Celtics Hold Off 76ers, 113-103

The Celtics break open a tight game in the fourth quarter to beat the 76ers 113-103.

Eddie House and James Posey sank big 3-pointers that let the NBA-best Celtics remain undefeated in the Atlantic Division. House and Posey went 7-for-13 on 3s and that was the difference late in the game.

Boston's big three had their usual strong performances. Kevin Garnett scored 22 points, Paul Pierce had 19 points and 12 assists and Ray Allen scored 12 points.

The Sixers gave an inspired effort in their first game with Ed Stefanski as president and general manager since the firing on Monday of Billy King.

Andre Miller kept the Sixers alive until the fourth with his first double-double of the season, a 26-point, 12-assist effort. Andre Iguodala scored 24 points.
