SIX STRAIGHT FOR CELTICS
The Spurs were 8-2 at home before last night. And they'd won 5 straight before last night. both streaks came to an end thanks to Kevin Garnett and the Celtics. KG had 20 points and 7 rebounds to lead the attack. Rondo contributed 12 points and 12 assists. Wallace dropped 13 off the bench.
The Spurs were held to 2/15 at 3 pointers, and helped the C's cause by shooting a dreadful 41% from the free throw line.
The Celtics now sit atop the Eastern Conference, tied with Orlando at 15-4. But unlike the Magic, the C's have an 8.5 game lead in the division.
