At the half, the Celtics [1] have a 48-47 lead in Dallas.

Paul Pierce [2] leads the Celtics with 12 points, while Rajon Rondo [3] and Ray Allen [4] each have eight.In the strangest stat line from the first half, Kevin Garnett [5] is 0-for-4 from the floor, but has seven rebound and five steals.

Both teams got off to a slow start as the Celtics missed their first five shots and the Mavs missed five of their first six. But things picked up quickly after that and the Celtics took a 30-24 lead after one quarter.

Pierce scored 10 points in the quarter, but the biggest difference was at the free throw line where the Celtics made 12-of-13 shots and were plus-eight at the line compared to Dallas. The Mavs got up 23 shots in the first quarter, but shot only 43 percent.
