‘The Truth’ Paul Pierce scored 17 of his 24 points in the third quarter to lead the Boston Celtics to their ninth straight win, 107-88 over the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
Ray Allen added 21 points, Rajon Rondo had 16 points with 12 assists and KG scored 15 points for the Celts (17-2) in a win over a top Eastern Conference rival.
Rashard ‘Dagger’ Lewis paced Orlando (13-5) with 30 points. Hedo Turkoglu had 19 and Dwight ‘Superman’ Howard, had 14 points with 15 boards and four blocked shots.
The Philadelphia 76ers and restricted free agent Andre Iguodala have agreed to a six-year, $80 million contract, league sources tell ESPN.com.
FINALLY. The last piece to the puzzle has been inked and the Sixers are looking to have a very dominant starting squad to throw out on the court next season. $80 mil was a tad high in my mind in terms of salary for a player like Iggy, but he did average 20/5/5/2 steals last season with NO help and has only missed 6 games in his first four seasons. He continues to improve every season and he now has some established running mates along side of him. I’d much rather give the money to someone like Andre then see Stefanski blow it elsewhere (i.e. Erick Dampier $65 mill, Adonal Foyle $55 mill or even Rashard Lewis $118 mill).
