Doug Benc

The Celtics won against Orlando, keeping pace with the rest of their division.

The Boston Celtics beat the Orlando Magic on Sunday afternoon116-110 in overtime, narrowing escaping what would have been a bad loss on the road.

Boston is 8-6 on the year, but hardly looking like a team to be reckoned with. Against Orlando, the Celtics were bailed out by Kevin Garnett, who scored 24 points, and Rajon Rondo's 16 assists.

Knicks 121, Pistons 100: After dropping two straight games in Texas, New York came home Sunday and put a pounding on struggling Detroit. The Knicks were paced by 29 points from Carmelo Anthony, despite his six turnovers. Steve Novak also scored 18 in the win.

76ers 104, Suns 101: Philadelphia won on Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center, beating Phoenix. The 76ers were led by Jrue Holiday, who scored 33 points en route to the victory. After starting slow, Philadelphia is now 8-6 and tied with Boston for third in the Atlantic Division.
