Josh Howard leads Celtics over Jazz

Josh Howard recently played for the Utah Jazz before being acquired by Boston. He provides a spark off the bench and fills in for Boston's big men when they go cold. Tonight? He demolished his former team, scoring a career high 62 points.

With only 12 games remaining in the regular season, Boston put "beating Miami for #1 seed" on the back burner and rested their stars tonight, who saw no playing time. The reserve unit played the entire game, consisting of: Fab Melo (C), Lou Amundson (PF), Josh Howard (SF), Carlos Delfino (SG) and Avery Bradley (PG).

Utah's stars, on the other hand, were involved, meaning Mo Williams, Gordon Hayward, ex-Celtics Jeff Green and Brandon Bass, and Al Jefferson. However, what they didn't expect was to be outplayed by Boston's reserve unit and be emphatically destroyed by Josh Howard.

Boston broke out to an early lead, but Utah stayed in the game, only to lose to Howard's scoring fury in the final minutes. Mo Williams nailed a 3 late to trim a 7 point deficit, but Boston's victory had already been cemented due to Howard's freakish explosion. His huge scoring total clobbers a previous season high of 37 points.
