Last night at TD Banknorth Garden in Boston:

By the numbers

4 3-pointers made by forward Antawn Jamison, matching a career high.

Key to the game

Boston’s Paul Pierce was just 5-for-13 from the free throw line.

Seen and Heard

Former Eleanor Roosevelt standout Delonte West has found a home in Boston.

The 24th pick in the 2004 draft — who grew up in the shadow of Capital Centre and used to walk to Bullets games — is having a tremendous second NBA season.

West, who made his 39th start of the season last night, came into last night’s game against the Wizards on a roll. Over his last 17 games West was averaging 14.3 points on 59.1 percent shooting from the field and 59.2 percent from behind the 3-point line.

“It just shows how hard work can pay off,” said West, who spent most of his rookie season coming off the bench behind Gary Payton. “The key is that you have to be patient about it and you can’t rush anything, because nothing in this league comes quickly.

Among second-year guards West is third overall in scoring (11.3), first in rebounds (4.2), and third in assists (4.2).
