The Denver Nuggets handed the Celtics their second loss of the season in Boston back in Novemeber. So the C’s came out with an objective, blow the Nuggets out in their house, so they did. The C’s won their second straight without KG in Denver, 114- 76 . Rajon Rondo posted a near triple double (14 pts, 8 assists, 8 reb), while Paul Pierce (22 pts, 6 reb) and Ray Allen (26 pts, 6 reb) exposed the Nuggets defense. J.R. Giddens scored his first NBA hoop in this game as we got a good look at the Celtics bench for the better half of the fourth quarter. The C’s played great defense in this game holding Denver to 76 pts and 34.7% from the floor. Boston is now 5-0 without Garnett this season and posted two convincing victories in a row. Scal, while filling in for Garnett, left the game in the second with a cervical sprain. There are no new updates on Scalabrine’s condition, but I would not be surprised if he sits out the next game given his recent head injuries.
