Give the Thunder credit. They hung with the Celtics for 2+ quarters and even held an 8 point lead (64-56) midway through the 3rd. But then Paul Pierce and Eddie House got hot. Real hot. Alexis and Nikki hot.

Paul scored 20 of his 27 and Eddie got 14 of his 16 in the second half.

Big Baby (19 pts, 10 reb) needed 10 stitches to close a cut on his forehead courtesy of a Kevin Durant elbow.

Rajon Rondo had 12 assists in 26 minutes. He had two spectacular plays in the 2nd quarter: he went behind-the-back dribble to behind-the-back pass to Moore for a dunk and followed that up with a drive and one handed jam (see above video).

Mikki Moore (12 pts, 11 reb and the Tommy Award winner) had his best game as a Celtic. The Thunder decided to leave him open and he made them pay with jumpers and dunks. Stephon Marbury had 7 assists.

After the jump, video of Rondo's pass and a pic of Perk's block on Durant (which got my vote).

    BIG M’Fin Baby is playing his heart out even with 10 stitches on his forehead. Recently BBD is really coming to his own. Love watching him play!

    Loved the comment that BBD had a triple double: 19 points, 10 rebounds, 10 stitches. Ha ha.
    Ray and Rondo got some down time. Mikki looked much better. Steph had energy and aggression like he’s in game shape and with that, what I was hoping for and expecting started to show. One game, but very encouraging.
