GAME RECAP

Dana Barros scored 12 of his season-high 29 points in the fourth quarter as the Boston Celtics held on for a 114-105 victory over the equally shorthanded Vancouver Grizzlies.

The game pitted two teams down to just nine players due to one seven-player trade by the Celtics and a pair of deals from the Grizzlies. Boston shipped guards Chauncey Billups and Dee Brown and forwards John Thomas and Roy Rogers to the Toronto Raptors for guard Kenny Anderson and a pair of players sitting on the injured list -- forward-center Popeye Jones and center Zan Tabak.

The Celtics led by as many as 22 points in the second half, but the Grizzlies pulled within 97-89 on a short jumper by Bryant Reeves with 3:04 remaining. Barros answered with a driving layup and a three-pointer before hitting two key free throws with 51 seconds left to help Boston win for just the third time in its last 14 road games.

"We played good offense and that's what makes the press work," Boston coach Rick Pitino said. "What we've struggled with all year is the games when we shoot 38 percent, the press never gets on."

Sam Mack scored 27 points, Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 25 and Reeves 22 for Vancouver, which had snapped a seven-game losing streak in its last outing. The Grizzlies (14-37) remained one win shy of matching their franchise-best victory total set in their inaugural season of 1995-96.

Vancouver sent Anthony Peeler to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Doug West in a swap of shooting guards earlier today before acquiring forward Michael Smith and guard Bobby Hurley from the Sacramento Kings for veteran forward Otis Thorpe and guard Chris Robinson.

Antoine Walker had 27 points and Andrew DeClercq contributed season highs of 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who improved to 2-4 on their eight-game road trip and 8-19 overall away from home.

"I was getting good shots, those are the games I've gotta have," said Walker, who added seven boards and six assists. "I was rushing a lot of my shots before, so tonight I was just taking my time and finishing them down there."

Boston dominated the first half and went ahead to stay midway through the opening period. Barros, who had seven steals, scored half of the points on an 8-0 run which snapped a 10-10 tie. The Celtics went on for a 28-18 lead after one.

DeClercq hit back-to-back layups to build the lead to 38-24 with 7:46 left in the second quarter. Walker's layup capped a quick 6-0 spurt and increased the advantage to 45-26. DeClercq scored nine points in the period and Walker added eight, guiding Boston to a 60-41 halftime cushion.

"The key was us having our guards come down and put their bodies on the line," DeClercq said. "That helped Antoine and I get all those boards. We had a lot of great team rebounds and that's really good especially against a big team like Vancouver."

The Celtics shot 53 percent (25-of-47) in the first half, and finished at 45 percent (39-of-86) overall.

After watching their deficit grow as high as 27 points in the third quarter, the Grizzlies pulled within 85-69 by the end of the period thanks in part to Abdur-Rahim's eight points.

"We're definitely going to win some more games this year, but we better approach them differently from here on out," Abdur-Rahim said. "Today, the first half was ridiculous."

Mack buried a three-pointer, Antonio Daniels hit a layup and Abdur-Rahim had a slam to cut the deficit to 94-85 with 5:34 remaining. But the young Grizzlies then seemed to have a minor breakdown.

After Walker made a free throw, Daniels missed a pair of foul shots. He appeared so frustrated that Hill opted to replace the rookie with Lee Mayberry. Blue Edwards, who scored 21 points, sank two from the line to cut it to 95-87, but Abdur-Rahim was then called for a technical after arguing his foul call on Walker.

Barros made the technical free throw and Walker sank both foul shots, pushing Boston's lead to 97-87.

A three-pointer by Barros gave the Celtics a 102-89 edge with 2:04 to play, but Vancouver fought back. Edwards hit from behind the arc to pull the Grizzlies within 104-97 with 1:08 remaining. Boston's Bruce Bowen made a free throw and missed the second, but the Celtics got the rebound and Barros made two free throws to build the lead to 107-97.

"Their press speeds up the game to their liking," Edwards said. "We got a little too rushed for our own benefit. We didn't show patience and got very disrupted."

Ron Mercer scored 16 points for the Celtics, who made 33-of-42 from the line, forced 21 turnovers and held a 45-42 edge on the glass.
