Celtics-Spurs notebook


By Tim Price, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday March 31, 2011 11:40PM

THE FACTS: Rajon Rondo led the Celtics with 22 points and had 14 assists, and Boston used a second-half shooting surge to hand the Spurs their fifth straight defeat by a count of 107-97 Thursday at AT&T Center. The Celtics (52-22) shot better than 60 percent in both the third and fourth quarters and also got big contributions from Paul Pierce (21 points, 11 rebounds) and Kevin Garnett (20 points on 9-of-12 shooting). After missing the last four games for the Spurs (57-18), Tim Duncan returned with 20 points and 13 rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "Tonight, we just made shots. Let's be honest. We kept moving the ball and Rondo kept taking shots."
-- Boston coach Doc Rivers

THE STAT: Boston certainly knocked down a lot of open jumpers, but the Celtics ran their offense efficiently enough to outscore San Antonio 20-10 in the paint in the third quarter. Most of that was because of Rondo, who shot 4-for-6 and had five assists. It was a tie game at half, but Boston entered the fourth quarter with a 77-70 lead.

TURNING POINT: The Spurs led by four points after Matt Bonner hit a pair of 3-pointers and Tony Parker converted a 3-point play on consecutive possessions midway through the third quarter. But the Spurs went cold when they missed their next nine shots -- five of them 3-point tries. The Celtics answered with points on six straight possessions with Rondo getting half of those and setting up another one with an assist.

QUOTABLE II: "The game was won when we got a little 3-happy in the third quarter. Then the transition defense didn't follow. They took advantage of it."
-- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich

HOT: Garnett had his best game since New York on March 21 (10-of-15, 24 points). His effort against San Antonio (9-of-12) was a bounce back from Monday's 2-of-4 night for six points in the loss to Indiana.

NOT: The Spurs are the best 3-point shooting team in the league, but recent play doesn't reflect that. They were 8-of-29 and are shooting 26 percent in the last two games (they were at 40 percent for the season coming into the game).

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: With 22 points and 14 assists, Rondo has hit double-figure scoring in four of the last five games and three times had a double-double. Before that, he went five games without double figures in any category except minutes (speaking of minutes, he's exceeded 40 in each of the last five games).

ROOKIE WATCH: With Duncan back in the lineup from a sprained ankle, Tiago Splitter played four minutes after averaging 22 minutes in the four games Duncan missed.

NOTABLE: Nenad Krstic left the game late in the first half with a right knee injury and did not return. He will have an MRI and will miss an undetermined amount of games. The Spurs haven't encountered a losing streak as long as this since they ended the 1996-97 season with six losses. The Celtics have not lost in San Antonio the past four seasons, and this season series ends with a Celtics sweep. Jermaine O'Neal made his first appearance since Jan. 10 (he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Feb. 4). He played 11 minutes and had a key basket and free throw after being fouled by Antonio McDyess that gave Boston a 82-72 lead with 10 minutes to go. Pierce is five games away from matching Bill Russell (963 games) for fourth place in games played in a Celtics uniform. Duncan passed Dennis Rodman and into 21st place on the NBA's career rebounding list with 11,967 boards.

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Friday @ Atlanta, Sunday vs. Detroit, Tuesday vs. Philadelphia. For the Spurs, Friday @ Houston, Sunday vs. Phoenix, Tuesday @ Atlanta.
