BRING ON L.A.
Paul Pierce scored 27 points, Ray Allen had 17 and Kevin Garnett added 16 to lift the Celtics to an 89-81 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. Boston, which locked up with Detroit many times in the 1980s, will now rekindle another classic series in the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Pistons were eliminated on their home court for the first time during a six-year run that included a trip to the conference finals each year and the 2004 title. Boston entered the series without a road win in the postseason, then beat Detroit on its home court twice to win the grueling series.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
Chauncey Billups scored a playoff-high 29 points for the Pistons in an 89-81 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night.

SPEAKING
``It's kind of surreal. Probably hasn't even hit me yet because we haven't slept in about four days, going on five days now. Going to the finals, I'm just hoping to get some sleep.'' - Kevin Garnett, after the Celtics defeated the Pistons 89-81 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night. The Celtics will play the Lakers in the NBA finals.
