Celtics 96, Bucks 92

Paul Pierce, Celtics get even with Bucks

MILWAUKEE — Their response was heartening after Friday’s disappointing loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics chipped away at the Milwaukee Bucks all evening, waiting for their offense to unleash, and it finally happened.

The offensively challenged Celtics scored 32 fourth-quarter points and Jeff Green (12 points) showed signs of snapping out of his season-opening slump on Saturday night. As a result, the Celtics reached .500 (3-3) with their most impressive win of the season, 96-92, at Bradley Center.
