The final score of this one, 109-97, is slightly misleading, as the Celtics basically had this one in the bag at halftime.
- Paul Pierce picked up two quick fouls in the first quarter, but came back in a rather ferocious fashion, scoring 29 points in the second and third quarters (24 minutes total).
- 12 rebounds for Kendrick Perkins and 12 assists for Rajon Rondo.
- C's hit the glass hard as a team - 45 boards total.
- Kevin Garnett chipped in 22 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists. He continues to look good from a physical standpoint. Nice to see him and his fellow starters get some rest in the fourth quarter.
- Old friend Bill Walker scored 8 points on 4-8 shooting. Still wishing Billy nothing but the best.
- Tough shooting night for Michael Finley (1-9 from the field), but he dished out five assists to make up for it.
- Three straight home wins for the Celtics against subpar teams...But they've certainly taken care of business against them.
