The Celtics hit the All-Star break with a winning percentage slightly higher than their chief rival in the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat (Celtics at .741, Heat at .732).
The Celtics defeated the Nets, 94-80, last night in their final game before four of them head to Los Angeles for the All-Star Game. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen will go head-to-head in the 3-point shootout on Saturday, and they’ll be joined by Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett on the Eastern Conference squad on Sunday.
Above are highlights from last night’s win. We’ll have a Celtics All-Star trivia quiz for you on Friday, and look for photos and video from All-Star weekend to be posted over the next several days.
