Rookie Kris Joseph hungry for any chance he can get
Early last week, with the Celtics' preseason schedule winding down, rookie Kris Joseph had only two things on his mind: Staying ready and staying aggressive. Though his opportunities for lengthy minutes were few and far between to that point, Joseph was hoping that more chances would come his way, and if they did, he couldn't let them pass him by.
Flash forward to Thursday's 115-85 exhibition victory over the Brooklyn Nets, and sure enough, the minutes were available for Joseph, and he was keen on taking advantage of them. Playing the entirety of Boston's runaway fourth quarter, Joseph scored 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting and added five rebounds, exhibiting the aggressiveness he expected out of himself and his coaches wanted to see.
