Celtics Sweep Season Series Against Toronto in OT

The Celtics took their second game in a row and started a new winning streak of against the Raptors Monday night. They beat Toronto for the second night in row, 115-109 in OT. Paul Pierce played exceptionally well in a comeback win where the Celtics were down most of the game until the fourth quarter.

Pierce finished the night 39 points and nine rebounds to lead all scorers after playing 49 minutes of basketball on a rough knee. Kevin Garnett had another double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Ray Allen had 12 points and Brian Scalabrine finished with 11 points after starting his second game in a row due to an injured Kendrick Perkins. Leon Powe had 10 points off the bench.

Toronto played well for most of the night but let the Celtics get back into the game late, even though they were able to send it into overtime after a three pointer with one second left in the fourth by Andrea Bargnani. Bargnani, in the end, finished with 23 points. Chris Bosh had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Roko Ukic had 10 points off the bench.

The Celtics must be getting some of their confidence back after these two wins against the Raptors and will look to continue that against the Nets later this week. Kendrick Perkins should be back in action against New Jersey, but Tony Allen’s status and time of return is still up in the air. The Celtics look to keep the winning streak against New Jersey Wednesday night in Boston.
