Boston Celtics defeat San Antonio Spurs

Thursday, December 3, 2009

The Boston Celtics have defeated the San Antonio Spurs 90-83 to move to 3-0 on the current road trip, and 15-4 overall.

The first-quarter malaise that has plagued the Celtics so far this season is only a memory now. For the third straight game, Boston has jumped out of the gates with a great first-quarter on their way to an impressive victory.

Once again, Kevin Garnett lead the attack with 20 pts, 7 rebs 5 asts, while Rajon Rondo chipped in 12 pts and 12 asts on a rare off night from Paul Pierce, who shot 2-9 on his way to only 8 pts.

Rasheed Wallace was huge off the bench, contributing 13 pts and adding 4 blocks.

Most impressive, however, was the defensive effort against Richard Jefferson and Manu Ginobli, who combined to shoot 7-25 for a measly 17 pts.

For the Spurs, Tim Duncan (16 pts, 15 rebs) and Tony Parker (17 pts, 7 asts) were steady as always and rookie forward Dejuan Blair was a spark off the bench, adding 18 pts and 11 rebs.

Stay tuned for more to come from Celtics Town on perhaps the biggest win of the season.
