Boston Celtics Team Report – January 14
=== Boston Celtics Team Report – January 14 ===
(Sports Network) – Boston saw its three-game win streak come to an end
Tuesday night, as it fell 111-103 to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Ricky Davis scored a season-high 33 points to lead the Celtics, while Paul
Pierce added 22 points and eight assists.
Mike James had 15 points and Mark Blount scored 12 points with a game-high 13
boards in the loss. Boston has lost nine of its last 10 at Milwaukee.
The difference in the game was the free throw disparity, as the Bucks
outscored Boston, 31-15, at the charity stripe. It didn’t help that the
Celtics turned the ball over 21 times.
Boston forward Vin Baker dressed but didn’t play in his first game following a
three-game club-imposed suspension. It is unknown when Celtics coach Jim
O’Brien will utilize Baker again this season.
The Celtics return to the hardwood Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets
at the FleetCenter.
