Boston Celtics: Elias Sports Bureau
According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Celtics' largest deficit in any game this season was 14 points (during an 89-87 loss to Dallas on Nov. 8). The only other NBA team that hasn't trailed by as many as 15 points this season is the Mavericks (Dallas trailed the Nuggets by a season-high 13 points in a 103-92 loss).
The Celtics spotted Orlando a 13-point lead to stat Saturday's game, but still rallied ahead (leading by as much as 12 later in the game).
1. Rondo is shooting only 20.8 percent from 3-point range this season (15 for 72). Only one player in the league that has attempted at least 60 shots from beyond the arc has a lower percentage than Rondo: Dallas' DeShawn Stevenson (.177).
3. James has scored 20+ points in each of his last seven regular-season games played at the TD Garden. That is the longest current streak of 20+ games in this arena.
5. Ray Allen is shooting 90.6 percent from the free throw line this season. Allen is on pace to convert 90 percent of his free throw attempts in a season for the eighth time in his career. Only one player in NBA history has shot 90 percent or better from the line with at least 150 attempts in eight different seasons: Reggie Miller (eight).
