Celtics' D too much for Magic as Boston takes 2-0 lead

ORLANDO (NBA.com exclusive) -- Until Sunday, the Orlando Magic had gone 44 days without losing a game.

Now, courtesy of the Boston Celtics, it has become a habit.

Paul Pierce scored 28 points, Rajon Rondo added 25 points and eight assists and the Celtics won, 95-92, Tuesday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Boston took Rashard Lewis and Jameer Nelson out of the Orlando offense and held the Magic to 39 percent shooting on their home floor.

"We are doing it with guts and pure grit," said Kevin Garnett, who did most of the defensive work on Lewis. "We are playing defense for 48 minutes."

It was the fifth straight playoff victory for the Celtics, and it marks the first time the Magic have lost two straight at home since Games 4 and 5 of the NBA Finals last June.

"All year long we've been a great road team, doesn't matter what building we go in," said Pierce. "We've been in all types of environments as a unit, being together three years. There's really nothing that fazes us going out on the road because we expect hostile environments."

Dwight Howard scored a game-high 30 points for the Magic, and Vince Carter and J.J. Redick added points 16 each. But the Magic went almost seven minutes between field goals in the third quarter.

After sweeping through the first two rounds of the playoffs, the Magic must now win a game in Boston, either Saturday or Monday, just to stay alive.

"We've beaten them on their floor before, now we have to do it again," said Lewis, who scored five points in 41 minutes. "This year, overall, they've been a better team on the road than they have been at home. Hopefully they'll be that way in the playoffs."

The Celtics ran out of gas temporarily early in the fourth quarter and almost ran out of players, with Kendrick Perkins, Rasheed Wallace and Pierce getting into serious foul trouble. Perkins and Pierce eventually fouled out.

The Celtics were called for 29 personal fouls and the Magic 25.

"It was a great game intensity-wise, a game of runs," said Boston coach Doc Rivers. "They brought the fight to us in a lot of ways, and I thought we withstood the hits.

"That's something you've got to keep doing, and I thought we did that."

After coming back to take a one-point lead late in the fourth quarter, the Magic came up empty again. A jumper by Garnett regained the lead permanently for Boston, and Rondo made it 93-90 by hitting an open jumper at 2:01.

With the Celtics leading, 95-92, with 31.9 seconds left, Carter missed two straight free throws.

"Our shot selection was terrible and we didn't play smart enough and we didn't sustain what worked offensively," said Magic coach Stan Van Gundy.

With Pierce scoring their first nine points, the Celtics got off to another good start.

Pierce's second 3-pointer gave them a 23-12 lead, but he sat down with his second foul a minute later during a 16-2 Magic run completed by back-to-back 3-pointers from Redick.

The Celtics regained control in a second quarter that included a flagrant foul on Howard and his third personal foul -- for throwing an elbow on the offensive end -- with 2:02 left in the half.

"I told my coaches I would know who we were at halftime," Rivers said. "I didn't know if we were going to win the game or not, but I knew we would be in it. You could see we had great focus."

The Magic's offense disappeared in the third quarter for an even longer stretch than in the first half of Game 1, when the Celtics had shut them out for nearly six minutes.

Two free throws by Carter left the Magic with a 59-57 lead at the 9:43 mark of the third quarter, but the only point they managed over the next 6:19 came on a Redick free throw resulting from a defensive three-seconds call.

By the time Nelson finally nailed a 3-pointer, Boston had moved out to a 10-point lead.

Redick and Howard led an Orlando charge in the fourth quarter as Wallace, Perkins and Pierce fell deeper into foul trouble.

Carter's jumper pulled the Magic into a 90-89 lead with 3:35 left. But a layup by Nelson was all the Magic could score after that.

"This series is not over," said Howard, who shot 17 of Orlando's 38 free throws. "I won't stop believing that and I won't let my teammates believe it. We're going to keep fighting and we're going to do it."
