House Money

Celtics backup guard states case for All-Star 3-point contest

(Continued)

House smiled sheepishly as he returned from his shower. So money, he doesn't even know it.

Celts box

Score: Boston 119, Sacramento 100

Attendance: 18,624

Stats of the day: Eight. The number of 3-pointers Eddie House hit. He finished with a game-high 28 points. House is shooting 41 percent from downtown.

Is that necessary? Sacramento's Brad Miller stared down the Celtics bench and shook his head after hitting a second-half jumper. The Kings were down by 20.

Injury update: Boston's Brian Scalabrine will be sidelined for 7-10 days after suffering his second concussion in three days at practice Tuesday. Tony Allen returned from a sprained ankle last night and scored 10 points.

Rondo'd: Another stellar game from point guard Rajon Rondo, who scored 24 points and dished out nine assists.

Big 3 report: Kevin Garnett (14 points, 8 rebounds), Paul Pierce (8 points, 8 assists) and Ray Allen (12 points, 4 assists) didn't need to be super heroes against the lowly Kings.

Streaking: Boston (38-9) has now won nine straight games.

Up next: Tomorrow at Detroit, 7:30 p.m.
