BOSTON -- In the heyday of the New Big Three, when the Boston Celtics were winning the 2008 NBA title and going back to the finals two years later, there arose in the TD Garden a new tradition: Gino Time. When the Celtics were winning and the game was in hand by the final TV timeout, the arena would play a disco-era video of a shaggy man in a tight T-shirt that said "Gino." Players on the bench and fans in the stands would swivel their hips along with him to celebrate as the final seconds ticked off the clock. There hadnt been much Gino Time in Boston this season, now that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are in Brooklyn and Doc Rivers is in Los Angeles. Until the Cleveland Cavaliers came to town. "Nobodys told me about that," first-year coach Brad Stevens said after the Celtics scored 18 of the games first 20 points and coasted to a 103-86 victory over Cleveland on Friday night. "Maybe they thought we wouldnt have a game out of reach." Jeff Green scored 31 points, the most by a Boston player this season, and Jordan Crawford had his third career triple-double to lead the Celtics to their third victory in four games. It was their biggest margin of victory of the season, and the first time they have won at home with such a comfortable margin that the fans could frolic with "Gino." "They dont know about Gino," injured point guard Rajon Rondo, the only holdover from the two-time Eastern Conference champions, said in the locker room after watching the game in street clothes as he recovers from reconstructive knee surgery. "Weve got to get a couple more wins." Crawford had 11 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for Boston, which at 7-11 has the most wins in the Atlantic Division and is a half-game out of first place. Avery Bradley scored eight of his 21 points in the first quarter, when the Celtics jumped to an 18-2 lead. They maintained a double-digit edge for the rest of the game. "We got great defensive stops to begin the game with. Thats how we got that lead," Green said. "We are finally putting everything together. Weve had our ups and downs throughout the season ... but it was good to put an all-around good game together." Crawford had four points, four rebounds and three assists after one quarter. He said he asked Stevens to stay in the game so he could complete the triple-double, reaching the milestone on a pair of free throws with 94 seconds to play. "Im whispering in his ear," he said. "I appreciate it, though." Stevens said he was surprised to hear that Crawford had reached the milestone and called his performance "shockingly effective." "He had a triple-double? Crawford did? Holy smokes, I had no idea," he told reporters afterward, looking at the stat sheet to confirm it. "He had 11 rebounds? Jordan Crawford had 11 rebounds? ... Its good that our guards rebound. Our guards need to rebound to win." Dion Waiters scored 21 points and Kyrie Irving had 17 for the Cavaliers, who lost their fifth straight game and fell to 1-9 on the road this season. Cleveland scored just 10 points in the first quarter, its worst output for any quarter this season, and lost for the eighth time in nine games. "To me, its a work in progress. Its going to be that way the entire year," coach Mike Brown said. "But the one thing we can do is we can defend better, and we did not do a good job of that at all, especially in the first quarter." The Celtics scored 18 of the games first 20 points, upped the lead to 20 early in the second quarter and extended it to 25 in the third. Cleveland trailed by at least 10 points for all but the first 3:59 of the game. "They threw the first punch tonight and I feel like we laid down. ... They controlled the whole game," Waiters said. "Weve got to be men. Weve got to grow up. We cant just turn it around and think its going to be easy. This is a mans league, so at the end of the day weve got to bring it." Clevelands only sustained run came in the middle of the second quarter, when it went on a 16-6 run to cut a 20-point deficit to 10. Anthony Bennett hit a 3-pointer, Waiters also had one, and then Waiters added a three-point play to make it 45-35. But the Celtics scored the next eight points, including a 3-pointer and layup by Green. Notes: Waiters took a hard foul from Brandon Bass late in the third quarter. ...

They finally answered his call. Stephen Curry had 38 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, and the Warriors used a smothering defence to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 103-88 on Sunday night. "Just what the doctor ordered," Jackson said. Curry, the Western Conferences newly elected All-Star starting point guard, shot 13 of 23 from the floor while wearing shiny gold shoes to carry the offensive load. The Warriors did it all on defence together, though, building a 22-point lead midway through the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. Golden State outshot Portland 41.8 per cent to 33.7 per cent and forced 15 turnovers while committing only nine. It was a season low in points and shooting percentage and it tied the largest margin of defeat for the Blazers, who entered averaging an NBA-best 109.5 points. "Just the will to win," Curry said. "We understand thats been one of our problems — just letting teams kind of cake walk around on the offensive end doing whatever they want to do early in the game." Damian Lillard had 16 points and four assists, and Wesley Matthews scored 21 for the Blazers, who had a quick turnaround after beating Minnesota in Portland on Saturday night. The Blazers had not been held below 40 per cent shooting all season. The defeat equaled a 116-101 loss to Houston on Nov. 5 for Portlands most lopsided margin. "That was a rough game," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "The first half both teams played pretty well, but the second half we didnt have much going at the offensive end. Golden State did a nice job with its defence. It was just one of those nights where we just didnt have enough at the offensive end." David Lee added 17 points and 12 rebounds while playing with a sprained left shoulder, and Klay Thompson scored 17 for a Warriors team that had lost three straight at home. Jackson has been waiting for his team to correct its defensive deficiencies of late, even after victories. Golden State allowed an average of 92.8 points during a 10-game winning streak before dropping five off its last seven overall, allowing 108.dddddddddddd4 points in those contests, including an average of 115 in the five losses. The Warriors never let the Blazers get comfortable. LaMarcus Aldridge, who finished with 11 rebounds and 10 points on 2-of-14 shooting, didnt score until 2:18 remained in the second quarter. "Just one of those nights where I couldnt get going and I didnt find a rhythm," Aldridge said. And the only time Aldridge started to get going, the Warriors responded. Andrew Bogut got into a skirmish with Aldridge after the whistle in the third quarter, then Aldridge tossed the ball at the Warriors centre. Officials called a technical foul on both players. The Warriors responded with a 16-2 run, with Curry connecting from outside and Lee cleaning up on the inside. Golden State held a 76-67 lead entering the fourth quarter, when it quickly turned the game into a rout. "What I like is we paid attention to detail," Jackson said. "We didnt have any game-plan breakdown. We battled. We competed. We made multiple-effort plays and we continued it all night long." Golden State started the final quarter on a 12-2 run to take control. Lees layup put the Warriors up 91-69 with 7:18 remaining, leaving little drama late. Portland pulled to 94-85 on Matthews free throws with 2:56 to play. Curry then connected on a jumper and a 3-pointer sandwiched around a free throw by Lillard to send most of the sellout crowd of 19,596 heading to the exits early — and happy. Curry, who doesnt usually guard opposing point guards, checked Lillard most of the game and never let the Oakland native find his stroke. "We can score the ball, but it stinks to come in the locker room and you see everybody had big nights, we just isolate the offensive end but we end up losing and its all for nothing," Curry said. "Games like this when you get a win and figure out how to close it out and get stops, it makes what we can do as a team on the offensive end that much more special." NOTES: The Warriors improved to 20-4 this season when leading after three quarters. ... The teams have split two games this season after the Blazers won 113-101 in Oakland on Nov. 23. They meet two more times in Portland. Stitched NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys China China Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
