13. 18, 10 & 12.

18 points, 10 rebounds & 12 assists.

13 straight wins for the Celtics, and a triple-double of 18, 10 & 12 for The Truth.

Without Rajon Rondo in the lineup, Paul Pierce became the "point forward" as Doc called him postgame,  and dished out 12 assists to help the Celtics beat the Pacers 99-88 at the Garden today. Shaquille O'Neal returned to the lineup and had 11 points & 5 rebounds in 21 minutes. Shaq scored early and often, but got into foul-trouble later in the game. Nate Robinson again was solid in the starting point-guard role, dropping in 18 points and playing with an unmatched hustle & energy all afternoon. Glen Davis was great off the bench, chipping-in 18 points and pulling down 6 rebounds. Marquis Daniels also continued to contribute, scoring 8 points to go along with 4 rebounds and 1 steal.

The Celtics are absolutely cruising right now, and as Paul Pierce said after the game, are not even playing their best basketball yet. Next up for the green; the Sixers come to town on Wednesday night. Tip-off at the Garden is at 7:30pm, and I'll be there. Check here and for my pics, video and more. Check   out John's recap of today's win on for more analysis and stats.
