Brandon Bass left Cleveland a member of the 1,500 rebound club. Bass entered Tuesday’s game against the Cavaliers five rebounds shy of 1,500 rebounds for his career. Bass ended the night with six rebounds (1 off, 5 def) and helped the Celtics walk away with a narrow victory.
The sixth-year vet is having his finest season yet posting 11.9 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, both career highs.
Bass has played some solid minutes over the course of the season seamlessly transitioning between the bench and starting lineup. With a team with aging/brittle forwards, having a versatile player like Bass is paying tremendous dividends.
Bass was acquired by trade with Orlando in return for Glen Davis and Von Wafer in December.
