NBA: Boston 105, Milwaukee 90

April 11, 2010 at 1:16 AM   |   Comments

MILWAUKEE, April 11 (UPI) -- Paul Pierce pumped in 24 points and Ray Allen 21 Saturday as the Boston Celtics downed Milwaukee 105-90 in a game filled with technical fouls.

Allen was a perfect 11-of-11 at the free throw line while Rajon Rondo connected for 15 points and distributed 10 assists in the victory, which was a possible preview of a first-round playoff match-up.

Boston retained the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and the Bucks held onto fifth, a half-game in front of Miami.

With 2:22 left in the contest, Pierce and Milwaukee's Jerry Stackhouse shoved each other and were given technical fouls, triggering a tirade by Bucks head Coach Scott Skiles. Skiles earned a pair of technical fouls and was tossed out of the game.

John Salmons led Milwaukee with 21 points and Brandon Jennings contributed 19 as the Bucks saw their four-game winning streak snapped.
