Celtics push winning streak to eight games

BOSTON - (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Boston Celtics stretched their winning streak to eight, defeating the Milwaukee Bucks, 98-89, Tuesday night in a game that was more competitive than many would have expected.

As the saying goes, the Bucks never said die, answering any significant Boston gains on the momentum scale quietly and consistently. Following an 8-2 Celtics fourth-quarter run which culminated in a pair of ghastly misses from Carlos Delfino, Brandon Jennings led his team back to an 86-86 tie with 4:51 to play.

After that, Boston pulled away because they could get stops and the Bucks' defense didn't have that word in its vocabulary, allowing 52 percent shooting.

"Everytime we got close we hurt ourselves," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "It's a great club and we were able to hang in there [but] we still had way too many busted coverages and kind of let them go wherever they wanted to."

But an expected Celtics victory at home is hardly as noteworthy -- now that the season has found its groove 20 games in -- as the 9-11 Bucks threatening until the final minutes behind the strength of a plus-nine rebounding margin and 14 offensive boards.

The rebounding troubles are nothing new for Boston, which has dropped to the league average in defensive rebounding percentage and second to last in rebounds per game.

Not that the team is lacking in accountability.

"We've always been a good rebounding team over the years," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "Right now we're not."

"It's a problem with the guards," Pierce said, "we have to do a better job at coming back and helping the bigs especially on long rebounds."

Kevin Garnett (25 points) did his part, grabbing nine boards as he continued his rejuvenated play that has coincided with Boston's streak. But it was a Milwaukee big that had the greatest impact on the game: Andrew Bogut.

Seven turnovers aside, Bogut's 25 points and 14 boards almost single handedly won the battles in the paint and on the boards, laying a solid foundation for Milwaukee's performance.

"He's a bear to guard," Rivers said. "We allowed him to set up shop a little too much. If you let a good big set up shop, he's going to score on you every time."

The Brandon Jennings hype train hit a temporary roadblock, as Jennings sat on the bench, without foul trouble, for much of the third after a 4-for-12 first half. After removing the rookie point guard three minutes into the quarter, Skiles didn't appear to be in any rush to get Jennings back on the court until Luke Ridnour was injured with 3:23 to go.

For a while then it had appeared the Bucks had run into the Boston third-quarter buzzsaw, but then Bucks ran off a 10-2 run upon Jennings' return to tie the game at the end of the period.

Milwaukee played as close a first half as any opponent had at TD Garden, taking a one-point lead at the end of the first and going into the break down by the same margin. Bogut paced the Bucks with 12 first quarter points, but the Celtics sliced their way through any attempts at defense, shooting 58 percent and earning 16 free throws.

The freebies of the game took place at that 86-86 tie in the fourth quarter, when Rajon Rondo -- dominant with 11 points, 13 assists and nine boards -- hit two in a row to give Boston the permanent lead. Rondo's seven attempts at the line were his third-most of the season, and his five makes were second-most, important numbers for a player who had been shooting 40 percent.

"Tonight was the first time I saw "hack-a-Rondo," Rivers said. "The one thing about Rondo, and this is why you know the shots will go in eventually, is because he does believe they're going in.

"It's really important for your point guard to make free throws. And he's going to do that. He's starting to now."
