Tayshaun Prince hit a 3-pointer -- Detroit's second in 18 attempts -- but the Celtics clinched the game from the line.
NOTES: Paul Pierce returned after missing three games with a sprained thumb, but Kendrick Perkins (flu-like symptoms) missed the game. ... Prince left late in the third quarter after badly twisting his left ankle, but returned midway through the fourth. ... Jerebko, playing on his 23rd birthday, was the Eastern Conference's rookie of the month for February. ... Rondo reached double figures in assists for the seventh straight game, the longest streak by a Celtic since Tiny Archibald did it in seven straight games in 1981-82.
