Allen Iverson’s move to Detroit has helped the Pistons get past the Lakers and the Cavs but not their Eastern Conference rival, Boston Celtics. The Celtics ruined Iverson’s home debut with Detroit a couple of weeks ago. It was more of the same last night at the TD Banknorth Garden as the Celtics prevailed over Detroit 98-80. Iverson managed 16 points and 4 assists but was outplayed by Celtics’ point guard Rajon Rondo. Rondo scored 18 and had 8 assists as the leading scorer for Boston last night.
Both teams scored 21 points in the 1st but Boston would pull away in the 2nd and 3rd quarters outscoring Detroit 56-36 in that stretch. The Celtics got 15 points out of Kevin Garnett who returned from a one game suspension. Rasheed Wallace would add 13 points and 6 rebounds for Detroit. Last night marked the 5th straight game where the Celtics held the Pistons to under 90 points.
The Celtics will play their next two games on the road before returning home to the TD Banknorth Garden to host the Golden State Warriors on 11/26. Celtics tickets are available for all remaining 2008-2009 games.
The Boston Celtics picked up their fourth year option on guard Rajon Rondo on Friday. Rondo played an important part in the Celtics’ 2007-2008 Championship year and at age 22 is still developing his skills.
After getting their 2nd win of the year on Friday night against the Bulls the Celtics will be on the road for the first time this season when they play the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night at the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indiana. In the first two games of the year the Celtics displayed their signature defensive style that led them to their 17th Championship in the 2007-2008 season. Against the Bulls the Celtics held Chicago to under thirty percent shooting, winning 96-80.
The Pacers are 0-1 on the year and shorthanded. They will be without starter Mike Dunleavy once again. The Pacers were one game away from the playoffs last season and have high hopes for getting their this year.
The Celtics will be facing their former coach, Jim O’Brien in Indiana tonight.
Boston Celtics tickets are available for all 2008-2009 games.
