Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Boston Celtics broke through when the Phoenix Suns broke down. Antoine Walker had 33 points and 13 rebounds and Paul Pierce added 25 and 12 as the Celtics posted a 120-113 overtime triumph over the Suns, who lost at home to an Eastern Conference opponent for the first time this season. The physical game included a couple of near skirmishes and a great deal of trash talking by both sides. The two teams combined for seven technicals in the first 7 1/2 minutes of the game and Suns coach Mike D'Antoni was ejected with 19.9 seconds remaining - the first time since becoming the Suns coach in December 2003. "This to me is the way the game should be played," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "It was high intensity. There were a couple of times where both teams went over but I would love every game like this. When both teams let their emotions ride." Boston shook off a disappointing final two minutes of regulation by dominating defensively in overtime. Phoenix missed its first six shots in the extra session and looked totally out of sorts without injured point guard Steve Nash and starting center Amare Stoudemire, who fouled out early in the fourth quarter. "We used a lot of energy in the fourth quarter and we ran out of gas in the overtime," admitted Suns forward Shawn Marion, who set a career high with 20 rebounds. "People are going to come here and try to talk trash to us and try to take us out of our game. We've got the right to talk trash, especially when the other team isn't even over .500." For the second night in a row Phoenix committed 19 turnovers. The Suns also missed all but six of their 17 3-point attempts. Stoudemire had 27 points before fouling out with 8:47 remaining in regulation and Joe Johnson added 21 for the Suns, who were 12-0 at home against teams from the East in 2004-05. Rookie Delonte West had a season-high 19 points and Ricky Davis added 16 for Boston, which beat Phoenix for just the second time in the last seven meetings. Walker shot just 12-of-32 from the field but has 56 points in the two games since returning to the Celtics at the trade deadline. Boston has won both games. "That was a huge win for us and a great way to finish the road trip," Walker said. "Early on we jumped on them and we outlasted them. That is great finishing up the trip 2-2 after we started 0-2." Walker recorded his 26th double-double of the season. Pierce, who was involved in most of the trash talking, pulled down 12 rebounds for his 12th double-double. "People don't understand what the game of basketball is all about," Pierce explained. "It's a physical war out there but people don't understand the psychology of the game. I was trying to get my teammates fired up and get our emotions in the game. We responded and it turned into the type of game we liked to play." "That is what usually happens when we play a .500 team," D'Antoni said. "We're the best team in the league and we have the best record and we need to respond to a sub-par team."
