Again, fans wearing No. 5 Kevin Garnett jersey and No. 33 Larry Bird jersey cheered up for their beloved team’s another win. Friday night’s 105-87 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder gave the Boston Celtics a perfect completion of the four-game trip.
Totally scoring 23 points, Garnett scored nine consecutive points, including three dunks, to put Boston in command in the first 5 minutes of the second half. His two-handed alley-oop jam, which followed a pair of right-handed dunks, pushed the lead to 18 at 71-53 and the Thunder were never closer than 15 after that. And Paul Pierce added another 21 points in the first half to build a solid foundation for Celtics’ win.
The Celtics had seven players score in double figures en route to their seventh straight victory, with Rajon Rondo contributing 15 points, Kendrick Perkins scoring 13 points, Ray Allen and Eddie House each having 11 points and Rasheed Wallace scoring 10 points.
