Paul Pierce's return to the line-up was the big story for the Celtics against the Pistons
Thoughts I thought
Paul Pierce’s return was easily the most important thing these Boston Celtics needed to finally get into the win column. It was clear from the get go that Paul Pierce was trying to be aggressive and prove that he was ready to return. He got to the basket, got himself...

Perhaps all the Boston Celtics needed was their best player. Losers of their first three games this season, the Celtics welcomed back Paul Pierce and then welcomed themselves to the win column with a 96-85 victory over the Detroit Pistons.
In his debut, Pierce had 12 points, five assists and four rebounds. He hit half of his eight shots from the field and both of his free throws...
It sure was good to get a win in this one and just as good to see the Captain back on the court. There's no use criticizing the Pistons, their fans seem to do enough of that. I feel bad for them because I've been there as a Celtics fan. Most remember their championship teams and now are hitting bottom. Some fun comments. Of course there are the recurring Boston is...
The Celtics shot 52.2% from the floor and they were up 86-64 after three quarters, so the Pistons never really mounted much of a challenge. Jermaine O’Neal shot 7 of 9 from the floor last night as he led the way for the Celtics with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 blocked shots. Ray Allen (17 points, 1 rebound, 4 assists and 1 steal) and Brandon Bass (17 points and 3...
The sun sets every evening, but only occasionally are the clouds splayed perfectly across the night sky to draw an array of yellow, orange and blue pastels and catch your attention so beautifully that a higher power suddenly seems like a greater possibility. Not one to watch sunsets routinely, I occasionally glance at the sky in the evening at the right time and wonder why I don’t...
WASHINGTON - On one play last night, Celtics center Jermaine O’Neal tried to dunk lefthanded on the Wizards’ JaVale McGee after a behind-the-back dish from Rajon Rondo. Perhaps it was the criticism he received after scoring just 8 points in the first three games, but O’Neal has been an aggressive and productive scorer the past two games.
I imagine Rashard Lewis wakes up each morning, admires his grizzly goatee in the mirror, thanks God (or Otis Smith) for his $118 million contract and then spends 45 minutes throwing darts at a board adorned with photos of Nick Young, Andray Blatche and Jordan Crawford. It took just 18 seconds for Young to launch his first step-back, contested jump shot of the night. Blatche continued...
Jermaine O'Neal scored 19 points, Paul Pierce added 12 in his season debut, and the Boston Celtics ended a dismal start to their season with a 96-85 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
Unquestionably, there were semblances of doubt and insecurity that surfaced after the Celtics limped home Wednesday night after essentially having their pride snatched away, balled up, and discarded by the New Orleans Hornets. The Celtics spent the next 48 hours trying to disregard their disappointment at being winless.
Rajon Rondo had 18 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds while Kevin Garnett had 24 points and nine rebounds to lead the Boston Celtics over the winless Washington Wizards 94-86 on Sunday night.
