Jae Crowder got the Celtics off to a quick start with 10 points in the first quarter to finish with 18 points for the game. Avery Bradley led the Celtics with 23 points, and Gerald Green scored 14.

One of the most freakish plays imaginable occurred in the top of the sixth when Rangers' DH Nomar Mazara hit a routine fly ball to Ryan Goins at short, who dropped it. Hill had 16 in September 2009.
