Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Unable to find their game on the offensive end, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics turned up the defensive pressure to extend their home winning streak. Pierce had 19 points, eight rebounds and eight assists and the Celtics played outstanding defense on the final possession to hold on for an 84-83 victory over the Golden State Warriors. "For us to win this game strictly on our defense has got to give us some confidence," Pierce said. "The bottom line is we did what we had to to win the game." Boston took a 72-64 advantage into the fourth quarter but went cold in the final period, making just 5-of-16 shots and allowing Golden State rally. "We didn't play well and we won," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "This is a game, in my opinion, we lose earlier in the season." Derek Fisher found Clifford Robinson for consecutive layups, drawing the Warriors within a point with 43 seconds remaining. Raef LaFrentz missed a 3-pointer on the other end and Speedy Claxton grabbed the rebound before calling a timeout to set up the potential game-winning play. But Boston did not allow that play to happen. Mike Dunleavy Jr. could not get the ball in bounds and was forced to take a timeout. "We wanted to get the ball to Speedy because we felt like he could break them down," Warriors coach Mike Montgomery said. "Gary Payton did a great job of taking him away." Dunleavy had to stop the clock again when he tracked down a loose ball in the corner and was trapped by Payton with 5.3 seconds to play. Coming out of their final timeout, the Warriors got the ball to Fisher, but his desperation turnaround jumper at the buzzer was partially blocked by Ricky Davis. "I knew I held the ball for two or three seconds," Fisher said. "I felt like I had to get a shot up because you can't go without getting a shot up." Robinson scored 18 points and Troy Murphy had 15 and 16 rebounds for Golden State, which has lost three in a row since star guard Jason Richardson sprained his left ankle in practice Friday. Montgomery feels that the final play would have been different had his leading scorer been available. "What we didn't have was Jason Richardson," Montgomery said. "Jason Richardson would have gotten a shot up. We just didn't have the one guy who could really get to the point of attack." Rookie Al Jefferson recorded his first career double-double with 10 points and a career-high 11 rebounds for Boston, which has won five consecutive games at home. "It felt great to get it, especially in a win," Jefferson said. "I knew the points were going to come. I was just trying to grab as many rebounds as possible." Shaking off a strained left hamstring, Payton scored 13 points and handed out five assists for the Celtics, who have won nine of 12 vs. the Warriors in Boston. Payton missed Monday's contest against the New Orleans Hornets because of the injury, ending his streak of 305 straight games. Starting in place of Richardson, Calbert Cheaney scored all 10 of his points in the first half, which ended with the Warriors trailing, 45-43. Pierce added 10 in the first two quarters, but missed his first five shots made just 7-of-20.
