It was refreshing to watch the Celtics manhandle a bad team.
While the lead was just 8 points at half, I was 99% sure the Kings weren't going to hang around. And that became obvious with the 33-18 3rd quarter.
Paul Pierce (25 points, 10-14 FG, 6 rebounds, 4 steals in 25 minutes) played aggressive from the start. He repeatedly attacked the rim for buckets.
We haven't seen much of Semih Erden, but he logged a team high 33 minutes and delivered 10 points and 8 rebounds.
The bench was superb. Nate Robinson with 16 points, Marquis and Von Wafer had 12 each. Von continues to look more comfortable with each passing game.
Rajon Rondo had 10 points, 13 assists. His coast-to-coast scoop shot to beat the halftime buzzer was unbelievable.
The Kings didn't contest much tonight. The Celtics shot 52% FG, 60% 3 FG with 29 assists.
