Third Quarter Update
|04.10.09 at 9:23 pm ET|
Things are getting interesting at the Garden as D-Wade and Paul Pierce put on a nice little show in the third quarter. Wade scored 10 of his 20 points in the quarter, while Pierce went for a dirty dozen to give him 19 and the C’s are holding a 79-72 lead.
It’s been an entertaining game with both teams shooting around 50 percent, balanced scoring on both sides and Rajon Rondo continues to work his way toward a triple-double. He has seven points, nine rebounds and eight assists going into the final frame.
Elsewhere, the Cavs are up 11 on Philly and about to wrap up the top overall seed in the East.
