The Boston Celtics started the night off slowly against the Houston Rockets, before coming alive in the final minute of the second quarter and blasting off with a big win, 94-74. The Houston Rockets had a 22-game winning streak coming into the night against the NBA’s best team, record wise.
Missing Ray Allen, the Celtics had several players step up for them. The big guns, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce combined for 44 points, while Leon Powe came off the bench and put in 21. The green also did a great job on the defensive side of the ball as well.
