After a slow start in Oklahoma last night, the Boston Celtics clamped down on the Thunder to cruise to their 4th win of the year. Paul Pierce led the way for the Celtics with 20 points and 9 rebounds in the 96-83 victory. It was the Celtics’ first game and first win against the relocated Sonics team.
The Celtics gave up 29 points in the 1st quarter as the Thunder came out strong. Boston clearly has a large target on their backs and should expect most teams to come out gunning against them. The Celtics turned it around in the 2nd period scoring 30 and holding the Thunder to just 15 points. Rajon Rondo chipped in with 11 assists while Kendrick Perkins had 4 blocked shots.
Boston Celtics tickets are available for all home games including their 11/7 game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
