NBA Playoffs 2012, 76ers Vs. Celtics Game 6: Boston Holds Slim 36-33 Halftime Lead

You can shuffle out Allen Iverson to hand out the game ball to Joey Crawford. You can boo Kevin Garnett every time he touches the ball, too. Neither is affecting the Boston Celtics right now, as they lead the Philadelphia 76ers 36-33 at the half.

Sure, the game itself is a lesson in how not to run a prolific offense, but as an elimination game, it's all about winning or going home.

The Celtics, who held Philly to just 11 second-quarter points, continue to limit the production of a starless 76ers team that features eight players who have logged a basket, but zero who have scored in double figures. Paul Pierce leads all players with 11 points on 3-of-5 shooting.

Somehow, that looks pretty solid given the struggles both teams have had with the ball in their hand tonight.

Jrue Holiday leads his team with eight points.
