Notebook: Celtics 107, Sixers 91


Posted Wednesday May 16, 2012 10:40PM

By Andy Jasner, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Boston Celtics took back home-court advantage with a stirring 107-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 3 Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Kevin Garnett scored 27 points and swept 13 rebounds while Paul Pierce had 24 points and 12 rebounds as the Celtics went up 2-1 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals. Mickael Pietrus scored 13 points off the bench and Brandon Bass added 10.

Thaddeus Young led the Sixers with 22 points while Jrue Holiday added 15 points. Lou Williams and Jodie Meeks had 13 each.

QUOTABLE: "He just knows how to play basketball. He's a throwback guy."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers on Pierce's performance despite nursing a sprained MCL in his left knee.

THE STAT: The Celtics committed seven turnovers. Yes, seven. That's going to help you win a whole lot of playoff games with a number like that.

TURNING POINT: After building a 60-49 lead at halftime, the Celtics kept the pressure on and extended that advantage to 25 in the third quarter. They never let the Sixers back in the game and completely silenced the sellout crowd.

HOT: Garnett was 12-for-17 from the field. He hit jumpers. He drove to the basket. Just a terrific offensive effort all the way around.

NOT: Evan Turner missed nine of his 10 shots and was never a factor for the Sixers. Elton Brand was 1-for-6 and Spencer Hawes was 2-for-8.

QUOTABLE II: "We've got to take it, learn from it and try to respond in Game 4."
-- Sixers forward Andre Iguodala

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: In addition to Rondo's 23 points, he added 14 assists and six rebounds.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Any Sixers-Celtics game has the fans buzzing. But a playoff game between these two teams at the Wells Fargo Center for the first time since 2002? The atmosphere was electric. Sixers legend Julius Erving presented the game ball and received a standing ovation. A number of Philadelphia Eagles attended the game including quarterback Michael Vick and tight end Brent Celek. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was also taking in the action.

QUOTABLE III: "We got into a great offensive rhythm and kept it going. Guys were making shots across the board and we just kept building and building our lead."
-- Boston swingman Mickael Pietrus

GOOD MOVE: The Celtics went to their veterans early and often. Garnett and Pierce delivered with monumental performances.

BAD MOVE: The Sixers didn't attack the basket nearly enough. They took too many shots from the perimeter.

QUOTABLE IV: "We didn't pay enough attention to detail tonight."
-- Williams

ROOKIE WATCH: Boston guard E'Twaun Moore had two points while center Greg Stiemsma grabbed one rebound in a brief four-minute stint. For the Sixers, Lavoy Allen had four points while Nikola Vucevic had one point and one rebound.

NOTABLE: The Sixers had their four-game home playoff winning streak snapped. They were 3-0 against the Chicago Bulls after winning Game 4 against the Miami Heat in the first round last season. ... The Celtics topped 100 points in the postseason for the second time. They scored 101 points in Game 4 against the Atlanta Hawks in the first round. ... Boston attempted 28 free throws after having a total of 28 in the first two games of the series. ... Pierce had five offensive rebounds. In his prior playoff career, he had four just once. ... The Celtics outscored the Sixers 50-38 in points in the paint. Philadelphia didn't allow more than 38 points in the paint in eight previous playoff games. During the regular season, the Sixers allowed 36.4 per game, second-lowest in the league. ... Rondo, on the victory: "I think our team responded well tonight. It wasn't just me. Our whole team responded."

NEXT: Game 4 vs. Boston, Friday, 8:00 p.m. ET; Game 5 @ Boston, Monday, TBD, Game 6 vs. Boston, May 23, TBD.
