At the start of the fourth quarter … Celtics  103, Mavs 78
– The Celtics are in cruise control but they allowed the Mavericks to score 31 points in the third quarter.

– Brandon Bass  wasn’t going to just let Big Baby get to the basket. Bass pushed around his former LSU teammate in a match up that will be fun to watch in the fourth.
– Six minutes to go … is it Gino Time already? A 29-point lead warrants a celebration.
– The Celtics starters outscored the Mavs starting five 75-52.
