Pierce bounces back as Celtics smash Bobcats

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- For perhaps the first time in 2010, the Boston Celtics played a complete 48 minutes of good basketball. They earned themselves and early lead and held it, leaving little to the fates in breezing by the Charlotte Bobcats 104-80.

As ordinary as that sounds, it's been anything but the past two months.

"We haven't had a game like this in awhile," Paul Pierce said.

Awhile is an understatement. The last time the Celtics won by double digits at TD Garden was December 20.

There was brief cause for panic, as a 17-point lead in the second quarter eroded as the Bobcats pulled within one on the strength of 16 straight points in the paint. Once again, it looked as though the Celtics had lost their mojo, just as they had done time and time again in becoming the league leader in blown leads. But, the temporary lack of interior defense aside, this sequence was more of a function of basketball.

"Teams are going to make runs," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "All you need to do is watch every NBA game. Teams make runs and then hopefully you respond and make another run."

That's been Boston's problem: the lack of responses. But Wednesday, they went out in the second half and outscored Charlotte 50-35 in the second half.

Two things stood out for the Celtics as changes from the patterns of previous contests. The first was the existence of something resembling the Boston defense of the championship run after the break. After suffering a number of their own third and fourth quarters scoring in the teens, the Celtics held the Bobcats to 16 third-quarter points, 8-of-25 shooting in the paint and 28.6 percent shooting overall.

"I don't think anyone could have played in that environment," Bobcats coach Larry Brown said. "We played hard but there were too many obstacles. A lot of mountains to climb tonight."

In the same vein as the first factor, the Celtics benefited from the presence of Pierce sans kneepads and thumb problems. Pierce had only scored more than 18 points once since January 25, and hadn't played since February 21 until returning Tuesday to shoot 2-for-6. On Wednesday, he led the team with 27 points on 9-of-13 shooting.

For the second consecutive game, Nate Robinson was the definition of a spark off the bench. After providing four triples and 14 points in a road win against the Detroit Pistons the night before, Robinson scored 16 points on eight shots, hitting a buzzer-beater at the end of the first quarter to give the Celtics a 10-point lead.

"Nate is pure energy," Kevin Garnett said. "He's good energy. He's almost like fresh air. He fits right in with this team."

Robinson's second great performance led the Boston bench's second game-changing run, as the subs put up 46 points one day after posting 39 in Detroit. It's a group that has held itself accountable after the deplorable loss to the New Jersey Nets last Saturday.

"The last loss at home against New Jersey, guys told themselves that we need to come out here and not blame nobody for our losses and inconsistency," Tony Allen said. "We could just do whatever we could do personally to try to come out and get the win. Everybody is just trying to get on the same page."

Wins against the Pistons and Bobcats aren't exactly going to erase the unusual brand of futility the Celtics have displayed the past two months, but, at the very least, you can now say everyone on this team is in the same book.

"With all the stuff going on tonight, I don't think there's any team that could have won this game," Stephen Jackson said. "Winning by 30 is definitely a way to show that you have a lot to prove. They're trying to get back to being a championship caliber team, and they played like it tonight."
