*Happy 30th birthday to Leandro Barbosa. What a fantastic Twitter handle he has: @TheBlur_Barbosa. He won the Sixth Man of the Year Award for the 2006-07 season as a member of the Phoenix Suns. Barbosa is now providing some much-needed bench scoring for the Celtics in 2012-13.
–On Sunday, Barbosa scored in double-digits for the 4th time this season.
–Before the Orlando game, the last time Barbosa had scored at least 10 points was the Brooklyn game on November 15.
–The Celtics have won the last 2 games in which Barbosa has come off the bench to score double-digit points.
