Davis, who had 20 points in all, got 7 of those 16 points in the final two minutes as he helped Boston end Detroit’s 11-game win streak while Boston won it’s 9th in a row since a home loss to these very Pistons. Davis was one of four Celtics in double figures as Paul Pierce had 19 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists, Kevin Garnett put up 15 and Tony Allen had 10.

Detroit was led by former UConn star Richard Hamilton who had 18 points and 8 assists, Chauncey Billups had 17 points and 8 assists and Rasheed Wallace chipped in 16 points and 8 rebounds.

For the first time since 1981, two NBA teams entered a game on January 5 with a combined 54 wins. They were also the first two teams since 2000, to face each other with each riding at least an eight-game winning streak.

The Celtics improved to 29-3 and are off until Wednesday when they host the Charlotte Bobcats.
