Pistons-Celtics notebook

THE FACTS: Tracy McGrady scored a season-high 21 points as the Detroit Pistons defeated the injured-depleted Boston Celtics Wednesday night, 104-92. Already playing without point guard Rajon Rondo, the Celtics lost Kevin Garnett with 2:31 remaining in the first quarter with what was diagnosed as a muscle injury to his lower right leg. X-rays were negative but Garnett, who was injured without contact after a dunk, will have an MRI when the team returns to Boston.

QUOTABLE: "This list is getting really long. I don't think anyone is going to feel bad for us. I've just got that feeling. So, we're going to have to do something about it and go out and try to still win games."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers on his club's injury problems.

THE STAT: 21. The Celtics were blindsided by the Pistons' usually porous defense, committing a season-high 21 turnovers that led to 25 Detroit points. Boston had eight in the first quarter as the Pistons jumped to an 11-point lead. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce combined for 11 of Boston's giveaways. Its previous season high was 20 during the season opener against Miami.

TURNING POINT: Fueled by center Ben Wallace, the Pistons scored 10 unanswered points to take a 63-47 lead with 5:23 remaining in the third quarter. Wallace found Charlie Villanueva and Tayshaun Prince open on the perimeter with kickout passes for 3-pointers on consecutive possessions. He finished off the outburst with a fast-break dunk after a McGrady steal and assist.

QUOTABLE II: "You can't beat this team with one or two guys. You've got to spread the wealth around and that's what we did tonight. We had a great effort from everybody."
-- McGrady on the Pistons' balanced attack, which included six double-digit scorers.

HOT: Paul Pierce tried to carry the Celtics' offense when Garnett left the floor, scoring a season-high 33 points. He had 24 in the second half but no one else stepped forward, as the next highest scorers were Allen and Glen Davis with 12 apiece.

NOT: Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal was throttled by Wallace defensively, contributing just five points and one rebound in 16 minutes. O'Neal has scored just 16 points in the last three games.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Pistons reserve center Chris Wilcox has earned more playing time with his second straight strong outing. He had 10 points, a team-high eight rebounds and three steals in 27 minutes. Wilcox contributed a season-high 15 points and eight rebounds against Charlotte Monday.

GOOD MOVE: With starting point guard Rodney Stuckey sidelined by a stomach virus, Pistons head coach John Kuester opted to start McGrady at the point instead of a backup guard Will Bynum. Not only did McGrady score a season high, he ran an offensive attack that shot 55.7 percent, a season high by a Celtics opponent. McGrady made eight of Detroit's 27 assists.

BAD MOVE: Rivers picked up a technical foul 21 seconds into the fourth quarter after the Pistons' Wilcox was called for a personal foul. That handed the Pistons an easy point when Richard Hamilton made the free throw and Pierce committed a turnover 16 seconds later.

NOTABLE: Boston had won 15 of its previous 16 games. ... The Pistons made 10 of 15 3-point attempts. ... Pistons reserve forward Austin Daye scored all of his 12 points in the second quarter. ... Celtics backup center Semih Erden did not dress because of an upper respiratory infection. ...

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Friday vs. New Orleans, Sunday @ Toronto, Monday vs. Minnesota. For the Pistons, Friday @ Phoenix, Monday @ Utah, Tuesday @ L.A. Lakers.
