The Celtics finished their final regular season game in an ugly way, getting beat by the Raptors 114-90.
Jordan Crawford finished with a team high 16 points, 6-14 from the field along with 6 boards and 5 assists. The team gave up 22 points at the line on 28 attempts, with the Raptors making 12 3’s at nearly 50%.
Pierce only played only 14 minutes, he was out for the second half due to a sore left ankle. The captain scored 5-7, 1-2 from 3 for 11 points.
The C’s finish with a 41-40 record this season, as they only played 81 games due to the cancellation of the Pacers-Celtics game. They will head to New York for the first round series against the New York Knicks. Our guys should be at full strength, excluding Rajon Rondo (ACL) and Jared Sullinger (back).
