Shorthanded Celtics still too much for Raptors

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- Despite missing three starters and another rotation player, the Boston Celtics didn't miss a beat in putting the kibosh on the Toronto Raptors' five-game winning streak, 103-96.

Taking advantage of Toronto's Swiss-cheese defense, the Celtics -- sans Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Marquis Daniels -- shot 51 percent and took a ten-point lead by halftime. For all intents and purposes, the rest of the night was a game of keep-away.

It was hardly a statement win, but winning without their leaders was yet another example of why the Celtics are the Celtics and most everyone else is most everyone else.

"Without their main players, [the Celtics] still go out and there and play tough, play hard and play like they want to be a championship team," DeMar DeRozan said.

"They're a good team...especially on their home court," Chris Bosh said. "No matter who's playing, they execute their offense well."

From an execution standpoint, the first quarter went from being a best-case scenario for the Celtics, who led 29-20 at one point, to living up to the drastically lowered expectations of the evening after Toronto closed the period on a 7-0 run. But Boston suffered no ill effects from the momentum swing, outscoring the Raptors by eight in the second quarter to go up 58-48.

With so many of their playmakers out, the Celtics did well to avoid allowing the remaining rotation players to dominate the ball, choosing instead to trust the system. Other than some stagnant possessions when Ray Allen sat on the bench, Boston held to the team philosophy, swinging the ball for 13 assists on 19 first-half field goals.

"When we dribbled a lot, something bad happened," Boston coach Doc Rivers said. "When the ball moved a lot, something good happened."

Putting the cherry on top of the offensive cake was the fact that six Celtics scored in double digits and nine out of ten players -- the outlier being Glen Davis -- had at least one assist.

The Raptors shot 52.8 percent in the first half, making just as many field goals as Boston, but shot themselves in the foot by putting the Celtics at the line 20 times, fouling such legendary shooters as Kendrick Perkins 17 feet away from the basket.

"We have to learn to play like they did where you play that hard of defense and not have fouls called against you," Toronto coach Jay Triano said.

And once they had dug themselves a hole, Toronto never again seemed to be a legitimate threat. Yes, they shrunk the lead to five with just over a minute to play, but as evidenced by their 12 second-half points in the paint, their method was to shoot themselves to a win. No matter how depleted the Boston defense was, using that strategy against it tends to be a futile effort.

"Against this team, if you don't go inside and out you're probably going to shoot low percentage shots from the outside," Bosh said. "You're not going to make them all."

Often the player most people want to see in rather than out, Rasheed Wallace had one of his most productive games in Boston, scoring 16 efficient points on 11 shots and balancing his line with six boards and four assists. He also capped off the evening with 3:11 to play, spinning baseline out of the post for a two-handed dunk that hearkened back to his early Portland Trail Blazer years.

"When Rasheed wants to, he can be one of the best ball players in the league," Kendrick Perkins said. "When he comes to play and he's focused, man, he's great."

The Celtics got another vintage performance out of Tony Allen, who has been Pierce's stand-in over the last week. Allen has had better scoring and rebounding nights, but thrust into the starting guard role, he responded with a season-high seven assists in a team-high 35 minutes.

"I looked at it like I got put in a position to show coach some things I can do," Allen said. "I think I answered that challenge today. Hopefully I can carry this over to the next game."
