Celtics Sweep Heat

New, comments

The Celtics completed a successful regular season sweep of Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat with a 107-102 victory at the TD Garden tonight.

  • Rajon Rondo took the reins on offense, scoring 21 points, while dishing out 14 assists, grabbing six rebounds and swiping three steals. 
  • Celtics won the rebounding battle  tonight, 41-30. 
  • Kevin Garnett flirted with a triple-double, finishing with 14 points, six rebounds and nine assists. 
  • Tony Allen played some nice defense down the stretch on Dwyade Wade, limiting the chances of any heroics.
  • Eddie House had a nice game tonight: 14 points on 5-9 shooting and 2-4 from three-point nation. Doc Rivers had some nice offensive/defensive substitutions down the stretch with Eddie and TA. 
  • The Celtics shared the ball tonight, handing out 29 assists as a team. 
  • The turnover number (17) was still a little high, and the Celtics didn't do themselves any favors at the free throw line (20-31, 64.5 percent). However, nice seeing them clean up on the glass. 
  • Overall, it wasn't pretty at times, but it was nice seeing the Celtics close out a team down the stretch for a second straight game.
