Not sure why this one was close for as long as it was, but some hot shooting by Eddie and Paul (along with some typical Celtic defense) helped Boston pull away in the final quarter. Some additional points:
- Nice start by Mikki Moore who had 12 points by halftime. Then he didn't score for the rest of the game. He did get his quota of 5 fouls though.
- It appeared that Durant hit Big Baby with an elbow, creating a gash that required 10 stitches. Which only proves that KD's elbows are as sharp as they look.
- Speaking of Baby, he had yet another great night. 19 points and 10 boards.
- Mike Gorman noted that Rondo now has the 5th most single season assists in franchise history with a chance to move up with a few weeks of games left.
- In case you missed it, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook can play.
- Marbury showed up and contributed 7 assists.
- Nice to see a garbage time dunk for Bill Walker.
