C's head home 3-1..

Jesus Saves
Celtics finish the West coast trip with a 95-90 victory over the Kings. This win guarantees the C's will have the best record in the East heading into All-Star break-which means Doc will coach the East squad in this year's all-star game.

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.
