Celtics Player Review: Eddie House

Eddie House had a decent first year in Boston, coming into town to provide the role of the back-up point guard for Rajon Rondo for most of the season.

His quickness and ability to catch and shoot the ball were the strongest parts of Eddie’s game. He had the ability to get the ball up the court in a hurry, put up a shot when needed, and was dangerous from beyond the three-point line as well.

Regular Season

House was a big part of the Celtics’ success through the first half of the season and into the second half until Sam Cassell came around. Cassell took some of Eddie’s playing time, but did not fit into the playing style of the fast-paced Celtics, allowing Eddie to take over again late in the playoffs.

Eddie finished the year by appearing in 78 games and averaging 19.0 minutes off the bench in those games. He had decent stats off the bench as well, averaging 7.5 points and 1.9 assists per game.


In the playoffs, Eddie was not used nearly as much as he should have been due to Sam Cassell getting most of the playing time. Towards the end of the Cleveland series, Eddie began to see more minutes again. He appeared in 21 playoff games, but his numbers dipped down a bit from his regular season averages. Eddie only averaged 2.5 points 0.9 assists per game in the playoffs.

However, he had great numbers in the NBA Finals and was a big contributor to the Celtics huge comeback win in Game 4 against the Lakers. Eddie had 11 points in that game and hit key shots the bring the Celtics back into it.

Future Outlook

Eddie will be back again next year and will continue to play his role of the back-up point guard to Rondo. He might share time with Gabe Pruitt however, but can still help by giving Pruitt tips and tricks to help his development.
