This'll be quick:
Ray Allen was "Sugar Ray"… hitting on 9-12 shots from the field, 3-5 from 3, and 4-4 from the line for a 25 point night. The beauty of his night was 6-7 from inside 3… most from mid-range and in… including a clutch dunk in OT off a feed from Paul Pierce.
Pierce, by the way, had 10 pts, 7 reb and 5 ast on an off night. KG was off too… shooting 7-17. So was Big Baby (4-10) for that matter. But the key thing to remember here is the C's won on a night where Pierce, KG and Baby shot a combined 15-41.
The C's still had 19 turnovers and they got out-rebounded (43-31) in yet another all-too-typical Celtics stat sheet. Part of the issue was Jermaine O'Neal played 19 minutes with zero rebounds. Oh, and Rondo had 11 assists tonight.
I think its clear that Perk is our starting center when he gets back.
By the way: Miami lost tonight. Just wanted to mention that.
