This game was pretty sloppy in the first half. The Kings took advantage of C's turnovers getting fastbreak buckets. But the Celtics, behind some great defense and execution, settled-in nicely for the last 2 quarters. Ray Allen continued his phenomenal season with a game-high 22 points, and 4 three-pointers. He is now 8 away from matching Reggie Miller's all-time record. Paul Pierce dropped in 15, including the back breaker (video from Jose3030 below) late, Ticket had 12 points & 7 boards and Baby was again solid off the bench with 14 points and 4 rebounds. Nate Robinson's defense and hustle were key late in the game. He struggled with his shooting, but his 4 steals were huge.
Celts now will attempt to get back to Boston in the midst of some serious snow to enjoy 2 days off. They are back at it on Friday vs the Mavs. Tip-off at the Garden will be at 8pm.
