Holy crap. I cannot remember the last time I witnessed the Celtics pummel an opponent like they did tonight. This was more about Portland being awful then the Celtics dominating. The Blazers were flat-footed and disinterested. Credit the Celtics for smelling blood early and not letting up until late in the 4th. The halftime stats are hilarious. Score: Boston 65 - Portland 30 Turnovers: Portland 17 - Boston 3 Steals: Boston 11 - Portland 1 The lead peaked at 43 points (81-38) midway through the 3rd quarter. I was openly rooting for it to reach 50. The final was 104-86. Boo. KG, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen shot 20-for-30 and combined for 54 points. As you would expect in a massive blowout, all three sat the entire 4th quarter.  Sasha Pavlovic had 10 points and 2 steals. He was a key contributor in the Celtics 38-13 2nd quarter blitz. Yup, Sasha Pavlovic and key contributor in the same sentence. Remember this night. Box score
