Boston breeze through Orlando,105-84.

The in-transit Orlando Magic did what they could, but Hedo Turkoglu, Jameer Nelson, Al Harrington and Arron Affalo simply failed to overpower the visiting Celtics, which saw Kevin Garnett steamroll his way to 20+ points, scoring 18 of them in the 3rd quarter. The veteran's shooting and court vision was quite on track tonight, and so was Rajon Rondo, who finished with 11 points and 13 assists.

Despite lacking the typical flair of outside shooting, Boston rattled in a few from beyond the arc, courtesy of Fisher, Terry, Pierce, Kenyon Martin (who dipped in 20 for the second game in a row) and Josh Howard.

Orlando stayed competitive in the first half, but eventually threw in the towel, ultimately giving up on defense and allowing Boston to stroll into the lane, despite narrowing Boston's lead to single digits in to kick off the 3rd quarter.
