Paul Pierce scored 28 points, Ray Allen added 27 and the pair accounted for all nine points in overtime, lifting the Boston Celtics to a scrappy 102-97 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
Allen and Pierce were without the final member of the Big Three, Kevin Garnett, down the stretch after he fouled out midway through overtime, but still managed to give the Celtics their sixth straight win over the Bucks.
The Celtics were playing the second game of a back-to-back on the road, after a 94-85 loss to the Nuggets at home Friday night. The Celtics did this earlier in the season, losing to the Pacers on the second night of a back-to-back in Indiana. It looks as if the schedule makers aren’t very nice.
Boston next plays Tuesday at home against the new-look Knicks.
