The Boston Celtics beat the Toronto Raptors, for the 2nd time in just over a week, 114-107 Sunday afternoon. They were still without Kevin Garnett who will probably be out for a great deal of time. But the team stepped up and put up some really good offensive numbers.

Rasheed Wallace led the Celtics with 29 points, the most he has ever scored as a member of the Celtics. Rajon Rondo recorded a triple-double, only the third of his career (excluding the playoffs), by scoring 22 points with 10 rebounds and 13 assists. Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kendrick Perkins all added 16 points of their own..

Chris Bosh was the leading scorer with 31 points and 13 rebounds, along with an amazing dunk over Perkins. Andrea Bargnani added 23 points and Marco Belinelli came off the bench with 14 points.

Kendrick Perkins woes continue at the free-throw line in which he was only 4 of 10, while on the other end Chris Bosh was 13 of 13. Rajon Rondo recorded his 1st triple-double of the season and just continues to impress with each game that passes. Another interesting note is that the Celtics led for the entire game with help to their nice 10-0 run to start it.

The Celtics (26-9) will try to get revenge at home against the Atlanta Hawks (23-13) tomorrow night.
