It was a game that marked a point of no return for the Celtics, and they played accordingly. With vintage dominant defense for four quarters, the Celtics held the Pacers to an incredibly low 31.8 percent shooting from the floor.
Rajon Rondo was active and aggressive with the ball. Jared Sullinger played like a 10-year veteran on both ends of the court.
The Celtics thoroughly dominated Indiana in a particularly important basketball game.
