OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Celtics end the first half with a brutally tough game against the Thunder, who are everything the Celtics don't want to see, athletic, fast and offensively stellar. Kevin Durant is averaging 27.7 points per game while Russell Westbrook is averaging 23.4 and James Harden 16.8.

The Celtics have allowed 29 straight opponents under 100 points but that will be challenged tonight without Rajon Rondo, Chris Wilcox and Jermaine O'Neal in the lineup.
