Let's give the Raptors credit. This was a game for about 5 minutes. The Celtics (20-2) extended their winning streak to 9 games with a 90-77 victory north of the border. The Pats/Jets game was closer. The C's used suffocating defense to maul the Raptors. Toronto shot just 39%.
"Their defense is very aggressive," Bosh said. "They are very long and athletic and the plays we usually make just weren't there. What we need to take from this game is to see how they play defense."
That's right young Jedi, learn from us. How about this balance on the offensive end? Pierce – 18 pts, Garnett – 16 pts, Rondo – 14 pts, House – 11 pts, and Tony Allen – 10 pts. Not bad for a team with 3 stars (only 2 played in this one) and a bunch of scrubs. Bring on the Pistons.
