The Celtics lead the Bulls by 11 at the half behind a strong 2nd quarter and 17 points by Paul Pierce. Avery Bradley started and Ray Allen came off the bench and everything seemed to go just fine. Of course it helps that Rose is out tonight. In other news, Rajon Rondo is still doing Rajon Rondo things which always brings a smile to my face. On the flipside, Joakim Noah is doing Joakim Noah things, which tends to have the opposite effect.
Personally I'm headed to bed, so you folks that don't have young kids or are simply better fans than me can let me know how it goes and use this post as your post-game thread. Enjoy!
The Magic (predictably) have already lost tonight and the Celtics have an opportunity to pick up a win with the Bulls' star out, so hopefully they can pull out the win.
