Rajon Rondo scored 18 of his 26 points in the third quarter to help the Boston Celtics tie a franchise record with their 18th straight win, beating the visiting New York Knicks 124-105 yesterday. "Rondo was unbelievable in the third quarter," Kevin Garnett said. "He totally took the game over. " [Rondo's] fast and he's playing with some good guys," said Knicks' coach Mike D'Antoni. The win improved Boston's record to 26-2, matching the NBA mark for the best start by a team with two losses.

Ray Allen found his shooting touch just in time to put the Boston Celtics within one win of returning to the NBA Finals for the first time since the original Big Three. Allen scored 29 points, hitting a long two-pointer after Detroit came within one point with a minute left, then he and Kevin Garnett each made a pair of free throws down the stretch as the host Celtics beat the Pistons last night, 106-102, to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Garnett scored 33 - his most in the playoffs this year - Kendrick Perkins had 18 points and 16 rebounds, and Rajon Rondo added seven points, 13 assists and six rebounds for Boston.

Rajon Rondo took the pass from Eddie House and bolted for the basket, cutting between 6-11 Dwight Howard and 6-10 Rashard Lewis for a thunderous dunk. In a crucial game for the Boston Celtics, the little guys came up big. Rondo had 15 points, 18 assists and 11 rebounds for his third triple-double of the playoffs, and House scored a career high-shattering 31 points last night to lead host Boston to a 112-94 victory over the Orlando Magic that evened the Eastern Conference semifinals at one game apiece.

All the indications of the 1980s were there: The Celtics and Lakers on the parquet, a full house chanting "Beat L.A.!" and even a clip of an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie on the scoreboard. The real Schwarzenegger was sitting courtside last night watching host Boston and Los Angeles renew their rivalry. And the NBA's fiercest foes from the '80s showed that they have a chance for a pretty good second act, too. "I could see it on the people's faces in the building," Ray Allen said after Boston won, 107-94, in his first game for the Celtics against the Lakers.

Three weeks ago, the 76ers were talking playoffs. Today, they are thinking of creative ways to stay focused for what will amount to 21 meaningless games. Last night's 96-86 loss to the Boston Celtics at the Wachovia Center wasn't as disturbing as recent blowout losses, but it was, by the final buzzer, just one more setback in a season of losing. The Sixers (22-39) have lost five consecutive games and have dropped eight of their last 10. The Celtics, with Kevin Garnett scoring 22 points, improved to 39-21.

Not even a week of rest could prepare the Detroit Pistons for the hottest home team in the NBA. Kevin Garnett had 26 points and nine rebounds and Paul Pierce scored 22 points last night to lead Boston to an 88-79 victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final, the Celtics' 15th straight home win. Despite having just 1 day off after an epic Game 7 that eliminated Cleveland from the conference semifinals, Boston scored the first eight points...

Ray Allen found his shooting touch last night, just in time to put the Boston Celtics within one win of returning to the NBA Finals for the first time in more than 20 years. Allen scored 29, hitting a long two-pointer after Detroit came within one point with a minute left. He and Kevin Garnett then each made a pair of free throws down the stretch as the Celtics beat the Detroit Pistons, 106-102, to take a three-games-to-two lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Garnett scored 33 - his most in the playoffs this year.

BOSTON - Despite missing two frontcourt starters, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics came up big at home against the San Antonio Spurs yesterday afternoon. Pierce scored 35 points, and Ray Allen added 19 as the Celtics beat the Spurs, 98-90. Boston pulled off the feat despite the absence of superstar forward Kevin Garnett (abdominal strain) and center Kendrick Perkins (shoulder). "When you win a game - and I don't care who it is against and where it's at - with Kevin out, with Perk out, it's a significant win," Boston coach Doc Rivers said.

The Memphis Grizzlies' recent success at home has come against some of the league's top teams. And Zach Randolph has been playing like one of the league's top forwards. Randolph had 32 points and a career-high 24 rebounds to help the Grizzlies hold on for a 102-96 victory over the visiting Denver Nuggets yesterday. In the last 3 weeks, Memphis has claimed victories over Dallas, Cleveland and now the Nuggets, all of whom sit atop their respective divisions. "This builds our confidence up a lot," Randolph said.

Ray Allen's three-pointer with 1 minute, 20 seconds left in regulation gave Boston its first lead since the opening minutes as the Celtics beat the visiting Orlando Magic, 92-88, last night to take a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Stephon Marbury scored all of his 12 points in the fourth quarter, keeping the Celtics in the game after a lackluster 36 minutes that left them trailing by 14 with 8:49 to play. Orlando led 85-75 with 5:39 left, then Boston scored the next 13 points to open an 88-85 lead before Rashard Lewis' free throws with 7.3 seconds left.

Believe it or not, the 76ers might not be in the worst shape of all NBA franchises. The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have issues that rival the Sixers'. On Friday, the Nets became the league's first team to start 0-6 this year after losing to the previously winless Lakers, 104-98, at the Barclays Center. Brooklyn then boarded a plane to face the Bucks in Milwaukee on Saturday night. Meanwhile, the 1-4 Lakers face the New York Knicks on Sunday at Madison Square Garden. And they're not tanking like the Sixers.

THE BOSTON CELTICS like to have a lot of veterans for this very reason. With point guard Rajon Rondo on the bench after injuring his right ankle, Leandro Barbosa sparked a third-quarter run and ran the offense in the fourth as the Celtics held off the Utah Jazz, 98-93, on Wednesday night. "That's what we brought him in here for," said Boston captain Paul Pierce, who led the way with 23 points, including a pair of key free throws with 19.5 seconds to play. Reserves Jeff Green and Barbosa each scored 16 points for the Celtics, who won for the fifth time in six games.

Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green will have surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm and will miss the entire season, the team announced on Saturday. Green is scheduled for an operation on Monday. Doctors have told him the operation "should completely repair Green's condition and that he can expect to resume his NBA career next season," the Celtics said. If so, the timing of his training-camp exam - and the end of the NBA lockout - may have saved Green's life and helped the Celtics avert a tragedy like the 1993 death of Reggie Lewis, who died of heart problems on a practice court in the prime of his career.

MIAMI - Dwyane Wade knew his regular-season numbers against the Boston Celtics were lacking. He also knew that wouldn't matter in the playoffs. He was right: Game 1 of their anticipated series went to Wade and the Miami Heat. Wade scored 38 points on 14-of-21 shooting, James Jones set a Miami postseason record with 25 points off the bench, and the Heat beat Boston, 99-90, in Sunday's opener of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. "It's a big game. It's Game 1, at home," Wade said.

The Boston Celtics announced Wednesday that they signed 15-time NBA all-star Shaquille O'Neal to a two-year contract. With center Kendrick Perkins sidelined after knee surgery, the Celtics went after the 18-year veteran, who had been a free agent after spending last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. O'Neal joins veteran stars Paul Pierce , Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen on the team that lost the NBA Finals in seven games to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Detroit Pistons have re-signed 35-year-old center Ben Wallace to a two-year contract worth $1.9 million per season.

BOSTON - Like everything else in this frigid area, Willie Green froze. Paul Pierce launched a shot in the waning seconds that could have won the game, and the way the 76ers season has gone so far, a swish, a loss and a long trip home seemed to be in their immediate future. Pierce's shot instead fell off to the left of the rim, somehow landed in the hands of Ray Allen, who then launched an off-balance three pointer that also missed. Improbable final score: Sixers 98, Celtics 97. It was the first loss in 12 games for the Celtics, who dropped to 20-5, including a 1-4 mark in Friday night home games.
