The Celtics had it clicking on all cylinders last night both offensively and defensively against a discouraged 76ers team at home. The Celtics won 107-91 and when they are engaged like last night’s game, they can be legit contenders.
KG put in 27 points and 13 rebounds with 4 dimes. Rondo had 23 points and 14 assists. Pierce, playing with that messed up everything, had 24 points and 12 rebounds. The Boston defense was suffocating, holding the 76ers to a 16 point second quarter and a 17 point third quarter.
In case you missed some of the action here are some of last night’s top green moments:
This is Grand Theft Rondo with a sweet pass to The Truth for a beautiful fast break bucket
This clip is all about KG’s attention to detail, despite the heavy set fellow trying to distract him. Not for the queasy readers
Paul was doing everything he could to score last night after two sub par playoff games. Here we see a hobbled Pierce get up for two posterizing dunks in the first half!
