We're going streaking!

Seven Celtics topped double figures in scoring and Boston won this game going away.

Jared Sullinger came out of the gates on fire, scoring in bunches in the first quarter and punishing their bigs in the paint. He finished with a double double and added 2 big blocks as well.

Marcus Smart's shot was falling tonight, he hit 3 of his 5 three pointers.  Jerebko added his own sweet shooting, going 3 for 3 from downtown.

Kelly Olynyk was aggressive again, in particular in the 4th quarter.  His slow motion drives into the paint are a thing of beauty.

Evan Turner did a little bit of everything, including hitting a buzzer beater at the half.

I haven't even mentioned Isaiah Thomas or Jae Crowder yet (14 and 15 points respectively).

Seemed like everyone contributed something and the Celtics really turned up the pressure in the 2nd half, going on a 24-4 run that put the game out of reach.  You know it is a good game when Tommy is just belly laughing with joy after a play.

The Celtics travel down to Orlando to face this same team again in a couple of days, so the Magic might be a little extra motivated to get some revenge.

This one is in the books though, and that's 5 straight wins for the Celtics.  Not too shabby.
