Cellts Take Win Away From T'Wolves, 87-86

Despite claims otherwise from both sides, this was not just another game. When the Timberwolves and Celtics got together at the TD Banknorth Garden on Friday night for their first regular season matchup since this blockbuster trade, emotions were running high, and the excitement ran higher as Boston edged Minnesota 87-86.

Kendrick Perkins led the way with 21 points, including the eventual game-winning layup with 16.6 seconds left, but KG (10 points, 16 rebounds) survived a brief abdominal injury scare, and according to Doc Rivers "begged" his way back onto the floor in the final minutes before coming up with the final defensive stop against Sebastian Telfair to seal the win. -

The Celtics improved their record to 34-7
