Paul, Rondo help Celtics turn game around to nip 76ers

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- With no Lou Williams, no Elton Brand and no Marreese Speights to back up Brand, the Philadelphia 76ers probably shouldn't have been in the discussion about this game, much less in the game itself.

But behind the strength of 13-for-20 shooting behind the arc, the 76ers took things to the wire with the Boston Celtics, who needed a fading baseline jumper from jumper-adverse Rajon Rondo to take a 113-110 victory.

A win that, without Paul Pierce -- playing all 24 minutes of the second half -- would not have been.

"He's been MVP to me," Boston coach Doc Rivers said. "Not only just with his play, but all over. He was on guys in the second quarter and then halftime about our play. He can cook Thanksgiving dinner for someone and then he'll be doing it all.

"Paul, to me, was the savior of the game."

Pierce's 27 points paced the Celtics, but his biggest play of the game came on defense. With 34 seconds remaining and Boston up two, Pierce stepped in front of a driving Andre Iguodala (25 points) to take a charge, clearing the path for Rondo's clincher, a shot that may bode well for Rondo's jump-shooting future.

"All it takes is one," Ray Allen said. "You see a situation you're in and you step up big for your team. It can definitely cause a small fire [to turn into] a blaze for him."

Rondo had been underwhelming in his consistency of late and for three quarters was a non-factor. Last Friday, he was benched for much of the fourth quarter in the loss to the Orlando Magic. Fortunately for Boston, he was on the floor and in attack mode for tonight's final quarter.

"He has a gear, we would like him in that gear a little bit more," Rivers said. "He picks and chooses and sometimes in the right way."

While Rondo was mystifying earlier in the game for routinely passing up short shots, he owned the fourth. At one point penetrating the lane for three consecutive layups followed by two assists, his aggressiveness was in stark contrast to a first half in which Rondo, and the Celtics, were outplayed.

The half followed the troubling pattern of many Boston starts this season. They scored just fine, but couldn't get stops. And they didn't finish the stops they made, allowing 10 offensive rebounds in the half. At the break, the Celtics held a one-point lead.

"They were making it an athletic contest and we weren't making it a physical contest," Rivers said.

Just as other, less talented teams, have done with the Celtics, the 76ers hung around with energy and offense. But unlike some of those teams, many of which succumbed to third-quarter runs or scoring droughts -- due primarily to Boston's defense -- the 76ers made a legitimate threat, withstanding a 10-2 Boston run in the fourth quarter.

And though the 76ers can thank Iguodala's 10 points in the final period for that, their bench was what made those points relevant, combining for 43 points in the first three quarters --35 from Jason Kapono and Willie Green combined.

"That's a credit to their professionalism, credit to the quality of basketball players they are," Philadelphia coach Eddie Jordan said. "It got physical and that was a special key for us that we couldn't back down, couldn't be intimidated and we certainly were not."

Not many teams seem to be intimidated by the Celtics these days. In fact, as with Philadelphia shooting well above its mediocre season percentages, many are saving their best performances for Boston. Before, it was happening on the road, the Celtics escaping Minnesota and New York and losing in Indiana. But now, even at home, the Celtics seem to be relying more and more on second-half surges.

But even with back-to-back games needing late-game heroics against sub-.500 record teams, a win is still a win. Right?
