Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Paul Pierce continues to power the Boston Celtics on their best West Coast road trip in more than a decade. Pierce had 31 points and 12 assists and Walter McCarty scored a season-high 23 points as the Celtics snapped a six-game road losing streak against the Golden State Warriors with a 125-117 win. With Pierce matching a career high with his 17th double-double of the season, the Celtics posted their first win here since February 15, 1995. McCarty's 3-pointer in the final second of the second quarter gave the Celtics a 20-point halftime lead. Rookie J.R. Bremer also hit from beyond the arc with 8:21 to go in the third period as Boston grabbed its biggest lead, 80-56. McCarty and Bremer combined to make 11 of Boston's 14 3-pointers. The Warriors chipped away and got within 109-105 on a 3-pointer by reserve Bob Sura with 3:11 remaining in the fourth period. "They really put a small lineup out there to try to trap and try to make things happen, but for the most part I thought we kept our composure," Pierce said. "You know they're going to make a run and once the crowd got behind them, they made a few threes." Pierce converted a three-point play and nailed a jumper before fouling out with 55 seconds left. But the Celtics committed a season-low four turnovers and improved to 4-1 on their season-high six-game road trip. "That definitely was a key for us. We didn't over-force things, we always made the extra pass," Pierce said. "That's going to be key for us, and coach talked about it. When guys step up and if we can do that all year long, maybe we'll score 100 points more often." Boston started a West Coast trip 4-1 for the first time since the 1990-91 season. "Coming out here and putting some victories on the board is very, very important for any team back east," Celtics coach Jim O'Brien said. "Anytime you shoot (almost) 50 percent, you'll probably win. But it's all keyed on passing and ability to penetrate. And I thought we did an outstanding job of finding the open man." Antawn Jamison scored a season-high 39 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and Gilbert Arenas finished two rebounds shy of a triple-double for Golden State, which has lost two in a row following a three-game winning streak. "We always believe," Jamison said. "I've been here a long time and we've done some tremendous things, and we've been down and we've been used to playing from (behind). ... No matter what the situation is, we feel we can come back and we can win." Boston improved to 14-14 away from the FleetCenter and joined Indiana and Detroit as the only Eastern Conference teams with at least a .500 road record. The contest was knotted, 32-32, less than a minute into the second period when Antoine Walker - playing his 500th NBA game - contributed 11 points during the Celtics' 20-8 run. The All-Star forward's driving layup with 5:41 to go in the quarter gave Boston a 52-40 lead. "I've been in that position many times - when a team is up 20 points on you and you come back and you just run out of gas right at the door," said Walker, who had 17 points and seven assists. "So sometimes it just happens and, by building a big lead, we had a cushion there." The Celtics owned a 10-point advantage when Tony Battie, who played just four minutes in the previous four games while battling the flu, dunked to spark a 17-7 surge over the final 4 1/2 minutes of the half. Jamison collected 12 points in the third quarter and 13 in the fourth to pace the Warriors' comeback. The North Carolina product made a jumper to close Golden State's deficit to 95-82 after three periods. The Warriors trailed by 14 points midway through the fourth quarter when Sura made a pair from the line to spark a 10-0 burst over a 2:45 span and reduce the deficit to 109-105. "We do a tremendous job of not giving up and finding a way to get back into the game," Jamison said. "But every time we try to take the nail out of the coffin, they got the hammer."
