With last night's 6-7 outing, Michael Finley is shooting a blistering64% since joining the Boston Celtics. If you throw out his Cleveland outing as an aberration, Finley's shooting percentage improves to better than 76%. He's shooting 54% from range, or 66% excluding the Cleveland game.

The Celtics don't have a long history of making mid- to late-season acquisitions who adjust quickly. Ray Williams and Artis Gilmore never really adjusted. Ed Pinckney and Joe Kleinie earned Cs. Sam Cassell and Derek Smith probably deserved a B-. Jim Paxson, Tony Delk, and Rodney Rogers probably earned a B+ in their first seasons.

Right now I'm gonna give #40 a B. If he can replicate his hot shooting in a game that matters, I'll revisit his GPA at that time.
