Glen Davis Big for the Boston Celtics


In one of the top regular-season matchups in years, an unlikely player was the difference.

Just like the last time Boston played Detroit.

Rookie Glen Davis scored a career-high 20 points, giving the Celtics’ Big Three a huge lift in a 92-85 win over Detroit on Saturday night in a marquee game that lived up to its billing.

For the first time this season, the Celtics’ leading scorer wasn’t Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce or Ray Allen.

"They were stopping me and stepping up against Ray and Garnett," Pierce said. "And, that left Baby open." [Yahoo! Sports]
