C's tie franchise first-half low (25 points)

The Boston Celtics matched a franchise low by scoring only 25 points in the first half of Friday's tilt with the Indiana Pacers.

The Celtics, who were a mere 9-of-34 shooting overall (26.5 percent) in the first half, trailed by eight at the intermission against the Pacers. The 25 points matched a first-half franchise low set Feb. 8, 1995 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Celtics rallied that night, erupting for 50 second-half points en route to a 75-67 triumph.

Boston also mustered a mere 25 points in the second half of two games against Milwaukee (March 18, 1999 and Feb. 27, 1955).
