Celtics Handle Raptors

New, comments

It took a little while, but the Celtics pulled away late, and defeated a Chris Bosh-less and partly Hedo Turkoglu-less Raptors squad, 115-104. 

  • Another nice outing from Ray Allen. 18 points, with 10 of those coming in the fourth quarter. 
  • Speaking of fourth quarter scoring, Michael Finley buried everything in the final frame. 11 of his 14 came in the fourth. 
  • 19 points for Kevin Garnett, but only one rebound. C's out-rebounded the Raptors 36-32. 
  • Paul Pierce put in 20 points through three quarters, but Finley actually stole his minutes in the fourth thanks to his hot shooting. 
  • Rondo scored 16 of his 21 in the second half on a collection of aggressive drives to the hoop.
  • 9 rebounds for Kendrick Perkins, bringing his average up to nine boards per game over his last three games. 
Overall it was a better outing than last night's tough loss in New York. C's are back in action on Friday at 7:30pm when they take on the Washington Wizards at home.
