Boston Celtics: Paul Pierce was a monster in the second half, scoring 21 of his 28 points to help the Boston Celtics to a 105-98 win over the Miami Heat at the TD Banknorth Garden. The win coupled with the Orlando Magic’s loss to the NY Knicks gives the Celtics a 2-game lead for second place in the Eastern Conference. The Cleveland Cavailiers clinched the top spot tonight so the best the Celtics can do is the 2 seed. Glen “Big Baby” Davis added 22 points and former UConn Husky Ray Allen had 21. Rajon Rondo chipped in with 7 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists. Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 31 points and 9 assists while Michael Beasley had 23 points and Jermaine O’Neal had 16. The Celtics have three games left in the season and head out on a 2-game trip that starts out with a matchup in Cleveland on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 PM on ABC. []
