C's Roll Past Garnett's Former Team

The Celtics cruised through the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Garden on December 5th, winning by 10 in a game they controlled from the start. All five starters finished in double figures for Boston, led by Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett with 18 a piece. Point guard Rajon Rondo got back on track after returning from his two game suspension by posting a double-double of 17 points and 11 assists. Jeff Green was strong off the bench with eight points and four rebounds in limited minutes.
It was a balanced attack from Minnesota with Kevin Love at the head (19 points, 13 rebounds), but the Wolves could never get it together enough to make the late push they needed. Doc Rivers feels as though things are not there yet, good things are around the corner for this team; "You can feel it starting to come. It's not here, but it's coming and you feel that. We've just got to push through. It's going to be a great month for us." Up next for Boston is a home and home Vs. the 76ers, starting in Philly Friday night and in Boston the following evening.
