Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Jon Barry's stellar fourth quarter sank the team that drafted him. Barry scored 15 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter while Yao Ming added 23 as the Houston Rockets held off the Boston Celtics, 97-94, for their fourth consecutive win here. A 12-year veteran, Barry made 6-of-7 shots in the final period - including three 3-pointers - against the Celtics, who used the 21st pick in the 1992 draft on Barry but dealt his rights to Milwaukee. "If I had to worry about every former team I was on, I'd run my head into a wall," Barry said. "As you know, I've been around. I just like it in here. I've had some nice games here where I feel very comfortable out on the floor and the basket looks good to me and tonight they went in and I'm glad it happened." The Celtics used a 12-0 run to cap a 23-6 spurt and take a 63-57 lead on Mark Blount's jumper with 4:23 remaining in the third period. But Houston closed the quarter with 10-2 run to take a 67-65 lead into the fourth quarter. Barry then carried the Rockets. The shooting guard hit Houston's first four shots of the period, capped off by his third straight 3-pointer with nine minutes left, putting Houston up, 87-68. "Anytime you start making shots, you've got to get stops on the other end and we were doing that," Barry said. "We got into a little bit of scoring duel at the end, but to get our 10-point lead, we were getting stops and we were able to hold on." Barry's shooting took pressure off Tracy McGrady, who was fighting a sore back and did not take a shot in the fourth quarter. "I knew I was able to relax because I was on the bench and we were only up one or two points and when he got going, it put us up 10 points," said McGrady, who scored 16 points. "I felt comfortable through the game that if he could get shots, he'd be able to knock them down and that's what happened." The Celtics rallied behind reserve Ricky Davis, who scored 17 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter on 7-of-9 shooting. "It's fun to be on the other side of the spectrum," said Pierce of Davis' fourth-quarter exploits. "Especially in the fourth quarter, when we got it going, he rolled the hot hand. He kept saying, 'Paul, come on man.' And I said, 'No, you're the high man, we're riding you out.' He carried us." With Houston leading, 93-92, on a free throw by guard Bob Sura, Davis bounced a shot off the back of the iron with 24 seconds left. After a pair of free throws by McGrady with 17 seconds left, Paul Pierce had a chance to tie the game, but his off-balance 3-pointer hit the side of the rim with just over nine seconds to go. "I thought we could've attacked the basket at the end, even with 17 seconds left," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "I didn't think we needed a three. Paul had a short guy (Bob Sura) on him so he took it and I'll live with that because he's one of our 3-point shooters." Pierce scored 21 points for the Celtics (21-24), who dropped one-half game behind first-place Philadelphia in the weak Atlantic Division.
