The Celtics have seen a 15-point lead disappear here at the Garden. Boston trails at halftime, 46-44.
To say that Brian Scalabrine is having a big night would be an understatement. Scalabrine had 10 points and 7 rebounds in the first half, both of which surpass his previous highs this season for an entire game.
Ryan Gomes has been out for most of the half with foul trouble. Scalabrine took most of his minutes.
Leading scorer in this upside down game? Former Celtic Chucky Atkins, who has 14 points.
Injured forward Wally Szczerbiak sat at the end of the Celtics bench in the first half. Doc Rivers said before the game he doubts Szczerbiak will play on Friday against the Suns.
