Green Leads All Scorers
The Celtics, who led for most of the game on Wednesday night, ran of out steam down the stretch and fell to the Clippers 96-88 at TD Garden. The C's were within two points late in the fourth before Jamal Crawford hit back-to-back 3s to put the game out of reach.
Jeff Green led the matchup in scoring with 29 points, while Brandon Bass earned the lone double-double of the game for the second consecutive night with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Jordan Crawford had 20 points, five rebounds and nine assists.
