  This one looked like a classic 2011-2012 Celtics game.... come out big, suck in the 2nd, show some signs of life, blow it in the last 5 minutes. But instead of following the script in the last 5 minutes, the Celtics went on a 20-7 run.  Let's make this quick cuz I'm tired...  Paul Pierce led the way with 25.  He had it working early and his coast-to-coast layup was the beginning of the end in this one.  Ray Allen turned his ankle late in the game, but he's fine. He only shot 5-12, but he hit 2-3 from deep. KG's turnaround jumper when the Clippers had a chance to shift momentum was a key bucket. He had 21 & 8 tonight to go along with 2 huge blocks. Brandon Bass had it going early and was a big key to fast Celtics starts in the 1st and 3rd quarter.  He was plagued with foul trouble all night... he even fouled out... and finished with 10-9.  And some of the fouls on him were horrible, horrible calls.  Brandon deserved better tonight.  Rajon Rondo won the point
