The Celtics got their first win of 2013 with a 94-75 win against the Pacers in Boston. This was the best defense the Celtics have played all season. If only they could string a few of these together. Boston started off slow, scoring only scored 15 points in the 1st quarter, but still managed to only be down 1 at the end of the quarter.  They stayed in the game with outstanding rebounding and old school Celtic defense which has been few and far between lately. Both teams continued to struggle in the 2nd quarter until the Celtics started rolling on the heels of a Paul Pierce's 4 point play. The roll continued with some of the best defense the Celtics have played all year. Rondo and Pierce were hitting, finishing with 12 and 10 respectively in the half. Left off in the less than stellar start for the Celtics this year is the improvement of Rondo's jumper. He needs to shoot more and be more aggressive for us to have a shot this year. Read more »
