Celtics can't complete comeback, Raptors win 99-90
Rondo was well on his way to a 20 assist game before he had to get 9 stitches. The Celtics couldn't stop the three(Raptors 11-23),and the Raptors ran passed the Celtics, 99-90.
Jared Sullinger nearly willed his team to a win on Wednesday night. Sullinger had 19 points in the fourth quarter but Toronto hit clutch shots in the final minutes to put Boston away for good.
Sullinger ended the contest with a game-high 26 points to go with a team-high eight boards. Rajon Rondo finished with nine points and a game-high 15 assists.
Avery Bradley added 16 points (but was a minus-22 overall in plus/minus over 37 minutes), while Chris Johnson provided needed energy off the bench while scoring 13 points over 26 minutes. The Celtics turned the ball over just 10 times, but couldn't fully capitalize on Toronto's 17 giveaways. Stay tuned for more tonight and tomorrow.
