Riding the momentum from Friday night’s win in Minnesota, Garnett’s first trip back since his trade to the Celtics, Boston dropped 118 points on the Toronto Raptors today for their 13th win of the year. In Friday night’s win at the Timberwolves, Kevin Garnett led the Celtics with 17 points en route to a 95-78 win.
It was Ray Allen dominating the Raptors on Sunday, scoring 21 points for the team high. Scoring 15 points each were Kevin Garnett, Tony Allen, and Rajon Rondo. Perkins added 12 points and 8 rebounds and Paul Pierce had 11 points as the Celtics made sure they got their baskets today.
The win was the fifth straight for the Boston Celtics who have been cruising lately. They’ve overcome some tough opponents and early deficits to maintain their poise. As the defending champions they are no doubt wearing a target on their backs. The Celtics will get two days to rest before hosting the Golden State Warriors on 11/26. On Friday the Celtics will host the Philadelphia 76ers as part of a double header of hockey and basketball at the TD Banknorth Garden. Celtics tickets are available for both of these games now.
