Celts cruise to win in San Antonio

Boston went into San Antonio and showed exactly why it has a good chance to make it back to The Finals this summer. Kevin Garnett was big again with 20 points, seven boards and five assists, and the Celts used their trademark defense to force 18 SA turnovers and hold the Spurs to 42 percent shooting in the 90-83 win.

Someone should keep track of how many balls this team deflects on the defensive end — they’re long enough to get any team out of its comfort zone. Eight blocks tonight, too, and four of them came from recent addition Rasheed Wallace (also 13 points).

In other action, Denver cruised despite a little K-Mart blowup/ejection, and Golden State lost a chance to tie or win the game against Houston when Monta Ellis decided to try and make a last-second move without dribbling.

Last thought of the night: DeJuan Blair, 18 points and 11 boards for San Antonio. Another slick draft steal from Popovich and Co.
