Celtics' Comeback Bid Falls Short Against Thunder
After trailing by as many as 27 points, the Celtics cut the Thunder's lead down to seven in the fourth quarter but eventually fell 119-104 Wednesday night in Oklahoma City. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce led the way for the C's with 23 points apiece.
KG finished with 23 points and 13 rebounds in his first game back from a family issue. All five C's starters scored in double-figures, including 16 points from Mickael Pietrus, who logged a spot start at power forward due to multiple injuries.
