Celtics Bounce Back After Rare Loss at Home

By on March 16, 2008 in

The Boston Celtics easily handled the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, one day after losing at home to the Utah Jazz. The Celtics were without one of their Big Three on Saturday as Ray Allen sat out to rest an injured heel. Despite his absence the Celtics were in complete control, even resting Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in the fourth quarter.

Garnett had a game high 19 points for the Celtics while Pierce and Rajon Rondo added 13 apiece. New addition Sam Cassell finally got his chance to impress the team. Cassell added 10 points, 5 assists and 3 steals off the bench for the Celtics.

The Celtics were happy to get the win while also resting Pierce and Garnett. The Celtics will need the rest on their current road trip with games against the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks. The Houston Rockets have won 21 straight games.

The Celtics return home on March 24 to take on the Philadelphia 76ers. Boston Celtics tickets are available for this and all remaining home games. Celtics Playoff tickets are also available.
