Third quarter: Celtics-Pistons
|03.02.10 at 9:34 pm ET|
After three quarters, the Piston lead 75-72 and this game looks like it’s going to go down to the wire. The Celtics led by as many as eight points, but they haven’t been able to put Detroit away.
The Celtics have had balanced scoring at least. All five starters have at least seven points. Ray Allen leads them with 12 points, while Rajon Rondo has 11 points and 11 assists.
Rookie Jonas Jerkebo has been a major problem for the Celtics tonight. He has 14 points and six rebounds and has been all over the floor offensively and defensively. Detroit’s Tayshaun Prince rolled his ankle on teammate Ben Gordon’s foot late in the quarter.
