Rondo turns it on in second half to lift Celtics over Sixers

PHILADELPHIA (NBA.com exclusive) -- Rajon Rondo never worries if his shot isn't falling. He does too many other things well.

Despite going scoreless in the first half on 0-for-4 shooting, Rondo was doing what he does best -- looking for open teammates and creating havoc on the defensive end.

Rondo finished with 16 points, 11 assists and six rebounds en route to his 31st double-double of the season for the Boston Celtics in their 96-86 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers before a crowd of 19,008 Friday night at the Wachovia Center.

The Celtics (39-21) won their sixth straight game in this arena and recorded their 22nd road victory of the season.

"I had open looks in the first half," Rondo said. "They didn't go down. That doesn't bother me. I'm always looking to make things happen no matter how I'm shooting. All I care about is we got the win. Individual stats don't matter to me. The coaches tell us to keep playing no matter the circumstances."

Boston built an 11-point lead early in the fourth but saw it whittled to five.

Like the Celtics have done all season, they made enough big plays down the stretch to win.

Leading 90-85 in the final two minutes, Kendrick Perkins swatted away a driving layup attempt by Lou Williams.

On the Celtics' next possession, Paul Pierce missed a jumper, but they gathered the offensive rebound. Pierce then hit two free throws to seal the victory.

Boston outrebounded the Sixers 41-30 with nine Celtics registering at least one rebound.

"It's a total team effort for us when we win and we know that," said Perkins, who had six points, six rebounds and four blocked shots. "We stepped up the defensive intensity in the fourth quarter. We got stops and some key rebounds. I thought we were physical, and I liked how we responded when they made a run at us."

More importantly, the Celtics are getting healthy. For the veterans on this team, that should pay dividends as the postseason inches closer.

Kevin Garnett led the way with 22 points, Ray Allen scored 16 and Glen Davis contributed 12 and six rebounds off the bench.

"It feels good to be healthy," said Pierce, who scored seven points on 1-for-9 shooting. "It has only been two games. It has been against teams we are supposed to beat. It is a start. We have 20 or so games left and we are starting to get ready for the playoffs."

Conversely, the Sixers are likely getting ready for an offseason of change after their fifth straight loss dropped them to 22-39.

The Sixers had trouble on defense as Boston shot 51 percent from the field and 22-for-27 from the free-throw line.

"They kept us in the pick-and-roll," said Sixers forward Andre Iguodala, who scored 14 points and added nine assists. "I think that Rondo got four or five drives to the basket and then two foul shots consecutively. I think we never really adjusted to make that stop, and they found a weakness and kept going to it."

Sixers coach Eddie Jordan said that Rondo's ability to break down the defense was a major factor.

"We tried to get a hold on him and put some pressure on him, trap him," Jordan said. "We tried to lay off him and force him to make jump shots. He is just a terrific player. He gets to where he wants to go and finishes the play or dimes it or lays it off for someone else to finish."

With 22 games, the Celtics are hoping for a strong finish. They'll get some help when veteran Michael Finley joins the team on Saturday. Finley appeared in 25 games this season for the Spurs.

"Adding a veteran is a good thing," Perkins said. "We feel like we're getting healthy and going to the playoffs with another solid player is a very good thing."
