The Boston Celtics won their fifth straight in a back-and-forth battle—staying undefeated since Rajon Rondo suffered a season-ending knee injury—by defeating the Toronto Raptors by a score of 99-95 Wednesday.
Things got dicey for Boston in the second half when Kevin Garnett picked up his fourth foul midway through the third quarter. He was everything Boston needed, and more, scoring a season-high 27 points. The result of him sitting on the bench was a 17-4 Toronto run and a 10-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter.
When Garnett re-entered the game at the start of the fourth, Boston immediately went on a 9-0 run, eventually tying the game before wrestling away the lead for good.
