Rapid reaction: C's 117, Mavs 115 (2 OT)

By Chris Forsberg | ESPNBoston.com

BOSTON -- Rapid reaction after the Boston Celtics defeated the Dallas Mavericks 117-115 in double overtime on Wednesday night at TD Garden:

THE NITTY GRITTY
Paul Pierce scored a game-high 34 points on 11-of-25 shooting with six rebounds, four steals, and three assists. His biggest bucket might have been a 3-pointer at the start of the second overtime (and he hit four big free throws in the final moments of the second extra session to help finally seal the win). Rajon Rondo flirted with an extra-time triple-double, putting up 16 points, 15 assists, and nine rebounds. Jason Terry registered 10 points on 3-of-10 shooting and might have been a little overhyped against his former squad. OJ Mayo scored a team-high 24 points on 10-of-19 shooting for the Mavericks, while Darren Collison scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting off the bench.

TURNING POINT 1: BOSTON BUILDS A LEAD
A two-possession game early in the third quarter, the Celtics embarked on an 11-2 run to give themselves a little breathing room. Garnett lit the fuse with a 19-foot jumper and a Brandon Bass steal led to a Terry 3-pointer. Bass produced two easy buckets -- sandwiched around a Dallas timeout that couldn't stem the momentum -- with a putback and a driving dunk for a 65-52 lead with 6:36 remaining in the frame. But the Mavericks wouldn't go quietly...

TURNING POINT 2: A 140-SECOND GAME
Dallas seemingly couldn't get over the hump, but back-to-back layups by Mayo and Darren Collison tied the game at 92 with 2:40 to play. Fast-forward to the closing moments: Rondo managed to poke the ball free as Mayo attempted a late drive, registering a steal that gave Boston the ball with 6.9 seconds to go. Rondo, however, couldn't even get off a quality shot at the buzzer as his 20-foot step-back was blocked by Derrick Fisher.

TURNING POINT 3: OT -- PIERCE CAN'T WIN IT
In a back-and-forth battle, Rondo drove baseline and kicked to Garnett in his sweetspot for an 18-foot jumper and a 105-103 lead with 26 seconds to go. At the other end, Mayo blew past Rondo and finished between Pierce and Garnett to tie the game with 11.1 seconds to play. This time around it was Pierce who couldn't get off a quality shot, draped by Dahntay Jones at the right elbow.

TURNING POINT 4: DOUBLE OT
A Pierce 3-pointer to open the second extra session was the only Boston bucket over the first 4½ minutes, but it was enough to keep the Mavericks at arm's length. The Celtics were up a point when Rondo completed a driving layup and Pierce added a free throw soon after to put Boston up four with 17.3 seconds to go. Even Boston couldn't mess that up.

KG'S REBOUND SHUTOUT ENDS
After being shut out on the glass during Saturday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers, Garnett didn't get his first rebound of the game until two minutes into the second quarter on Wednesday. Dating back to a rebound in overtime against the 76ers on Friday, he ultimately went 62 minutes, 41 seconds without a rebound. Here's a bit more from Elias Sports Bureau: Garnett's shut out on Saturday ended his streak of 1,159 consecutive regular season games with at least one rebound. That had been the longest current streak for any active player. Tim Duncan now has the longest active streak, having collected at least one rebound in all of his 1132 career games. The Mavericks’ Shawn Marion has the second-longest active streak behind Duncan at 951 games.

WHAT IT MEANS
Well, that was ugly. No, seriously, burn the game tape. Then burn it again. But a Boston team focused on putting wins together now has two in a row and it doesn't matter how ugly it was nor that it came against the Dirk Nowitzki-less Mavericks. The Celtics were certainly not complaining about the absence of Nowitzki, who sat courtside for the game as he rehabs from knee surgery. According to Elias Sports Bureau, since the start of the 1998-99 season (Nowitzki’s rookie year), the Celtics were 7-19 (.269) against the Mavericks. That matches Boston’s worst mark against any opponent over the last 15 seasons. Dallas had won the last four games before Wednesday's meeting. Bottom line: The game probably never should have been as close as it was. The Mavericks committed 28 turnovers leading to 30 points, but Boston just couldn't get out of its own way (missing 3-pointers and bunnies alike, and offering little resistance when Dallas rallied). The Celtics now depart on a three-game road trip with stops in Houston, San Antonio, and Chicago before the team returns home to welcome Cleveland next Wednesday night.

FAST BREAK: PAUL PIERCE, CELTICS OUTLAST MAVERICKS IN DOUBLE OT

By Ben Rohrbach

After Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce each missed potential game-winnters to end regulation and the first overtime, they combined for 10-of-12 points in the second OT as the Celtics outlasted the Mavericks, 117-115. Courtney Lee scored the other two, a pair of free throws that kept an O.J. Mayo 3-pointer at the buzzer from forcing a third overtime.

Pierce finished with a season-high 34 points, Rondo missed his second triple-double in three games by a single rebound (16 points, 15 assists, 9 rebounds) and four other Celtics reached double figures: Kevin Garnett (16 points), Jeff Green (15 points), Jason Terry (10 points) and Chris Wilcox (10 points).

In a wild final two minutes of regulation, Derek Fisher‘s 3-pointer gave the Mavericks their first lead, 95-94 with 1:47 to play in the fourth quarter. A Pierce jumper briefly gave the Celtics the lead back, but O.J. Mayo made 1-of-2 free throws to force a tie. That resulted in a seven-second span in which Rondo poked the ball loose from Mayo with 6.9 seconds left and got his shot blocked by Fisher as time expired on the other end.

Likewise, in the first overtime, Pierce and Garnett each drilled go-ahead jump shots in the final minute, but Shawn Marion (16 points, 11 rebounds) and Mayo (team-high 21 points) answered on both occasions. And the unimaginative Pierce elbow jumper failed as the clock ran out on OT No. 1.

A Pierce triple to begin the second overtime gave the Celtics the lead for good, as they held off every run the Mavericks had left in them, including a Vince Carter trey that brought them within one in the final minute.

WHAT WENT RIGHT

Early birds: Celtics coach Doc Rivers didn’t hold practices on Sunday or Monday and held a 90-minute session on Tuesday. Garnett, Pierce and Rondo needed the rest. The trio totaled 15 points (7-10 FG) and seven assists in the first quarter, when their teammates combined for 12 points (3-12 FG) and zero assists. The C’s All-Star triumvirate helped stake them to a 27-25 lead after one that they didn’t relinquish until the fourth quarter.

Mean Jeff Green: His 5-of-15 shooting be damned, Green played like the guy the Celtics need off the bench. He collected seven points — including a corner trey that raised his season average from that spot to 53.8 percent — to go along with four rebounds in the first half. Green only grabbed that many boards in four of his first 16 games. He’s now reached that plateau in 4-of-5 games in December, when he’s averaging 14.4 points and 4.6 rebounds.

Big help: Speaking of active reserves, Wilcox held the fort as Garnett sat the final 7:21 of the first quarter, totaling four points (a layup and a pair of free throws after a missed layup) and three offensive boards in that span. Entering the game, 41 of his 48 shots had come from the restricted area, where he was shooting 75.6 percent.

Truth matters: It wasn’t always pretty, but Pierce finished with a season-high 34 points (he’s had 27 on three separate occasions) on 11-of-25 shooting, including 12 points in the two overtime periods. His 3-pointer to start the second overtime put the tired Mavericks on their heels, and his 5-of-6 free throws in the final 19 seconds kept Dallas at bay.

WHAT WENT WRONG

No D on Dallas: After a few days of discussion about how their defense has improved over the past handful of games, the Celtics allowed the Mavericks to shoot 70 percent for the first 6:32. Chris Kaman, Marion and Mayo combined for 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting to help offset the torrid start from Garnett, Pierce and Rondo.

Cold seconds: Somehow, the Celtics shot just 36.8 percent (7-19 FG) in the second quarter and actually increased their lead to 48-43 at the half — thanks to improved defense (held the Mavericks to 40%) and Pierce’s 4-of-5 shooting (11 points) in the frame. Everybody else on the C’s shot a combined 3-of-14 (10 points).

Paint points: It’s been a problem all season. The Celtics entered allowing 42 points in the paint per game, which ranks among the bottom third in the NBA. Wednesday night didn’t help matters, as the Mavericks scored 60 points in the key, including 16 in an ugly fourth quarter that saw their one-time 14-point lead evaporate. Even Fisher waltzed through the lane for a layup that forced a timeout from an irate Rivers.

Hold the Mayo: After Tuesday’s practice, the Celtics expressed concern about cooling Mayo’s hot scoring. Regardless, he scored 24 points on 10-of-19 shooting, including a beautiful driving layup that tied the game at 105-105 with 11 seconds left in the first overtime.

To anyone:

Since the term "ugly win," seems like an oxymoron to me, I'd prefer to describe this win as a "grinder." I don't think it's particularly "ugly" to get out a reasonably early lead, to hold the lead for almost the entire game, to withstand everything the opponent could try in playing catch-up, and to pull the game out in overtime.

Yes, there were some frustrating Celtics point blank misses, but what I particularly liked was the pace they set AND SUSTAINED. So you miss a few and even get out control occasionally, but the discipline of running on almost everything was very rewarding to see. Also, despite the late heroics of Mayo, I thought the Celtics defense did a generally good job of clogging the middle and forcing a lot of short misses by the Mavs. It's also nice to see Jeff Green finding more of a contributing niche for himself with this team.

About half way through the second quarter, I mentioned to a nearby friend that this team is finally fun to watch. They're climbing a big ladder, rung by rung. There's a long way to go, but they seem to have reached the point where they can outperform or outlast .500 teams fairly regularly as guys like Wilcox, Green, Terry and even Lee come ever-closer to being comfortable in the system.

I was interested to see that Doc went with Terry throughout crunch time of regulation and most of the overtimes, even when he appeared to be dragging a bit. I think he replace Jason with Lee in the last minute. I would have had Lee in the game earlier to defend Mayo, but I guess Doc figured he needed Terry's offensive threat and floor spacing more than defense at his position.

Paul Pierce played one of his "rising to the occasion" games last night, and KG continues to amaze me with the accuracy of his long jumper, rising up off tired legs. Rondo did a lot of good things out there, but Mayo repeatedly left him in the dust and I seriously think the Celtics need to develop an end-of-game play that doesn't involve Rondo slipping or bobbling the ball.

One disturbing pattern I'm seeing is that it's usually when they slow down their halfcourt movement that the other team cuts into the Celtics' leads. Sometimes Rondo's out at the arc just waiting for someone to cut so he can make a pass that becomes more dangerous with every passing second and tightened defense by the opponent. I thought the Mavs moved without the ball very well, playing off the pick-and-roll with a number of options.

The Celtics did use a play I took note of during one of the 76ers games. It involves two players curling from under the basket and out to the left and right elbows respectively. That play (especially if a pick or two is thrown in) can wreak havoc with a defense for a clear medium-range jumper.

This was such an exciting and fun game to watch that Mrs. Sam even joined me and said she'd like to see more Celtics games. (However, I don't think she's ready for season tickets at this point.)

Go Celtics

Was at the game - and had a blast.

The Celtics could have won by 15. They also could have lost. Glad to see them keep fighting and growing and improving game after game.

Jeff Green looks better and better, Rondo had some great defensive plays and outstanding passing, and the Captain is a beast when you need him most.

I also won an auction for an autographed Bill Russell picture (will post a picture soon) - for a very good price. Great night all around.

This is the 2nd time in a row we've had 3 days off between games and struggled in our return. This time we won, but it was "grind-ly", to abuse a Sam-ism. Needing 2 OTs to beat a Dirk-less Mav team at home after 3 days of rest and practice isn't how it's supposed to work, except for the "winning" part.

We blew a 14 point 3rd quarter lead. NOT good. They worked and worked and worked. I think our communication left much to be desired. We ran, they ran up behind us and knocked the ball away, and nobody let the ball player know there was a player coming up behind him. We get the rebound and make a sloppy outlet pass, they're all over it. We slowed things down, they sped them up. Their way almost worked.

1. Paul Pierce abused poor D-Fish all night. I thought the call that fouled D-Fish out was bogus, but it was the fouls he picked up all night with the unenviable job of defending a much bigger player that was his undoing. Pierce, I thought could have gone to the line a lot more than for 11fta, I thought. A lot of contact all night, and he absolutely was hit, clearly, on the forearm on that 19'er that would have won it in the 1st OT. Pierce doesn't seem to be getting the same love and respect from the refs he used to.

2. I thought the reason we had such a deep bench was to rest our starters? Doc played 9 players last night, in a double OT game. Rick Carlysle played 11 and he's down a Dirk to begin with, which means he went 12 deep into his roster. KG played 40 minutes, JET played 48 and Pierce played 44, Rondo played 53 (he averaged less than one minute rest in each period) and that's not good. We're not going to have a team meeting before the game in Houston, we're going to have a team nap. Normally, I am a HUGE fan of Doc and how he manages minutes, roles and egos. This game, however, is not going into the scrapbook in that respect.

3. Barbosa must still be ill, because Darren Collison was blowing by Rondo and everybody else and The Blur never took off his warmups. Collison had 20 points on 8-11 shooting, most of them at or near the rim in transition.

4. OJ Mayo was another one we had trouble with. We were told he'd be trouble. 10-19 shooting from everywhere. We could not stop him well. Rondo's defense on him was wrong. He was right up in his face, and Mayo just blew past him. Btw, is OJ Mayo a horrible name, or what? Does he have a high-flying cousin named PB "Jam"?

5. Our defense was very stingy at times and it forced a lot of turnovers. Collison had 7 and Mayo had 9. Thank God, or we'd have been sunk in regulation, because they shot 51% as a team. Our perimeter defense, for the most part, was stellar. Unfortunately, that gave up a lot of baseline baskets. Credit to the Mavs for going to the rim and then hitting them with a pass over our defenders. Our transition defense off our own turnovers, however, was not that great.

6. Sully had, perhaps, the worst game of his short career. Couldn't shoot and made some bad decisions on outlet passing. He's a very smart kid, this will be a learning experience.

7. I can understand Rondo walking it up in OTs, everybody was tired, but he's back in his "stand out top and watch other people move" mode. Or they don't, and that has been our problem. We don't move and he stands there waiting for them to move. We're not executing our halfcourt sets quickly and as a result we're getting the shot clock down under 5 seconds and then we are forced into a not-so-good shot. We shot 43% this game. That uptempo, fast-breaking style we thought we were going to see this year? They take it off the shelf occasionally, but it's not a constant threat like I had hoped it would be.

8. If Shawn Marion can shoot 86% from the line with those free throw shooting mechanics, Rondo should be over 90%. Well, it might not look good, you might turn to your kids and say "don't do it like him", but they go in. The team rebound the Mav's got, where Pierce came from behind him and knocked it out of bound through Marion's hands, happened because Pierce forgot to put a body on his man. The Mavs, including 34 year old Marion, worked very hard last night.

9. KG's numbers weren't that great, especially for 40 minutes, but his presence on the court was huge. He was everywhere on defense. The perimeter, underneath, stopping fast breaks. Everywhere. I didn't see Melo on the bench, I hadn't heard of him being sent back to Maine, but if he was there I hope he never took his eyes off of KG. That's how to do it, kid, that's how you do it.

10. The JET did not put on an air show for his former teammates. 3-10, 1-6 from 3. He's in a slump.

11. Jeff Green appeared, disappeared and then re-appeared. His energy and aggressiveness were not consistent this game, but overall he looked good. Not a great shooting night, 5-16 for 15 points, but he had 5 rebounds and was 4-4 from the line. It's all about aggressiveness with Jeff Green and aggressiveness is all about confidence with Jeff Green. I don't understand how any professional athlete in any sport can lack for confidence, it's an absolute job requirement, but it has been well-documented that Green has to be constantly stroked by his teammates. Well, if that's what's necessary, I'll blow a few air-kisses his way. We need him to keep playing the way he has the past week. You're amazing, you're spectacular, Jeff, you're the bomb. We're not worthy, we're not worthy (and, over-hyped comparisons notwithstanding, you're not Worthy either...).

12. Technically, we won this game with turnovers and on getting to the line. They had 27 turnovers and our defense were responsible for a lot of them. We had a lot of deflections. On our side we had a wonderfully few 13 TOs in 58 minutes of play. We should bottle that. Considering how Doc has been preaching the need to get our TOs down to 14/regulation game, he has to be positively thrilled with that. We got 34 points off of their 27 TOs, while they only got 17 points off of our 13 TOs. We also had 30fta vs 17 for them. The usually reliable Brandon Bass was 3-6 but everybody else was hitting theirs at a nice clip.

With back-to-back games coming up Friday and Saturday against Houston (10-11) and San Antonio (18-5), what does Doc do? Does he rest his starters and play the bench against the weaker Houston team and then try to make a last stand at the Alamo to send a message, or does he say "a win is a win is a win" and go for the broke with the starters against Houston and hope they have enough left in the tank against the VERY good Spurs? On Tuesday, we're in Chicago, an EC rival. We are now in 6th place in the East, tied with Chicago and Brooklyn at 12-9 but trailing them in the rankings because of their superior records intra-conference. Brooklyn will fatten themselves up by feasting on a visiting Detroit Pistons team but then have to visit Chicago. Chicago doesn't play until Saturday against Brooklyn but then visits the astonishing 14-5 Memphis Griz on Monday. We get them Tuesday, on the 2nd night of a back-to-back. That might be the only break we get over the coming week.

Our offense is still stagnant, but I'm starting to recognize our defense again, 51% fg% by Dallas notwithstanding. I'll take progress where I see it.

Here are some post-game comments by Doc:

“I’ve been talking about (defensive pressure) a lot, and over the
last seven games it’s been paying dividends for us,” said Rivers. “I
told our guys, we also broke our own record with deflections. It felt
like we had 100, and it was important, because we couldn’t make a shot.

“I didn’t like our shots down the stretch, but overall we got a lot
of good shots,” he said. “They just weren’t going in. So we won a game
where the team we played shot 51 percent, and we shot 43 percent. That
was happening to us earlier in the year, where we lost a couple of games
where we shot the exact opposite.

“When you get more possessions like that, you give yourself a chance to win the game.”
“Well I thought we started walking the ball up the floor,” Rivers
said. “I thought our tempo changed in the fourth quarter. You know,
it’s funny: they went small, we went small, you would think your tempo
would increase. We actually went the other way. I thought the biggest
mistake I made, actually, is keeping Rondo in that long.
“I thought I took the gamble, and sometimes it’s a good one sometimes
it’s a bad one and I didn’t think this was a good one. I just thought
he got tired. You know, I didn’t give them that normal rest two minutes
before the fourth and let him get some rest. I mean obviously I didn’t
anticipate a double overtime game. But I thought that had an impact on
him and on his speed in the game. I told our guys with like four
minutes left – my coaches, because then it was too late – I said, ‘This
was not a good decision.’ And that decision could’ve hurt us.”






I sure as hell agree with his comments about not liking our shots, but do agree with him about deflections. I wasn't aware, also, that this was the Celtics 3rd OT outing in the last 8 games, 4th total, and that we're 3-1 in OT games. That builds character and confidence.

Hey we won and that's the idea only watched the last part and the OT's (Marcus's team played the #6th state ranked class C team last evening and won 48-35. 5-0 this year) I just saw so many wasted possessions down the stretch and into the OT's. So much of the 24 wasted, no one moving no attempt to take it to the hoop. Did look like PP got tapped on the one shot at the end of "regulartion or OT" can't remember but even then it was a bad shot to begin with. If they were taking it to win it I wouldn't want a bail out call against us either.

Seems when we did get a shot off more times than not it was forced.

Rondo is turning into a friggin turnstile and it's killing us that he can't or perhaps WON'T stay in front of his man. Got away with a reach around steal late but so often that gets called a foul. Oh well.

Again we won and we. But we got a lot of improving to do.

Hi,
I just wanted to note a couple of "glimmers" that continued in the last night's game.
First, RR continues hitting mid-range jumpers. Last night, I believe, he was 5-6.
Second, JG continues scoring. In the last 5 games he's above 15ppg in 24mpg

As for the game, I have a question: why did Doc put RR on OJ Mayo (I wonder how oj would taste with mayo in it), instead of, say, Lee?

The Truth, over D-Fish. Who says torture doesn't work?







KG, with the defensive deflection, Rondo to a racing Green for the dunk. Green should run ALL the time. He is so tough when he does.







Notice that at least 3 Mavs were ahead of Green when he started running. Also noticed that somebody (Fisher?) almost ran Rondo down from behind. That happened more than once this game.








Rondo, with the buzzerbeater to end the 3rd, showing you cannot just back off him anymore.







Unfortunately, this was called a 2, not a 3 (correctly).











Um, foul?






Darren Collison, outrunning his man (Rondo) down court.







This should have been an offensive foul on Brand, but it wasn't.







Three Mavs watching Rondo, none of them watching their man...

One thing I don't believe anyone has mentioned (sorry if I'm wrong) is that the Celtics took 9 more shots than the Mavs. I find that a bit difficult to believe because, frankly, they were standing around so much of the time. But it represents a "volume improvement" over the typical ratio vs. the opponent. Also, the Celts more than held their own on the offensive boards (+2 over the Mavs), which is not shocking in light of the fact that the Celtics had 13 more of their own errant shots to work with than the Mavs did. But, at least the Celts didn't completely neglect the offensive boards.
