DALLAS -- The severely undermanned Boston Celtics managed to stay in it early by doing what they do best -- not allowing many points. They don't score many either and with playmaker extraordinaire Rajon Rondo suspended, don't expect a lot of points.

Dirk Nowitzki has seven points and that vaulted him to No. 20 on the NBA's all-time scoring list. He also recorded his 1,000th career block.

The Celtics went 6-of-20 from the field, just better than Dallas' 9-of-24.

Brendan Haywood and Dominique Jones each have four points. Paul Pierce and Texas-ex Avery Bradley both have six points.
