Well, this was unexpected.
The Celtics built a 22-point lead with 3:55 left in the second quarter and kept the lead basically the same for the rest of the half.
Rajon Rondo was a mini-Jason Kidd for the Celtics in the first half, garnering four points, six rebounds, and six assists in the period.
Brian Scalabrine is leading the team at halftime with 14 points. Scalabrine hit four three-pointers in the first half. Injured Celtics guard Tony Allen stood and clapped after Scalabrine hit the third. Injured forward Wally Szczerbiak, who is also in the house, did not.
