Celtics Beat Up Denver Without Garnett

The Celtics continued to win without Kevin Garnett for the second straight game, making Monday night’s victim, the Denver Nuggets, look absolutely pathetic. The C’s went into Denver and easily took this one 114-76.

Ray Allen was the leading scorer with 26 points while Paul Pierce pitched in 22. The two of them will need to continue to perform this well while Garnett is out for the next few weeks. Rajon Rondo had another good game after just coming off his career performance against Phoenix, finishing with 14 points, eight assists, and eight rebounds.

Brian Scalabrine started again in place of Kevin Garnett, but left in the first quarter due to a neck strain. His status is still uncertain for the game on Wednesday against the Clippers.

Leon Powe performed well off the bench for the Green, finishing with 16 points. In fact, every player that appeared for the Celtics had at least two points in this one, including J.R. Giddens. The rookie grabbed his first bucket late in the fourth quarter.

Carmelo Anthony was the only Nuggets starter in double figures with 18 points, while center Johan Petro finished with 10 rebounds. Denver’s leading scorer came off the bench in J.R. Smith who had 19 points.

Wednesday night the Celtics take on the Clippers in L.A. to wrap up the road trip before heading home on Friday for a match-up with the Pacers.
