Rajon Rondo had 18 points and seven assists for Boston. Kevin Garnett, who was ejected in the fourth quarter following a flagrant foul on Tyler Hansbrough, also had 18 points and seven rebounds.

Tyler Hansbrough came off the bench to lead Indiana with 19 points. David West was the only other Pacer in double-figures. He finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
