Celtics use luck of the Irish to dispose of Knicks

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- With the New York Knicks visiting on St. Patrick's Day, the Celtics wasted no time in gaining a double-digit lead within the first nine minutes and firmly slamming the door soon after that, winning 109-97.

"We tried to do the best," Danilo Gallinari said. They had a really good team and they played really good, and that's it."

"They were too big, too quick, too good," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said.

It was Boston's third dominating win in a six-day span that has also seen victories over the Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons. The combined records of the teams in those three wins: 69-135, good for a winning percentage of .338. At the very least, you can say that the Celtics are taking care of their home court.

"When we string wins together, it creates some momentum that's unspeakable," Kevin Garnett said. "When you're getting ready to go on a road trip you definitely got to take care of the games at home.

"Doc said [Sunday] after the Cleveland game that these wins and these games at home are very important. I don't think he could've stressed it more."

Looming on the horizon is a much tougher, and much more credible, test, as the Celtics will visit Houston, Dallas and Utah over four days, beginning Friday. Not that the previous wins are without value. Wednesday, the Celtics did something they haven't done once in 2010.

Inconsistencies have plagued Boston since January, and every player has been guilty of it, especially the stars. Against New York, Paul Pierce scored 29 points, passing the 20-point plateau for the second time in four games -- the first time he's done that since the last week of January. And for the first time since December 4, both he and Garnett scored 20 in the same game.

"I still know that they're not there yet, but they're getting closer," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "They're going to have their ups and downs. They're going to have a couple games where I'm going to have to answer: 'Are they done? Can they play anymore?' And then we're going to have nights like this, too."

Nights like this are, still, an aberration. With such a potent starting five, one or two of the guys scoring in single digits could, at first glance, be chalked up to balanced scoring. But too often, the guys that weren't being aggressive were the ones that needed to be. The Celtics would need an elbow jumper from Pierce, who would pass it off, or the paint would be wide open for Rajon Rondo, who would swing the ball around the perimeter. But in these last three wins, offensive depth has been a much more suitable explanation for the balances and imbalances in scoring -- along with the opposition not being exactly capable on the defensive end.

"Different defenses, difference schemes on nights are going to allow certain players to have certain nights like this," Garnett said. "As long as we're productive with what we're doing on the defensive end, then in terms of offense we care less with who is doing what."

In those three wins, the Celtics are giving up 99.9 points per 100 possessions. On the season, the Celtics lead the league, allowing 102.3 points per 100 possessions. Safe to say, the Celtics have been productive on the defensive end.
