwing down a monster slam over Thunder forward and fellow Texas Longhorn alum Kevin Durant.
The dunk incited roars from the home crowd in Oklahoma City, and offered the Celtics at least some form of solace in yet another blowout loss on this five-game road trip.
Boston heads into the All-Star break at 15-17 on the season with some serious questions to ponder about the team's future. Rondo, who was added to the All-Star game on Wednesday, will take back his starting job after the break but look for the high-flying Bradley to see some more minutes going forward.
