Celtics vs Sixers: Game Three
The Celtics responded in the best way possible with a demolition of the Sixers to reclaim home court advantage over the Sixers. The Celtics were led by a big 27 point game from veteran forward Kevin Garnett who had a monster game, adding 13 rebounds and 4 assists to his points tally. Rajon Rondo continued to dominate with 23 points and 14 assists while Paul Pierce added 14 on a bung knee.
“He just knows how to play basketball. He’s a throwback guy.”

Thaddeus Young had 22 off the bench to lead the Sixers off the bench, also playing with a injured knee. Other than him, there was not many positives for the Sixers crowd to cheer about as they were dominated at home.
