WOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!! 30 and frikkin 5 !!!!!!!!!!!! but beating the current Celtics almosty should count for only 1/2 a win. I think some of the better NCAA teams could do that!
It's a shame to think of this franchise...where Celtic Pride was once feared and respected, could fall to these depths. Where's a modern Day Red Auerbach? or Bill Russell, k.C. Jones, Havlicek, Bird, Sharman, Cousy..or countless others who knew HOW to win.....
Anyways...here's a little on today's (ahem) game:
Detroit 94, Boston 84
Rasheed Wallace’s Huge Third Quarter Lifts Pistons

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 16 (Ticker) -- The Boston Celtics didn't have one single player who could contain Rasheed Wallace in the third quarter. Wallace scored 18 of his 23 points in the third period and Richard Hamilton added 18 as the Detroit Pistons won their fourth straight game. A 6-11 forward with 3-point range, Wallace is having one of his best seasons from the arc, shooting 41 percent and ranking 14th in the NBA with 70 3-pointers. On Monday, he made 9-of-12 shots, including 3-of-6 from the arc, while grabbing nine rebounds.
The Pistons were nursing an 80-74 lead with under six minutes remaining when Tayshaun Prince scored on a runner and a 3-pointer from the right corner to rebuild the lead to double digits. Prince scored nine of his 13 points in the final quarter. {{clamping down at crunchtime}}

Chauncey Billups had 13 points and 16 assists {{16 assists!! and he's not an all star calibre point guard??}} Detroit, which shot 50 percent (35-of-70) overall and 8-of-19 from 3-point range. {{most of these shots were basically uncontested}}

Paul Pierce scored 21 points and Delonte West added 21 and seven rebounds for the Celtics, who shot a dismal 2-of-13 from the arc. Ricky Davis was held in check, going scoreless on 0-of-8 shooting.
{{These guys wearing Celtic uniforms...are an insult to Bird/Parrish/McHale/Johnson/Ainge....like seeing a hooker in a nun outfit!!!}}
WEll onward and upward.......
