The C's stormed out to a huge first quarter lead but they pissed that away and spent the next next two-and-a-half quarters in a dog-fight with the Nets. Then the fourth quarter came along. The C's promptly demolished the Nets 24-10 in the quarter and won this thing 94-80.
Paul Pierce went off in the first quarter as if he was trying to shut up those who said he should be rested. He finished with 31 points on 10-18 shooting. KG had a double-double with 14 and 10.
This was expectedly un-pretty. The C's shot 43% NJ shot just under 39%.
Not going to go much more into it. The C's go into the break as one of the three 40-win teams in the league. With all this team has faced, that's really damn good.
Meanwhile, I absolutely MUST call out noted Lakers troll "PPSucks" who yesterday left a comment saying "you scrubs lost to the Cavs".
Well.. tonight the Lakers lost to the Cavs. Suck on that, trolls.
After the jump… Pierce makes his case for the highlight of the first half
