Coming off a 93-90 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Boston Celtics returned to action on Wednesday night to do battle with the Toronto Raptors. At halftime, so far so good for the C's, as they lead Toronto 57-35 at the TD Garden in Boston.
Brandon Bass continues to prove a clear upgrade over Glen "Big Baby" Davis, as the Celtics' sixth man leads the team with 10 points at halftime to go along with three rebounds. Bass has been playing in place of Jermaine O'Neal, who has only seen five minutes of play tonight and has just two points.
Ray Allen is having a solid game, as he's got nine points at the half in eleven minutes of play. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce both have seven points and three rebounds but Pierce has a team leading six assists to go along with that. Avery Bradley is actually having a deviant game to say the least, as he's got eight points at the half to go along with four assists running the point tonight in place of Rajon Rondo.
E'Twaun Moore (eight points) and Sasha Pavlovic (six points) have had pretty solid performances off Doc Rivers' bench.
As for the Raptors, guard Jerryd Bayless is the high point man with 11 points, which leads the field. DeMar DeRozan has eight points while Aaron Gray has the same point total to go along with a game-high six rebounds. Meanwhile, Jose Calderon and Ed Davis have a combined three points and are one of seven from the field. Ouch.
