Boston Celtics Throw Away Big Lead & Rajon Rondo Triple Double to Toronto Raptors -- Garden Report Post Game Show

It was a magical start that was too good to be true, as the Celtics narrowly fell to Kyle Lowry and the Raptors Wednesday night. The Garden Report was in full force to break down the turnover-filled collapse.

BOSTON -- Usually the word quadruple is associated in NBA circles with the ever-elusive quadruple-double. But on the last warm day of 2014, the Celtics nearly quadrupled the Raptors' turnover count at 27 to 7. Despite Rajon Rondo's triple-double, the Celtics couldn't get a handle of the offense after the first quarter. Kyle Lowry stepped up huge for the Raps with 35 points on 12-for-17 shooting while DeMar DeRozan also chipped in 23 points.

Jeff Green scored 20 on 9-for-16 shooting, while Sullynyk both put up double-doubles. Although the Celtics had a remarkable +31 rebounding differential, it couldn't overcome the horrendous amount of turnovers.
