Celtics Outgun Pacers (7-4)

A festive Indiana crowd took in a competitive bout between the visiting Celtics and hometown Pacers, the former of which prevailed with a dominant if not diligent victory as they return home for their next game against the Warriors.

Paul Pierce comfortably took the floor and rattled in 20 points, spacing the floor and knocking down 3's, as the solid play making abilities of Rajon Rondo shined in front of the wooed Indiana audience, the ball dishing out in all directions, resulting in double figures in scoring across the board, from KG to Millsap and plenty of 3's from Jason Terry. Taking a note from Terry, Derek Fisher debuted in his former rival's colors of green, white and black, rainbowing in 10 points, sparking Boston's tenacious energy tonight by nailing his first 3 point attempt as part of the Celtics roster.

Despite a resilient effort by Indiana as encouraged by their supportive fans, the Celtics pulled away for a 93-84 victory, outlasting a strong effort by Danny Granger (25 points) and the on-the-rise Pacers squad.
