First of all, Happy 24th Birthday to Perk! Perk was a factor in this game although he only scored 2 points, pulled down 4 rebounds and blocked 1 shot. Jermaine O'Neal was dominating in the first half with 19 points until Perk got in his face and rattled him to the point where he scored only 4 points the rest of the game.
Big Baby was the most effective big of the bench with only 1 point but 4 of the bench's 7 rebounds. Eddie House had 7 points. Tony Allen who came up big against the Piston didn't score.
Kevin Garnett had a KG-like game after struggling recently with 21 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 block. He also got into it with Jose Calderon which seemed to rattle the Raptors PG somewhat.
Rondo didn't dominate offensively with only 4 points, but defensively, he was terrific, holding Calderon to just 7 points.
Ray Allen had a solid night with 19 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal.
The Celtics were fairly lifeless through the first 3 quarters but then Paul Pierce put the team on his back and carried them to the victory with 22 points in the 4th quarter.
