No KG, no Paul Pierce, no Rajon Rondo… no problem. The Celtics beat the Toronto Raptors 103-96 tonight, ending their three game losing streak and Toronto's five game winning streak.
Ray Allen lead the scoring with 23 points, one of 6 Celtics in double figures.
Tony Allen had a fantastic game – 14 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds. He attacked the basket all night and his 9 free throw attempts were a game high.
Rasheed Wallace (16 points, 6 rebounds) and Perk (14 points, 10 rebounds) played extremely well in the paint. 'Sheed and Turkoglu were hit with technical fouls after they got tangled up under the boards in the 2nd quarter. Off the bench, Glen Davis (15 points) and Eddie House (12 points) fueled the second unit.

The Raptors made a run in the 4th quarter, but they couldn't get any stops. The Celtics kept attacking and scoring.
Chris Bosh had the quietest 25 points and 9 rebounds I've ever seen. I'm just not impressed with this guy as a leader.
J.R. Giddens had two points in 20 minutes. I was impressed with his defensive energy, but he was too hesitant on offense. Lester Hudson had 5 points in 12 solid minutes.
