First Quarter Wrap: Celtics vs. Heat

First Quarter: Celtics [1] 27 – Heat 26

Without Paul Pierce [2] in the lineup, the question was who will stop Dwyane Wade [3]? The Heat should be wondering, though, who will stop Rajon Rondo [4]?

Rondo leads all players with 8 points and four assists. Wade is right behind him with 7 points and 4 dimes. But the C’s are getting a big boost from Kevin Garnett [5], who has added 7 points and four assists of his own.

The key for the Celtics in the second quarter will be tough defense. The Heat are shooting 65 percent from the field.
