Rasheed and Rondo: Raptor Hunters

Rasheed Wallace scored 29 points and Rajon Rondo tallied his 3rd career regular season triple double as the Celtics beat the Raptors 114-107.

Rajon Rondo was brilliant yet again. His stat line – 22 points, 13 assists, 10 rebounds and 4 steals.

Wallace was 9-12 from the field, 5-7 from 3FG, with 7 rebounds.

The Raptors cut the lead to 108-104 with 1:28 left, but Kendrick Perkins (16 points, 4 blocks) corralled a missed Wallace three pointer, got fouled and made two free throws. A steal by Sheed and a jumper by Paul Pierce (16 points) iced the game.

The Celtics rushed out to a 10-0 lead and never looked back. They lead wire to wire.

Eddie House (11 points) was the only bench player to provide a spark. Glen Davis had 6 rebounds in 16 minutes.

Ray Allen was sporting a band-aid on his nose. Ray suffered a small cut when he was hit in the face by a ball vs Atlanta.

Chris Bosh lead all scorers with 31 points and 13 rebounds. Andrea Bargnani chipped in 23 points.

  • That sequence with about 1:25 left was great. Perk grabs the offensive board, gets fouled and ices the free-throws. Then the ‘Sheed steal and Pierce jumper. I also thought the C’s moved the ball very well today. Eddie House didn’t have a huge day, but he made progress. I really hope to see him become a bigger part of the 2nd unit. His 3-pt shooting off the bench will be crucial this season-especially if Baby or Quis goes down at all again.

    The Kid led the vets past the sculpture of Red made of nickel and lead into the arena where he led them again in points made and assists fed. His teammates later read a headline in bright red: Kid Leads Vets Past Red… under which Kid said: “I led them tonight, and will lead them again. I do it for Red and all who said I’d fall out of bed. Now that you’ve read this, read the rest, but rest assured, that I will not, until I’ve led us… to our next championship.”

  • Its crazy to me how people can hate on the C’s.. far and away the best basketball played in the NBA. Balance, teamwork, defensive effort, and some shit talking if you wanna get tough. Just good basketball man.
