Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley is one of the more promising young players in the NBA. The third-year guard out of Texas is already an excellent defender and this season, he is averaging 12.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game to go along with his 1.2 steals per game.
Bradley is also a very good athlete and apparently has great court awareness. During the Celtics’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks, the Celtics air balled a shot, but Bradley jumped at the ball, caught it in mid air while falling out of bounds and got the ball over the back of the backboard for a Celtics’ bucket. Just a fantastic play all around.
Bradley’s Celtics currently have a nine-point lead on the Bucks late in the fourth quarter. In the game, Bradley has 13 points on five-of-10 shooting from the field with three rebounds. Veteran guard Jordan Crawford leads all scorers with 23 points. O.J. Mayo has 17 points to lead the Bucks, who are in danger of falling to 3-14 on the season. A win would push the Celtics’ record to 8-12.
