Celtics Vs. 76ers Halftime Score: Boston Leads, 50-36

The Boston Celtics leads the Philadelphia 76ers, 50-36, at halftime from the TD Garden on Sunday.

After the first quarter, Boston and Philadelphia had a 25-22 lead. Both teams were shooting very well from the field but the C's were a couple of shots better. Paul Pierce had a hot first quarter with 11 points on 5-7 shooting. Rajon Rondo had five assists but was too careless with the ball and also had three turnovers which kept the score a little closer than it needed to be. Andre Iguodala had two of his 7 points in the first quarter on an alley-oop dunk following a Rondo turnover.

The Celtics continued their hot shooting start into the second quarter and quickly built a 42-26 lead through the first six minutes of the quarter. The Sixers couldn't make much of a run and didn't cut into the C's lead. Boston shot 57.6% in the first half while a poor second quarter dropped Philadelphia to 38.5% from the field for the half.

At the half, Boston is being led in scoring by Kevin Garnett with 12 points. Pierce chipped in 11 points in the half. The Sixers are led by Andre Iguodala with 11 points.
