Celtics Reign Supreme

Celtics pulled out a very impressive 90-78. The C's had control pretty much from the beginning. Althought the Pistons did tie it at 69 at one point in the 4th qtr.

Garnett started off very strong scoring 19 pts. in the first half alone. Garnett finished the game with 31 pts. and and 6 rebs. Pierce had a fairly strong showing and put up 15 pts. and 5 asts. Rondo also played very well tonight putting up 16 pts. and 5 asts. On the Detroit side of the ball, Both Billups and Wallace put up 23 pts.

With this win the C's win the season series 2-1 and now have a 4 game lead in the East over the Pistons. The C's now look like they are the team to beat in the Eastern Conference.

The Celtics in my opinion played a very good, up tempo game and seemed to play as if it was a play-off game. The crowd was into it and the energy in the arena felt like a championship game. If the C's continue to play like this, the Chase For 17 will be very successful.

With this big game behind them, they look ahead to their next opponents, the slowly fading Chicago Bulls. With the Bulls not in play-off contention, hopefully the C's don't slack off and take this game seriously. With the talent the Bulls have, they are no pushover team.

Tonights Celtics Player of the Game would have to be Kevin Garnett.
