Boston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk, who retreated to the locker room with a team doctor late in the first half, is not on the bench to start the second half. Fellow big man Amir Johnson is wearing a wrap around his back and did not start the second half with Boston going small with Marcus Smart playing alongside Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, and Jared Sullinger.

Marcus Smart and Isaiah Thomas with 13 points apiece to lead five Celtics in double figures for scoring. Clippers shot 57.1 percent overall and 60 percent beyond 3-point arc.

Clippers 37, Celtics 33 (end 1st): Old friend Paul Pierce hit a couple of early 3-pointers and DeAndre Jordan added 11 points (making 3 of 4 free throws, even when the Celtics went to Hack-a-Jordan late in the frame). Jared Sullinger with 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting to pace Boston.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Paul Pierce on if he ever truly considered the Celtics as free agent this summer: "The Celtics were a rebuilding team. Young and up-and-coming. I think my career here ran its course. I had a great career here, 15 years. What more could you ask for? I was able to win a championship here. I've had my fun."

Don't hurry back, Blake ...

Blake Griffin has been out since Dec. 26 and won't be returning anytime soon, thanks to the Jan. 23 incident in which he broke his hand punching a Clippers staffer. After he heals from that, he'll serve a four-game suspension before returning to the court. Surprisingly, the Clippers have been markedly better without him.
