Celtics regroup from loss, have way with Pistons in rout

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- For the second time in four nights, the Boston Celtics locked up a win by halftime.

Only problem is, those wins were against the Indiana Pacers and Monday against the Detroit Pistons, a 119-93 victory. Sandwiched in the middle was a head-shaker in Cleveland Sunday.

"After that miserable display yesterday, we had to come back strong," Rasheed Wallace said.

Altogether, the net result is probably somewhere below zero. Still, the two dominating wins were reminiscent of a time, much earlier in the season, when the Celtics were dispensing with the dredges of the league with flicks of their wrists.

"It's just fun to be a part of," Kendrick Perkins said. "It reminds you of a time when we were playing, I think, at our best."

It worth noting that it's been some time since anyone was having fun in the Celtics locker room. Now, they finally have a reason to. One day after getting gashed by the Cavaliers, it was the Celtics doing the pushing, and the sharing, dishing a season-high tying 34 assists on 46 made field goals.

"They were good, we were bad," Pistons coach John Kuester said. "They played an outstanding basketball game and we added to it."

With all the obvious disclaimers about the quality of opponent Boston was facing in the 23-44 Pistons, the Celtics also made them look much worse with one of their best offensive performances. With the Pistons on their heels for most of the game, the Celtics did whatever they wanted, shooting 62 percent and scoring 48 points in the paint.

"We have been talking and talking," Kevin Garnett said. "At some point trying to show some actions, so it's just what it is. I'll take it though, hands down night and day, as far as yesterday [in Cleveland] till today."

Offensively, Boston's greatest shortcoming has been the inconsistency from player to player. One night Garnett would put up an encouraging double-double, but Paul Pierce would score in single digits. Or Pierce would look unstoppable and Ray Allen would disappear on the perimeter.

On Monday, everyone was present and accounted for. Pierce scored 15 points, 12 in the first quarter on six shots, Garnett pulled down eight rebounds to go with 14 points, Allen hit a pair of 3s and shot 6-for-9 overall and Perkins bounced back with 11 points, eight boards and three blocks in 24 minutes. Among the starters, only Rondo didn't hit double digits in scoring, but he was perfectly content, and well served, to play the facilitator for most of the evening.

"Tonight, there was an air to us," Garnett said. "It was grimy, it was gritty."

Better yet, once-assumed bench warmer Michael Finley, acquired a week ago, devoured all the open looks his teammates earned him, scoring 15 points on seven shots in a mere 13 minutes. On this performance alone, the veteran has surpassed expectations.

"I didn't know what to expect, honestly," Rivers said. "He hadn't played a lot this year with San Antonio and he wasn't making shots. I just don't believe a guy can forget how to shoot. So we thought if we could get him in here and get him some looks . . . they would go in."

As strong of a win as it was, the Celtics were not all sunshine and rainbows afterwards. The sentiment being that time to gain positive momentum is already in very short supply.

"There's less than 20 games left, you got to start putting it together at some time," Perkins said.
