Pierce: 'I'm probably at about 83.7 percent'

BOSTON -- After leading the Celtics to a pair of victories against potential playoff teams, captain Paul Pierce looks more and more like the player he's been for 13 NBA seasons in Boston -- before a heel injury that forced him to miss most of training camp and play his way back into shape during the first quarter of the lockout-shortened season.

"I still have a little soreness after the game, but I'm pretty close [to 100 percent]," said Pierce, who totaled 28 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in Friday night's 94-87 win over the Pacers. "I'm probably at about 83.7 percent."

Including Thursday night's 27-point comeback against the Magic in Orlando, Pierce amassed 52 points, 18 assists and 16 rebounds in less than 30 hours -- his best two-game stretch of the Celtics season.

"I'm getting there," added Pierce. "I'm really getting used to the soreness of playing. I'm getting used to the back-to-backs...

BU falls in first-place battle vs. Stony Brook

Boston University's Darryl Partin scored a game-high 21 points Friday night, but the visiting Terriers fell short against Stony Brook, 66-57, in a battle for first place in the America East Conference.

Bryan Dougher scored 18 points for Stony Brook (13-7, 8-1), which squandered a 13-point second-half lead but rebounded to close the game on a 19-6 run.

D.J. Irving contributed seven points and five assists for BU (11-12, 7-2).

BU trailed 37-33 at the half despite hitting 7-of-9 treys and shooting 59 percent overall. The deficit reached 13 (47-34) with 14 minutes left. That's when the Terriers embarked on a 17-0 run, fueled by seven points from Partin. A fastbreak layup by Partin (off a Matt Griffin pass) with nine minutes left put BU ahead by a point. After almost three minutes without either team scoring, Travis Robinson canned 3-pointer with just over six minutes remaining that gave BU a 51-47 lead.

Stony Brook answered with a 13-3...

Celtics get to .500 with win over Pacers

The Celtics returned to the .500 level with a 94-87 win over the Pacers on Friday night at the Garden. The win capped off a remarkable week for the Celtics who swept two games from the Magic and beat a Pacers team that had dealt them two crushing defeats on the second night of a back-to-back. The Celtics have now won four games in a row and five of their last six since starting the season with a 4-8 record.

They opened up an eight-point halftime lead thanks to a tremendous defensive effort, but with the score tied at 46-all in the third quarter, Paul Pierce shifted into high gear making five of six shots as the Celtics regained control of the game. Pierce scored 17 of his 28 points in the third quarter and had yet another huge game with 10 rebounds and eight assists.

Mickael Pietrus added 13 points starting in place of Ray Allen and Brandon Bass had 12 and six rebounds starting in place of Jermaine O'Neal. Rajon Rondo and Keyon Dooling also missed...

Rivard leads Harvard to rout of Yale

Last season Harvard lost two one-point games at Yale's Lee Amphitheater: one to the Bulldogs that cost the Crimson an outright league title and the other to Princeton that cost them a trip to the NCAA tournament.

On Friday night, Harvard made sure there would be no heartbreaking finish. Laurent Rivard scored 18 points and the Crimson routed Yale, 65-35, to remain unbeaten in league play.

Steve Moundou-Missi added 10 points for Harvard (17-2, 3-0 Ivy), which led 30-19 at the half and was never threatened in the second 20 minutes.

Greg Mangano led the way for Yale (12-5, 2-1) with 17 points. No teammate had more than four points as Harvard's defense made life miserable for the Bulldogs, who shot 32 percent and turned over the ball 22 times. Yale was held to less than half its average of 75.4 points per game.

Harvard is back in action Saturday (6 p.m.) at Brown.

Rondo, Allen, O'Neal, Dooling out for C's

The Celtics will once again be without three starters when they play the Pacers on Friday night. Rajon Rondo will miss his fifth straight game with a sprained right wrist, while Ray Allen is also out with a sprained ankle and Jermaine O'Neal has a bone bruise on his left knee. Additionally, Keyon Dooling has a hip pointer after he fell hard on the floor in his return from a knee injury on Thursday.

O'Neal said the swelling in his knee has gone down and he hopes to be able to play on Sunday. Allen could also play Sunday if things go well in a workout on Saturday.

"I wanted to play [Friday,]" Allen said. "I shot today and I felt pretty good shooting but I still have a little clogginess in my left angle. I think it's a little weak."

Allen did not travel to Orlando and was with his wife Shannon who delivered a son, Wystan Ryan on Thursday.
