Shut em' down..

Celts shut down the Pistons in Detroit tonight 109-86. It was a solid, team wide effort all-around, led by Rondo's 17 assists, KG's game-high 22 points and the C's season-low 8 turnovers. Rondo said after Friday's win over the Knicks that the team needed to "slow down" as a whole, and they seemed to do that tonight. Jermaine O'Neal was consistent in his first start of the season, replacing the injured Shaq. JO had 12 points, 2 boards and 2 blocks.

Paul Pierce scored 21 on 8 of 13 shooting, and Glen Davis came off the bench for another solid night: 10 points, 5 boards and he also drew a couple of charges.

C's now fly back to Boston to face the Bucks tomorrow night at the Garden. Tomorrow will also be the 2nd half of a back-to-back for Miwaukee, who lost at home to Portland tonight. Tip-off at the Garden will be at 8pm.

I won't be able to make tomorrow's game, but will be in the house for the return of Thibs and Scal on Friday.
