Finley had his best game off the Boston bench, making 6-of-7 shots from the floor. The Pistons, already without starters Rodney Stuckey and Ben Wallace, lost sharpshooter Tayshaun Prince when he was kneed in the back by teammate Jason Maxiell midway through the first quarter. The Celtics are off Tuesday before hosting the Knicks at TD Garden on St. Patrick's Day Wednesday. For more visit the Green Street blog.
