Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Boston Celtics went from famine to feast in a hurry. In their first home appearance since suffering the worst loss in franchise history, the Celtics posted their most lopsided win of the season, a 114-74 rout of the Seattle SuperSonics that ended a four-game losing streak. Paul Pierce scored 26 points for Boston while Tony Delk led a strong effort off the bench with 22. Celtics' reserves accounted for 46 points. "Sometimes you get hammered, sometimes you hammer other people," said Jim O'Brien, who recorded his 100th win as Celtics' coach. "It's the way sometimes the games are played. Sometimes it's difficult to stop an avalanche, and it was difficult for them tonight." Boston poured it on from the outside, converting 16-of-36 3-pointers, including four by Delk and three each by Pierce, J.R. Bremer and former Sonic Shammond Williams. "Great way to go into the All-Star break," O'Brien said. "I thought we did an exceptional job of passing the basketball and picked up our offense in the second and third quarters." Seattle's third loss in four games matched the third-worst in team history. "We have no excuse," Sonics guard Gary Payton said. "We weren't playing defense. You can't beat teams like this when they're getting wide-open jump shots. Anybody can get them wide-open looks, anybody can make them. My mother's little son can make them." On Friday, the Celtics were humiliated by the Detroit Pistons, whose 118-66 victory was the second-most lopsided road win in NBA history. Boston was considerably more efficient in this one, building a 61-44 halftime lead. The Celtics surpassed their total against the Pistons when Antoine Walker hit a 3-pointer to make it 67-48 with 7:44 left in the third quarter. "We needed it," Walker said. "It was a big game for us. We came out with a lot of energy tonight and we've been lacking that. And we did it for four quarters tonight." Boston was without forward Vin Baker, who underwent tests earlier in the day for light-headedness. He was hardly missed as the Celtics finished the rout by outscoring Seattle, 35-13, in the final period. "Vin's fine," Walker said. "From my understanding, he wasn't feeling well. When you're not feeling well, you got to do what the doctors say, and I guess they told him not to play. We know he'll be back." Despite shooting just 32 percent in the first quarter, the Celtics managed a 27-25 lead. They caught fire in the second period, shooting 71 percent (15-of-21) and taking control with a late spurt. "They basically brought it to us and rubbed it in our face," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "I didn't see any response from us. They basically rubbed it in our face the entire 48 minutes." With Boston holding a 47-40 lead, Williams hit consecutive 3-pointers to ignite a 14-4 run that ended the first half. He finished with 15 points. Rashard Lewis scored 15 points for Seattle. The Celtics placed six players in double figures. Walker scored 14 points and Tony Battie and Bremer contributed 12 apiece. Boston finished at 48 percent (43-of-89) and blew out Seattle with excellent ball movement, recording 30 assists and a season-low six turnovers. During their run late in the second quarter, the Celtics excited the crowd with four straight layups off pinpoint passes. Payton suffered a split upper lip when he accidently ran into teammate Desmond Mason with 1:56 left in the first half. Payton, who scored 14 points, returned for the start of the second half after receiving three stitches. The Sonics shot just 36 percent (29-of-80), including 2-of-12 from beyond the arc.
