The Houston Rockets registered 10 blocks during Tuesday's dismantling of the Boston Celtics, including a whopping seven swats in a dominant first quarter. With that in mind, here's a look at the Celtics players having their shot blocked most often this season (with percentage of blocked shots in parentheses)

11: Avery Bradley (6.8 percent)
9: Jeff Green (6.6)
8: Brandon Bass (6.5)
7: Gerald Wallace (15.6)
6: Kelly Olynyk (6.3), Vitor Faverani (9.5)
5: Jared Sullinger (5.3)
3: Courtney Lee (3.7)
2: Jordan Crawford (1.7), Phil Pressey (5.3)
1: Keith Bogans (100), MarShon Brooks (7.7)
0: Kris Humphries (0)
Team total: 61

Gerald Wallace's blocked percentage leaps off the page given his limited number of attempts. On the flip side, undersized Jared Sullinger has done a nice job of avoiding swats around the basket. The Celtics' overall number of shots blocked might sound high, but the team has actually blocked the same amount of shots. The Celtics' blocked shots leaders:

18: Faverani
13: Bass
6: Humphries, Sullinger
5: Green
4: Olynyk, Lee
2: Crawford, Bradley
1: Pressey
0: Wallace, Bogans, Brooks
Team total: 61
