Celtics overpower outmanned Warriors in second half

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- Eight-player rotations are generally reserved for that late-season push, but for the injury-riddled Golden State Warriors, eight was almost enough to hand the Boston Celtics their third consecutive loss.

Except almost only lasted until the third period, one which few teams escape unscathed at TD Garden.

Preying on the Warriors' lack of size and bodies, the Boston Celtics worked their way inside for 48 points in the paint and ran off a 12-0 stretch in the third to notch their ninth victory, 109-95, Wednesday night.

"We were right there the whole game," Warriors coach Don Nelson said, "but just didn't play in the third quarter."

With the Warriors hardly putting any size on the floor, the Celtics went to Kendrick Perkins early and often. With little resistance offered, Perkins posited himself deep in the paint, either earning close shots or forcing the Warriors to put him on the line. By halftime, he had 12 points.

"That was the focus of the game," Paul Pierce said. "Trying to get the ball inside knowing how small they were."

But even as they executed the gameplan, the Celtics looked slow to the ball, allowing the Warriors to shoot 50 percent from the field as they took a mere one-point lead into halftime. Boston looked no better than the team that lost back-to-back games last weekend to Atlanta and Indiana. Fortunately for them, someone spoke up at halftime.

"We had one of those conversations every team has," Kevin Garnett said. "The Captain (Pierce) here sort of pulled everybody together and just talked to us about what we needed to do to go out in the second half.

"I thought we followed his lead."

None did more than Rajon Rondo.

With the game tied at the 8:49 mark of the third, the Celtics proceeded to hold the Warriors scoreless for the next four minutes, riding an aggressive Rajon Rondo to a 13-point lead at the end of the quarter.

"He was terrific in the second half," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "He came out in the third quarter and played with unbelievable speed and energy. They couldn't stay in front of him."

Rondo had his most complete game in recent memory, rebounding from two early fouls to tie his season-high with 18 points -- 12 in the third, nine in the paint -- along with seven boards and 12 assists. And once he opened the floodgates, Boston's shooters finished things off.

After back-to-back triples from Eddie House and Rasheed Wallace in the opening minutes of the fourth, the Warriors were going to need something that's been quite rare for them -- defense -- to even consider a comeback.

Because for once, they couldn't count on their, for lack of a better word, weird offense.

"This team is very unorthodox, very unusual style," Garnett said. "Nellieball is something different. It's always been effective when it worked."

Though they are surprisingly efficient on offense given their lack of true distributors and big bodies, Golden State was stifled once it reached the quarter that has doomed them as much as it has saved the Celtics.

"Very few games have we come out in the third quarter like we do at the beginning of the game," Nelson said.

The Celtics, on the other hand, have been one of the best third-quarter teams over the last two years, posting a second-best +2.4 scoring margin in 2008, and a +3.9 this season through 11 games, good for sixth in the league.

Raja Bell, who is scheduled to have season-ending wrist surgery, played 23 minutes for the depleted Warriors in what should be his only appearance for the team this year.

"Because we're down to seven guys, he offered to go ahead and play," Don Nelson said. "He's going to leave us tomorrow to go have surgery."

Rivers mentioned after the game that even had the Celtics won their back-to-back last weekend, they still would have had plenty of work to do. The opposite was true tonight, with the Celtics looking more reminiscent of the San Antonio Spurs teams that have built momentum throughout season's past than of recent hot-start Boston squads.

"We did hold a great offensive team under 100," Rivers said. "But we're still a better team [than this]."
