|03.12.10 at 8:09 pm ET|
After scoring just 12 points in the first quarter against the Grizzlies, the Celtics more than doubled that point total against the Pacers. They lead 29-23 after the first 12 minutes.
The Celtics offense has been fueled by Rajon Rondo, who leads all players with 10 points (4-6 FG). Nate Robinson provided the high energy play of the quarter when he picked off a bad pass and nailed a 3-pointer with 45 seconds left. This put the Celtics up by six and got the crowd on their feet.
Troy Murphy leads the Pacers with 7 points.
