Brandon Bass hasn’t lost professionalism

NEW YORK — After he received a pass on a fast break, Brandon Bass had a split second to decide whether to drive to the basket like a bull toward Dwyane Wade, not his strength, or wait for help and give the offense a fresh possession.

Bass decided to hold up, and the Celtics later scored on that fourth-quarter possession against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night. Bass finished with 18 points in 29 minutes in the Celtics’ 101-96 victory at TD Garden.
