* Kevin Garnett played a mere 27 minutes and shot just 38.5 percent from the floor.
* Ray Allen didn't hit a 3-pointer ... for the second straight game.
* Paul Pierce disappeared for pretty much all but the first three minutes of the first and fourth quarters.
* Rasheed Wallace and Tony Allen combined to produce 2-of-9 shooting with six points over 40 minutes of action.
* The Lakers shot a better percentage from the floor (45.1-44.6 percent).
* Boston endured two fourth-quarter technical fouls, in a frame it trailed to start no less.
* Kobe Bryant hit six trifectas and scored over 30 points.
None of that inspires winning basketball on a regular basis, but the Celtics found a way to win Game 4. Maybe that further speaks to what Glen Davis and Nate Robinson did on the floor.
