The Celtics  beat the Houston Rockets , 90-89, when Gabe Pruitt  banked in a jumper with 6.6 seconds remaining to improve to 2-1 in the preseason. But that was hardly the story of a game that featured Ron Artest  driving Paul Pierce  the floor on a drive to the basket in the first quarter, a Tracy McGrady  elbow to the ribs of rookie Bill Walker  and McGrady and Eddie House  almost going at it after exchanging words in the second quarter.
Here’s what some of the Celtics had to say about not backing down afterward.
