Celtics Fall to Pacers in First Night of Back-to-Back
Boston's Rally Falls Short
The Celtics fought back from a 15-point deficit to make it a one-point game in the fourth quarter Tuesday night, but the Pacers locked down and handed the visitors a 94-83 loss in Indiana. Boston was undersized against the home team down low, but it still managed to grab 20 offensive rebounds.
Jared Sullinger led the C's in scoring with 17 points, thanks in part to his impressive performance on the offensive glass (seven of his team-high nine rebounds were offensive boards). Chris Johnson dropped in 14 points off the bench, while Kris Humphries had 15 points to go with nine rebounds.
