It was just a small moment, but symbolic of the toughness Tom Thibodeau’s club has shown through 50 games. Thibodeau admitted before the game he didn’t know much about Pelle, who has played for the 76ers, Kings and Nets. “Our scouts really liked him,’’ he said. Thibodeau now knows why. He likes defensively mean centers who smile at dislocated fingers. “Pretty remarkable,’’ Thibodeau said. “The guy hasn’t gone through any practices. He was ready to go. It looked ugly. You appreciated he wanted to stay in. That’s why we brought him in — the rim protection. It said a lot about him. Obviously pleased the way he played in that short stint there.’’
