Handing Out Boston Celtics Team Awards Through the Season's First Quarter

It's safe to say that the Celtics would be far worse off this season without KG.

The Celtics hit their first-quarter mark of the season this week, and in brief summation, it's been an up-and-down 20 games.

Boston stands at 11-9, tied with the sliding Brooklyn Nets for fourth in the Atlantic Division and sixth in the Eastern Conference. The C's have yet to win more than three in a row or lose more than two straight.

They have played very well at times and like garbage at others. Sometimes the defense looks like it's rounding into 2007-2011-style form. Other times it looks like the pre-Kevin Garnett years.

The offense is better all-round than it was last season, but it still ranks in the middle of the pack in terms of points per game—97.3, good for 14th in the league.

There's such a long way to go between now and playoff time that to read too much into this team's current state seems borderline foolish. Last season through 20 games, the Celts were 10-10, just a game off this season's pace, and they wound up one win away from the NBA Finals.

By the same token, though, we can still get a decent gauge as to who is doing what the best and who is not despite the relatively small sample size we've seen thus far.

So with that, here are some team wide awards for the Boston Celtics through the first quarter of the 2012-13 season.
