Recap: Pierce does it all in win over Pacers

Pp

Who needs Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo? The Celtics have now won four straight games without their starting backcourt. 

Paul Pierce was the hero. How's this for a balanced stat sheet? 28 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. The Truth had 17 in the 3rd quarter, asserting himself offensively as Indiana picked up their intensity.

Chris Wilcox (14 points, 6-8 FG, 6 rebounds) played his best game in green.

Another strong defensive performance from Bar Fight. The Celtics won the battle of the boards, 45-42. I was really impressed with the effort. They didn't look like a team that clawed it's way back from a 27 point deficit vs Orlando 24 hours ago. 

Stat of the night: Indiana 1-19 (5%) from 3
