Garnett returns to form in win over Heat

MIAMI (NBA.com exclusive) -- Boston forward Kevin Garnett seems to be well on his way back to the terror he was before the knee injury that forced him to miss last season's playoffs. And the rest of his teammates are still pretty darn good, too.

The Celtics showed all that and more in Sunday's 92-85 victory over Miami at AmericanAirlines Arena. Boston, which now has a four-game win streak and improved to 13-4, had all five starters score in double figures, led by Garnett's 24 points, and limited Miami to just 41.8 percent shooting.

Garnett, who also had eight rebounds in Sunday's victory, is now averaging 14.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. That's not near his career averages of 20.1 points and 11.0 rebounds per game, but his last few games are a step in the right direction.

"He was big for us, especially defensively," said Boston forward Paul Pierce, who ended with 15 points. "He was really aggressive on the offensive end. He's starting to get a lot of his lift back."

The key for both teams, however, might have been the Celtics' game-ending 14-3 run over the final 4:27. It was a great example of how the veteran grit of Boston kicks in to win a tough road game.

"That says a lot about our team," said guard Rajon Rondo, who posted a double-double with 13 points and 11 assists.

Miami (9-7), which has lost six of its last nine games, was led by All-Star guard Dwyane Wade, who ended with a game-high 27 points. But Wade was just 1-for-5 for four points in the decisive fourth quarter. It was yet another example of how Miami lives and dies with Wade.

"We were right there," Wade said. "The seasoned team, the veteran team made the shots they had to make. We didn't make them. We got good shots, we just didn't make them. We can take a lot of good things out off this."

Heat forward Michael Beasley (18 points) had a fourth-quarter stretch in which he scored 11 consecutive points, in the process giving his team a 76-72 lead, its first advantage since the second quarter.

"I was just being aggressive," said Beasley, who also added seven rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot. "Dwyane was on the bench so I think they saw it as an opportunity to go up on us. I just didn't want that to happen."

However, Beasley's heroics, accomplished largely against center Kendrick Perkins (14 points, 13 rebounds), were cut short by Garnett's defense once Garnett re-entered the game.

And Miami's heroic comeback attempt was cut short, in part, by center Jermaine O'Neal missing three of four free throws in the final 2:30. Although the rejuvenated O'Neal had his third consecutive double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds, he missed his last two free throws with Miami trailing, 89-85, with 1:09 left.

The victory was a great way for Boston to start a four-game road trip that includes games at Charlotte, San Antonio and Oklahoma City.

"This is a win we needed to start this road trip off," Boston coach Doc Rivers said.

Notes: The league announced Boston forward Rasheed Wallace will be fined $30,000 for comment he made after Friday's Toronto game. Wallace said he'll appeal. "I'm going to fight that one, for sure," he said. "I ain't talk about no refs. I didn't name no players."...Heat guard Dwyane Wade made his 3,605th field goal in the third quarter, becoming Miami's all-time leader, surpassing Glen Rice (3,604 field goals made). Wade also grabbed his 2,000th career rebound...Boston guard Tony Allen (off-season ankle surgery) is likely to miss the remaining games of this road trip (Charlotte, San Antonio and Oklahoma City). There was hope Allen would be ready at some point on this current swing...Heat forward Quentin Richardson, who missed the last 4 1/2 games due to back spasms, returned Sunday, but he didn't start. That job remained with James Jones.
