Notebook: Celtics 118, Pistons 111


Brian Robb, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Mar 10, 2014 12:03 AM - Updated Mon Mar 10, 2014 12:03 AM

THE FACT: Rajon Rondo moved into fifth place for most assists in Celtics history, posting his 4,101th in the closing moments of the fourth quarter to pass Bill Russell in franchise history.

THE LEAD: Jeff Green scored a game-high 27 points, leading a strong offensive performance for the Boston Celtics as they defeated the Detroit Pistons 118-111 at TD Garden. Rondo added 11 points and a season-best 18 assists, as the hosts played an unselfish brand of basketball (season-high 38 assists) that helped give Boston its second straight win. Josh Smith had a team-high 26 points for the Pistons and Andre Drummond finished with 18 points and 22 rebounds, but it wasn't enough for Detroit, which lost its third straight.

QUOTABLE: "It is unbelievable you can really see [Rondo] starting to excel even more. He was great when he came back but now he is taking it to a whole other level."
-- Boston's Kelly Olynyk

THE STAT: After turning the ball over a season-high 28 times against the Brooklyn Nets Friday night, the Celtics turned the tables on Sunday. Boston took great care of the ball against Detroit, committing just three turnovers over the first 36 minutes of the game. Boston tied a season-low with just seven turnovers on the night.

TURNING POINT: 3-point shooting was the difference for the Celtics in the third quarter. The Celtics drilled three consecutive 3-pointers in just 68 seconds midway through the period, which gave the hosts a game-high 17-point lead. The Pistons were unable to recover from that deficit over the rest of the contest.

QUOTABLE II: "We always tell each other how surreal a moment that would be to reconnect in that realm but with the different free agencies that we both have, it could be far-fetched. But it could be possible too."
-- Josh Smith on potentially playing with his good friend Rondo during their NBA careers

HOT: Green -- The athletic swingman could not be contained in the third period, as Green put on a show, scoring 14 of his 27 points in the frame, including four 3-pointers.

NOT: Brandon Bass -- Boston's starting power forward did not do much with his limited opportunities against the Pistons, hitting just two of his eight shots on the night to finish with five points, six below his season average.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Smith -- After two straight weeks of tough performances for Smith, the power forward bounced back Sunday and posted his 12th double-double of the season, finishing with 26 points and 11 rebounds for the Pistons in the setback.

ROOKIE WATCH: Kelly Olynyk -- The seven-footer out of Gonzaga is quickly becoming one of Brad Stevens' most reliable scoring options off the bench. Olynyk played well off the bench yet again, delivering his third consecutive game scoring in double-digits. Over those three contests, Olynyk's been incredibly efficient, scoring 50 points in a mere 62 minutes of action.

NOTABLE: Avery Bradley is targeting a Friday return to the floor for the Celtics. He's missed 16 of the team's last 19 games with a right ankle injury. ... Andre Drummond became just the ninth player in TD Garden history to finish with 20 or more rebounds. Drummond's 22 rebounds fell just two short of Kevin Love's 24 rebounds in January 2011, which is the all-time record for rebounds at the TD Garden. ...The Celtics' bench outscored the Pistons' bench 40-21. ...Boston improved to 8-0 in games it scores 106 or more points. ...Rondo posted 18 assists and zero turnovers, the first player to do that in a regular season game since Steve Nash in 2007.

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Tuesday @ Indiana, Wednesday vs. New York, Friday vs. Phoenix. For the Pistons, Tuesday vs. Sacramento, Wednesday @ Toronto, Saturday vs. Indiana.
