Stat stuffer Rajon Rondo and the Celtics were out for payback in the 2nd game of a home-and-home against the Sixers on Saturday night. Kevin Garnett led the way for Boston with a team high 19 points as the Celtics held the 76ers to a season low 28 1st half points, but Philadelphia refused to go quietly in this Atlantic East contest. Thaddeus Young was the high scorer for the Sixers with 22 points, but Philly couldn't handle Boston's versatile bigs as Jeff Green chipped in with 16 points of his own off the bench. The Celtics bounced back for the 92-79 win as they handed the 76ers their 3rd loss in 4 games.
