The Celtics returned home and rolled the Nuggets 113-99.
Rajon Rondo had a triple double – 11 pts, 11 reb, and 15 assists. KG had 20 pts and 10 boards.
Things got dicey in the 3rd as Denver cut a 21 pt lead to 9. Because of Denver's explosiveness, I never felt confident.
Doc made the move to his starters earlier than usual in the 4th and it paid off. The Cs quickly pushed the lead up to 17.
Credit to Tony Allen. Pressed into duty because of foul trouble, TA responded with 13 pts, an emphatic dunk and tons of energy.
I'd love to recap the first half, but John and I spent a lot of time schmoozing in the T-Mobile suite and with ticket winners. Thanks again T-Mobile!
