Hot shooting, second-half defense leads Celtics past Raptors


By Couper Moorhead, for NBA.com

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- If this game was any indication, the Atlantic Division might already be a wrap.

It's far too early for definitive statements, of course, but that's just how incomplete the Toronto Raptors looked in losing to the Boston Celtics, 116-103, Friday night. That's because the Raptors were quite literally defenseless, allowing 62.3 percent shooting while surrendering 68 points in the paint.

But it was no mystery that the Raptors were a struggling defensive team. What tonight did prove, however, was that winning the division would only be meaningful to one of these teams.

"When have the Boston Celtics ever looked at the Atlantic Division?" Paul Pierce (18 points) said. "We played with bigger goals."

After a first half which resembled pre-game warmups more closely than competitive NBA basketball -- "buddyball" as Boston coach Doc Rivers called it -- the Celtics made quite clear just how wide the gap is between the two defenses.

"We wanted to start the third quarter with a lot of energy," Kevin Garnett (12 points, six boards) said. "Defensively, we turned up the heat and that was the difference in the game.

"As long as we have that energy defensively, I'm not going to bet against us ever, ever ever."

Over a five-minute stretch in the third, beginning with Toronto up four, the Raptors missed seven straight shots and committed four turnovers. Momentum changed after a 42-second possession by Boston, when consecutive offensive rebounds resulted in a Kendrick Perkins dunk and eventually a 13-0 run. Toronto couldn't muster the defense to recover and the game was swung permanently.

Taking advantage of Toronto's inability to defend the interior, Perkins went a perfect 8-for-8 to score a season-high 18 points off both assisted dunks and post-ups, allowing Toronto center Andrea Bargnani just seven points in the process.

"We played them after they caught the ball instead of before they caught the ball," Raptors coach Jay Triano said.

"Doc said this needed to be a real power game," Perkins said. "I thought, go attack early. The only negative about this game is that we didn't really get any stops, it wasn't the Celtics defense tonight."

As much as Boston has gotten caught up playing fast with the league's more up-tempo teams, tonight they found themselves mimicking the opponent's defense.

The Raptors had given up a league-worst 116.4 points per 100 possessions -- four points worse than the next closest team -- so nobody in their right mind was expecting them to get much in the way of outright stops. But the Celtics are held, rightfully, in high regard on that end, and took a little while to warm up before the familiar script ran its course.

Depending on how you look at it, the first half was either a clinic on scoring, or on how not to guard anybody. The Celtics shot 67 percent in the half -- 83 percent at the end of the first -- while the Raptors made baskets at a 66 percent clip. The difference was, Boston had 38 points in the paint by halftime, as many as some teams average per game, to Toronto's 22 down under. It was clear which team had a scoring drought coming.

"At halftime, I said, 'First team that plays defense wins,'" Rivers said.

Sure enough, with Boston's directions in hand, the Raptors wandered into the desert just long enough to lose their grasp on the game.

Toronto did shoot 55 percent and had 48 points in the paint themselves, but they were hollow offensive numbers, benefiting from the first half and a late run that didn't even come close to coming close. Yet they are concerning offensive numbers for Boston, stemming from inconsistencies that will be tested with a four-game road trip beginning Sunday.

"Usually you come in the half and you shoot 67 percent, we should be up 10-15 points," Pierce said. "We're trying to put four quarters together instead of stretches."

"Doc told us yesterday, not to get bored with the process and I'm glad he rejuvenated that," Garnett said. "The mentality now is to take it game by game."
