Celtics spread it around in win over Jazz

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- This wasn't so much a ballgame as it was a moment for the fans.

The Boston Celtics used a balanced offense to run away from the Utah Jazz in the third quarter, posting a 105-86 win Wednesday night, but only the win column will remember those details in the coming weeks.

The moment came in the third quarter when Kevin Garnett leapt to catch a Rajon Rondo alley-oop and slammed it home as Boston's bench and fans alike rose in fervor -- reassuring all those who continued to have doubts after Garnett's offseason knee surgery. It was a play, Garnett said, that made him feel like a kid in a cornfield.

Earlier in the year, Garnett had clanked a tomahawk dunk off back iron. Earlier, he had completed alley-oops below the rim, scooping the ball. But on this night, with defenders on either side, he exploded. Even if it's to be a rare occurrence, now it's known that, at least, he can.

The game itself was decided by Boston's offense, which, after the Celtics had three days of practice, looked as fluid and potent as it had all season with seven players reaching double figures. Players consistently made hard, direct cuts and often all five Celtics touched the ball on a given possession.

"It's like revisiting everybody's individual lab. You go in there and mix up your potion," Ray Allen said of the time off. "When you're not in it for a while you definitely need to get that feeling going back to it."

The Celtics' first half was the epitome of balanced scoring with three players in double digits and two more contributing at least six points. With Boston mounting a 16-6 run which spanned the first two quarters, they finished the half with 16 assists on 21 first-half field goals. The same play translated to a 17-8 run to begin the third, and the Jazz were silenced.

"Execution tonight was fantastic," Doc Rivers said. "Obviously there's not going to be nights where your top seven players have double figures, but when you get those nights that's pretty good."

Otherwise it was a typical evening, complete with demoralizing defense and a put-away run in the third. The Celtics defense often pushed the Jazz outside and into jumpers, which led to Jerry Sloan sitting Mehmet Okur and Carlos Boozer for much of the third quarter with the game still in question (neither reached five minutes in the quarter).

"There ain't any rules against them rebounding," Sloan said. "If you're just going to stay out there and shoot shots...and not defend and not rebound. I thought we would try someone else.

"There were a lot of things that happened that we would like to not have happen. We're trying to find ourselves a little bit now."

That's been a common reaction for those visiting TD Garden -- other than the Phoenix Suns -- but it didn't help that Utah's best player, Deron Williams, did not look like himself with a sore back and Rajon Rondo hounding him all night.

At the beginning of Sloan's pregame press conference, it was announced that Deron Williams would be a game-time decision. Sixty seconds later he was a go. But, as Rondo is wont to have big games against the big names, it didn't really matter. Matching Williams nearly minute-for-minute, Rondo (14 points, 11 assists) guided the offense to a peak while keeping Williams in check (13 points, four assists).

"We were not playing tough at all," Williams said. "They come in, they do their job, they get stops.

"They hold everybody accountable. That's what it takes to be a championship team."

The first half seemed constantly on the verge of turning into a double-digit lead for Boston -- as it eventually did -- but Utah kept pulling themselves out of the hole by maximizing its possessions despite poor shooting percentages. At the end of the half, Utah had 11 offensive rebounds, which remained the only mark on an otherwise unblemished night for Boston.

The game was stamped and sealed by Garnett's dunk, however. Of course, it was only a moment, but so is the final buzzer, when the win officially gets chalked up. Tonight, what happened after one might be just as important as what happened after the other.
