Hung around..

Without Rondo and KG in the lineup, the Celts still managed to hang around all day, but eventually fell 86-79 to the Magic. Ray Allen led the C's with 32 and hit some clutch shots in the 4th. But a controversial call against Leon Powe with around 2 minutes left in the game led to 2 Rashard Lewis free-throws that put this one out of reach for good. They were down by 22 at one point, and battled back to as close as 3 in the 4th, but couldn't capitalize on a few stops they made. To compound things, the injury bug bit again as Glen Davis was helped to the locker room in the 1st half with what the C's called a "sprained ankle." Rajon Rondo was held out of the starting lineup as well with an ankle injury. Comcast SportsNet said before the game that KG was still at least 1 week away from a return. Other notables from today's game: Celtics had 17 turnovers, Stephon Marbury had 4 points, 3 turnovers and 0 assists in his first start as a Celtic and Dwight Howard led Orlando with 18 points and 5 blocks-a couple of them Sportscenter worthy. C's are now off until Wednesday when they meet the Heat in Miami at American Airlines arena...
