Back-up power: C's beat Raptors

Playing without injured starters Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo, the undermanned Celtics still found a way to beat the Toronto Raptors, 103-96, on Saturday night at TD Garden. Ray Allen scored a team-high 23 while Rasheed Wallace added 16 for the Celtics, who had six players in double figures. Kendrick Perkins added 14 points and 10 rebounds and Tony Allen replaced Rondo at point guard and scored 14 points and dished out seven assists. The win snapped Boston's three-game losing skid and ended Toronto's five-game winning streak. J.R. Giddens made his first career start for the Celtics and scored two points.

Pierce: Shooting for road trip

Paul Pierce spoke on Saturday night for the first time since having two surgeries to clean out a nasty infection in his right knee around Christmas and said he plans to be with the team on its upcoming road trip. Pierce, who was wearing a white circulatory wrap on his right knee, said the infection and subsequent pain came upon him quickly following the team's home win over Indiana on Dec. 22. "It was a situation I got home and I was sort of sitting back and relaxing and then sort of felt a slight pain in my knee and then over a 10-to-15-minute period, it just got worse and worse," Pierce said. "It went from just kind of hurting to sore to bad to extreme in like a 15-minute period, which was crazy. "I called [team trainer] Eddie Lacerte about 1:30 in the morning and he knows I never call him unless it's really bad. So, he came over to the house and checked it out. We went to the hospital that morning, doctor checked it out and...
