KG's return is a cold night for Ray Allen, but turned into an OT win for the C's as they knock off Portland 98-95.
Boston was up 5 at the half scoring 55 points total and by the third quarter the difference remained the same despite Ray Allens (3-14) shooting woes. Ray even missed 2 technical FT's and I would like to see the stats on when the last time that happened. Pierce led Boston with 24 points. Followed by Rondo with 19 and Sheed off the bench for 14.
Both teams were able to exploit weaknesses in the other and it looked as though Boston could give up another close game when Pierce was called for charging with just over a second to go. However, Portland was unable to inbound and had to use a timeout. They failed to score on the second inbound attempt which forced OT.
Ray eventually hit a crucial and timely J which gave Boston the lead for good. In regards to KG's returning to the lineup, he seemed to struggle with his timing, speed, and explosiveness, but had 13 points and 4 boards nonetheless.
