AUBURN HILLS, MI From CNNSi  (By: Tom Pace, Talk of the Town) BREAKING NBA NEWS: 5-31-08  The Boston Celtics returned as NBA East Champs, downing the Detroit Pistons 89-81 tonight.  Closing the door on an old nemesis, the Celtics opened the door to a classic rivalry against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Tonight, in Auburn Hills, CNNSi reports that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce walked together, sporting black hats with green four-leaf clovers, and tried to soak up the moment when both superstars became conference champions for the first time.
''My heart is beating faster,'' Pierce said.

Someone asked Garnett if he needed a water. ''I'm good,'' Garnett said. KG and the Big Three certainly are. 

Pierce scored 27 points, Ray Allen had 17 and Garnett added 16 to lift the Boston Celtics to an 89-81 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. 

The Celtics, who locked up with Detroit many times in the 1980s, will now rekindle another classic series in the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers .

''It's kind of surreal,'' Garnett said. ''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.''

After playing two Game 7s, the Celtics will get a needed break before hosting Kobe Bryant and the Lakers on Thursday night, June 5th.
