The Cavaliers led by as many as nine points in the quarter, many of which came on fast break plays. It seems, however, that every time they were able to pull ahead, the veteran Celtics climbed right back in it. Anderson Varejao has been crashing the boards on both ends, giving the Cavs a few second-chance points in the process. He leads Cleveland with six points. Sitting just behind him on the scoreboard is Mo Williams, who also logged three assists.
Paul Pierce had to take a seat on the bench with two quick fouls, and he didn't appear pleased to be sitting there. The other members of the big three contributed four points each. In other news, Rajon Rondo is fast. And he has been breezing by the Cleveland defense for 11 points. He singlehandedly accounts for over half of the Celtics' points, and leads all scorers.
