Who needs Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo? The Celtics have now won four straight games without their starting backcourt.
Paul Pierce was the hero. How's this for a balanced stat sheet? 28 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. The Truth had 17 in the 3rd quarter, asserting himself offensively as Indiana picked up their intensity.
Chris Wilcox (14 points, 6-8 FG, 6 rebounds) played his best game in green.
Another strong defensive performance from Bar Fight. The Celtics won the battle of the boards, 45-42. I was really impressed with the effort. They didn't look like a team that clawed it's way back from a 27 point deficit vs Orlando 24 hours ago.
Stat of the night: Indiana 1-19 (5%) from 3
