Pierce, Moore Spark Huge Comeback Win For Celtics
Sleep on these Celtics once? Shame on you.
Sleep on these Celtics twice (in four days)? Wow... SHAME ON YOU!
When it became known that five key Celtics, including two starters and All-Stars, would not play in Mondays game against Orlando, the entire Magic team fell asleep. The evidence to prove that point was plentiful by that end of the night: Orlando set several franchise records for offensive futility and completely quit on the court as the Celtics ran away with an 87-56 win.
On Thursday night in Orlando there was a different tone. The Magic wanted to come out and make a statement that Mondays game was a fluke and that they are, in fact, a top-tier team. They proved that fact with authority in the first half of this contest as the Celtics struggled without the services of three of their five starters.
