Herald Paul Pierce provides boost

Jermaine O'Neal, in a sense, made his own debut. After scoring eight points, total, in his first three games, the Celtics center broke out last night with 19 points on 7-of-9 shooting and seven rebounds.

Brandon Bass produced another gem off the bench with 17 points, matching Ray Allen's night.

Overall the Celtics shot 52.2 percent and, with solid defense against their winless opponent, held Detroit to 43 percent.
