C's Drop Back to Back in Texas
The following evening the Celtics were in San Antonio taking on a Spurs team that had their number earlier this season at the Garden. Another tough game on the road for the C's ended with their second double digit loss in a row, 103-88. The Spurs went on a 13-3 run in the fourth that put the game out of Boston's reach, solidifying a win despite only five points from Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili playing only four minutes. The Celtics were led by Paul Pierce and Jason Terry who finished with 18 points each, Kevin Garnett chipped in with 13 to go along with six rebounds. But the Spurs proved to be too much, Tony Parker had 22 points and Gary Neal was right behind him with 20.
The Celts will try and finish the three game road trip strong Tuesday night in Chicago, before returning home to play the Cavs on Wednesday.
