Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Tough shots by Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker dealt the Orlando Magic a tough loss. Long jumpers by Pierce and Walker in overtime lifted the surging Boston Celtics to a 114-109 victory over the Magic, whose road woes continued. Pierce scored 30 points and fellow All-Star Walker added 28 for Boston, which has won four of its last five games and eight of 10. The Celtics improved to 3-0 in overtime. The Magic led after each of the first three quarters but needed Tracy McGrady's follow shot with 1.3 seconds left to force the extra session. They never led in overtime, missing their first seven shots. "Tough loss, tough loss," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "Really no complaints. Our guys played extremely hard. They competed their butts off. A couple things didn't go their way. In overtime I think we got outside of who we were. We tried to make perfect plays instead of taking the shots." Despite their cold spell, the Magic trailed just 98-96 with less than three minutes to go. With the shot clock running down, Pierce appeared to take a hit on the forearm as he stepped back and drilled a 22-footer to give Boston a four-point lead with 2:26 left. "We defended them throughout the course of the shot clock and they just hit big shots when the clock was ticking," Magic forward Grant Hill said. Less than a minute later, Walker was at the arc on the left wing and appeared to be looking for a pick to his left when he took a dribble step backward and fired a quick shot over Pat Garrity that banged in for a 103-96 lead with 1:39 to play. "They were doing a good job of double-teaming Paul," Walker said. "I just didn't want to turn it over - I had about eight in the game already; I didn't want to commit another one right there. So I figured I'd just shoot it in that situation, and luckily I made it because that one really sealed the game for us." "That was the kind of the like the dagger," Pierce said. "Once he hit that 3-pointer, you could see it knocked the wind out of them. They played great defense, then at that point, Antoine steps back and hits the three over a double-team and it will take the wind out of you. That's why he's an All-Star." The shot came right in front of Rivers and the Magic's bench. "I still think you try to get up (on defense)," Rivers said. "I don't ever allow a guy to take that three. I think you make him drive. But I think Pat (Garrity) did as well as he could. It was just a hell of a shot." "That just took all the air out of us," McGrady said. "It was playing good defense, the shot clock was running down, you're doing everything it takes to try to stop them and he knocks down that long three. Yeah, it was very deflating." Tony Delk scored 20 points for the Celtics, who beat the Magic in Orlando a week ago. Midway through a four-game homestand, Boston improved to 9-3 at the FleetCenter. McGrady scored 31 points and Mike Miller added 29 for Orlando, which has dropped back-to-back games, both on the road. "We competed for four quarters and in overtime, they competed a little bit harder than us," McGrady said. There were five ties and five lead changes in the last six minutes of the fourth quarter. A runner by Walker gave the Celts a 95-93 lead with 2:01 remaining, but neither team scored for nearly two minutes. The Magic forced a 24-second violation and took possession with 3.8 seconds left. Grant Hill inbounded to McGrady, who spun away from the defense and missed a driving layup but quickly put it back in. "I couldn't see it, but T-Mac hit a lot on that final shot - that's all I'll say - to send it into overtime," Rivers said. "But at least they let the players decide the game." A three-point play by Eric Williams pulled Boston into an 83-83 tie with 5:43 left and Pierce's three-point play gave the Celts an 88-87 lead with 4:21 to go. After Hill drove for a basket, Pierce made a 3-pointer for a 91-89 lead with 3:55 remaining. McGrady answered with a tough jumper and Shawn Kemp's follow shot gave Orlando a 93-91 edge with 2:55 to play. Pierce, who scored 13 points in the period, tied it with two free throws 16 seconds later. Vin Baker scored a season-high 10 points for Boston, which shot 48 percent (39-of-82) from the field, including 12-of-31 from the arc. He saw considerable minutes after center Tony Battie was ejected for arguing midway through the third quarter. "It really was a showcase tonight of two teams' wills of trying to win a basketball game," Baker said. "Once again, our team showed our character tonight and showed how bad we want to win and be on top of our division." Hill had 20 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists for Orlando, which shot 43 percent (38-of-89) and held a 51-42 edge on the glass. Hill also committed seven of his team's 22 turnovers. McGrady scored 17 points in the first half, including a 3-pointer just before the horn that gave the Magic a 51-49 lead. Miller scored 10 points in the third quarter to help push the lead to 75-69.
