Quick Start in Milwaukee Not Enough
On the second night of a back-to-back for the Celtics on the road, the team came out surprisingly fresh without Rajon Rondo in uniform jumping out to a 17-0 lead against the Bucks. Things only went down hill from there. Brandon Jennings hit a late three pointer with 24 seconds left that put the Bucks ahead for good in their 91-88 victory. Jason Terry did a good job filling in for Rondo finishing with 15 points and 11 assists, and Jeff Green was able to string together another solid performance with 18 points and six rebounds. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett each finished with 19 and 17 points respectively, but the Bucks were just too much as they were able to comeback led by a career night from Larry Sanders. Just one night after Sanders compiled his first career triple double, he came back with a stat line of 18 points, 16 boards and five blocks. Milwaukee has caused a lot of problems for the Celtics this year, taking two of their three games so far. Boston will get plenty of rest after this one, next up are the Timberwolves at the Garden on Wednesday night.
