Celtics grab win in potential first round matchup preview

MILWAUKEE (NBA.com exclusive) -- As far as standings and playoff positioning go, there really wasn't much at stake for either the Boston Celtics or Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.

But add in the fact that it's a strong possibility that the two teams might meet in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, and one can understand the increased intensity -- and chippiness -- that occurred in the fourth quarter of Boston's 105-90 victory at the Bradley Center.

Paul Pierce scored 18 of his 24 points in the second half, and Ray Allen had 10 of his 21 in the fourth quarter as the Celtics improved to 50-30 by going into the Bucks' home arena and winning despite star forward Kevin Garnett being given a night of rest by coach Glenn "Doc" Rivers.

The Bucks, who were led by John Salmons' 21 points and 19 from Brandon Jennings, fell to 45-35 and had their four-game winning streak snapped.

The Celtics pulled away in a fourth quarter that got both intense and chippy. Milwaukee's Kurt Thomas was assessed a flagrant 1 foul with 2:35 left when he took down Glenn Davis in the lane. Davis got up and into Thomas' face, earning himself a technical foul.

On the ensuing inbounds play, Milwaukee's Jerry Stackhouse and Pierce got tangled up, earning both a technical foul and Stackhouse a personal foul.

At that point, Bucks coach Scott Skiles had seen enough and earned two technical fouls and an ejection when he shared his opinions with referee Curtis Blair.

"I thought maybe a little bit of both," Rivers said when asked if it was intensity or chippiness. "I thought the refs did a nice job. They were just trying to keep it clean.

"There were some tempers. When guys know there's a chance you're going to play each other, no one wants to give any ground. It was one of those 'Marking their spot,' kind of games. You could see both teams doing that a little bit."

For the Celtics, the victory helped remove the taste of a disappointing home loss to lowly Washington the night before.

More important, the Celtics also saw Pierce reclaim some offensive rhythm, something Rivers indicated he was hoping to see before the game.

The Celtics built an 82-72 lead, only to have the Bucks crawl within 82-76 on a jumper and two free throws by Stackhouse.

At that point, Pierce kept offsetting Milwaukee scores with three straight jumpers of his own.

Pierce's third jumper in that stretch gave the Celtics an 88-81 lead with 3:32 left, and the next points in the game came on free throws off the Davis-Thomas scrum.

Allen's free throws from the Skiles technical fouls made it 92-82, and the Celtics pulled away from there.

But it all started with Pierce's sharp shooting.

"That was big for us," Rivers said. "He's not done that, really, and that's why we're still playing him. We talked about that before the game, of just trying to get Paul some rhythm, because if he can get his offensive rhythm that makes us really good."

Pierce said his second-half breakout came simply because he finally read what Milwaukee's defense was doing.

"In the third quarter, we were able to spread the court a little bit and I found some space," Pierce said. "Once I figured out what they were doing in the first half ... I noticed that when I drove the ball they were really collapsing on me, so I just stopped short for my little pull-up jumper because that was open.

"It's just one of those things you read. I missed four or five shots at the rim because I was going up against two or three defenders, so I just decided to stop short and found some open space."

The first half seemed void of intensity and shooting. Milwaukee shot just 38.5 percent (15 for 39), but led most of the half until Pierce's layup with 1.2 seconds left gave Boston a 41-40 lead at the break.

The Celtics were even worse at 36.1 percent (13 for 36), but Pierce helped change that in the second half by going 7 for 9 as Boston shot 56.4 percent (22 for 39) after the break.

"With about four minutes to go in the second quarter they started getting really physical with us -- setting screens, getting to the basket and rebounding positions -- and we didn't respond really well to that," Skiles said. "They took a little momentum there."

Things only got worse for the Bucks in the second half, before the game completely got away from them.

"Just because there might be some technicals and I get tossed out of a game doesn't necessarily mean there was a lot of intensity," Skiles said. "Having that that, there was in pockets of the game for sure.

"I felt like we didn't play well, but we played hard. We can't give up 64 points in a half like in the second half, and allow them to shoot such a good percentage and expect to win the game."
