Kevin Garnett scored 20 points and the Boston Celtics won their sixth consecutive contest over the San Antonio Spurs 90-83 last night at the AT&T Center. The C’s are currently the most successful team on the road with an 8-1 away record this season. “Guys are locked in, it’s a great focus right now,” said Kendrick Perkins. “Guys came on this road trip to get wins.”
Boston claimed the early ten point advantage to end the first quarter. They came up with just 16 points in the fourth as the defense stepped up, holding San Antonio to 20 to solidify the victory. Rajon Rondo played floor general yesterday with 12 points, 12 assists and six rebounds. Ray Allen and Rasheed Wallace contributed with 12 and 13.
The Celtics are set to make their last stop for now against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday before hosting the Bucks next Tuesday. “That’s the make or break of the trip,” said Rasheed Wallace. “It’ll be a downer if we don’t go in there tomorrow and come out with a W.” Boston Celtics tickets are now available!
