Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Paul Pierce paced Boston with 26 points and Jeff Green added 18 off the bench as the Celtics stayed hot at home with a 94-86 victory over the road-weary Golden State Warriors on Friday at TD Garden.

Kevin Garnett chipped in with seven points and took sole possession of 10th place on the all-time rebounding list by hauling in 13 boards in Boston's eighth straight home victory.

Stephen Curry wasn't nearly as deadly with his shooting on Friday in following his 54-point performance against the Knicks two days earlier. He scored 25 points, but shot just 6-for-22 from the field in the Warriors' third straight setback of a four-game East Coast road trip.

David Lee returned from a one-game suspension and totaled 10 points and 19 rebounds in the loss.
