Sounds of the game… Celtics 102, 76ers 78

When Paul Pierce scores a season-low six points on 1-of-6 shooting and you still build a 30-point fourth quarter lead, you know you’re a pretty good team. The Boston Celtics, however, may be much, much more than just a pretty good team. They may be in the middle of a season that could better last season’s 66-win world championship run. The Celtics toyed with a Philadelphia 76ers team that showed off six-year, $80 million free agent Elton Brand for the first time. He was of little use to the Sixers since Philly showed it was completely incapable of solving Boston’s swarming defense. The final result, Boston won, 102-78, improving to 15-2 and expanding their lead to an amazing six games in the Atlantic Division.

Paul Pierce said the team did a good job of looking for the red-hot Ray Allen [3].

Ray Allen gave credit to Rajon Rondo for getting him the ball [4].

Doc Rivers said Philly will be a good team later on this season [6].

Rivers said Boston’s D led to its offense [7].

Maurice Cheeks said Philly showed their championship mettle [8].
