Celtics Vs. Bucks Halftime Score: Boston Trailing 54-50 At The Half

BOSTON - Rajon Rondo (13 points, three assists) started well with eight first-quarter points, but the Boston Celtics could not contain the Milwaukee Bucks in the second quarters as the C's find themselves down, 54-50 at halftime on Wednesday night at TD Garden.

Boston opened the half on a 10-3 run, led by two threes from Ray Allen -- one of which was a deep leaner off the shot clock that the three point king banked in. Rondo and Ray had six by the 4:22 mark, and the Celts led 17-13. Milwaukee closed out the quarter with a 12-8 run to tie the game at 25 after 12 minutes.

Using a 6-2 run to open the quarter, the Bucks slowly took control of the game and led 50-43 after a Carlos Delfino three with under two minutes remaining in the half. Drew Gooden took over in the quarter, scoring 10 points to finish with a game-leading 16 at the half. Rondo drained a coast-to-coast layup and Keyon Dooling hit a three after a steal to bring the C's within four at the break.
