BOSTON -- Avery Bradley simply couldnt hold back that little smile. Logan Forsythe Rays Jersey . Bradley scored 24 points as the Boston Celtics beat the Orlando Magic for the second time in four days, 120-105 on Monday night. When asked if he was surprised the Magic kept leaving him open for mid-range jumpers, Bradley had a slight grin before saying, "A little. But once it started going, I was praying it would keep falling, and it did." Bradley hit 10 of 15 shots, pairing with Jordan Crawford to provide a solid backcourt duo that carried the Celtics to their fourth straight win after they opened the season with four losses under first-year coach Brad Stevens. Crawford, who took over the point when Stevens moved Bradley to the shooting guard spot, had 16 points and 10 assists with no turnovers in 32 1/2 minutes. "Yeah, theyre playing really well together," Stevens said. Kelly Olynyk and Jeff Green each also had 16 points for Boston. The Celtics shot 60 per cent (51 for 85) against an Orlando team that entered the night with the NBAs second-best field goal percentage defence. "One of those days," Stevens said. "You know youre going to get jump shots because thats what they force you into. Normally, those are inefficient shots." Arron Afflalo had 18 points and seven assists, Victor Oladipo scored 17 points and Nikola Vucevic had 15 points and 10 boards for Orlando, which dropped its 16th straight road game. "We did a poor job tonight," Magic forward Maurice Harkless said. "They just made shots tonight, so you have to give them credit. We just didnt find a way to stop them." It was Bostons 10th straight win in the series, dating back to the Magics victory at home on Christmas in 2010. The Celtics won 91-89 at Orlando on Friday night. The Magic never seemed to be able to slow down Bostons offence. "It was pretty much all game long," Afflalo said. "I really dont feel like we were really in the game at any point just simply because we couldnt get stops. You know to win on the road you have to get stops." The Celtics led by nine at the half and took complete control early in the third behind Bradleys scoring. "Weve grown a lot offensively," Bradley said. "At the beginning of the year, it was stagnant. Now were moving the ball a lot." Bradley nailed his first four shots in the quarter to go along with two free throws, pushing Bostons lead to 75-64 midway into the third. The Celtics extended it to 87-72 on Courtney Lees 3-pointer from the left corner with 53 seconds left in the quarter and led by 13 heading to the fourth. They didnt let the Magic back into it in the final quarter, opening a 98-80 lead on Greens jumper from the left corner with 8 1/2 minutes to play. Lees putback gave Boston its first 20-point lead of the night, 104-84, with 6:35 left. The Magic got no closer than 12 points the rest of the way. Boston shot 62.5 per cent in the first half and held a 59-50 halftime edge. Behind a strong shooting start in the opening quarter, the Celtics led 31-25 at the end of one. Boston connected on 13 of 19 attempts in the quarter. After the Magic pulled to 39-37 midway into the second, the Celtics went on a 16-6 run over the ensuing 5 minutes en route to their halftime advantage. NOTES: Stevens didnt want to talk about how well his teams defence has been just yet before the game. "Im the wrong person to talk to about that," he said before saying, "it could be a lot better." The Celtics entered the night allowing the sixth-fewest points per game. ... The game was the nightcap of a NHL/NBA doubleheader in TD Garden. The Bruins beat Tampa Bay 3-0 in the afternoon. ... The Celtics held a moment of silence for victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. ... Orlando was holding teams to 40.3 per cent shooting before Monday. Brad Boxberger Rays Jersey . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. Logan Forsythe Jersey . Napoli beat high-flying Hellas Verona 3-0 to keep up the pressure on the top two while AC Milan had another disappointing night as four goals from teenage forward Domenico Berardi saw relegation-threatened Sassuolo come back from two goals down to win 4-3. http://www.theraysfansshop.com/Matt-Moore-Jersey/ . Cincinnati has lost back-to-back games in overtime, wasting a chance to take a commanding lead in their division.Claudio Ranieri has ditched the tinkering and has been forced to become a ruthless manager at Leicester, according to his former player Graeme Le Saux. Ranieri stands on the brink of a remarkable Premier League crown with his side requiring three points from their last three matches to land the title and complete their astonishing transformation from relegation favourites to champions. Mahrez: Title race not over Leicesters Riyad Mahrez says Premier League title race not done yet The Foxes could capture the Premier League title against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 1pm. Graeme Le Saux insists Ranieris eccentric manner is merely a front The Italian gained his infamous Tinkerman nickname for his liking of squad rotation during a three-and-a-half year spell at Chelsea.And few took Ranieri seriously when he was appointed at the King Power Stadium last summer having been sacked as manager of Greece in 2014. Hes a very shrewd operator and he wouldnt shirk aa big decision. Corey Dickerson Jersey. Behind the smile theres a ruthless football manager, a guy who is happy to make big decisions. Graeme Le Saux on Claudio Ranieri But former Chelsea left-back Le Saux insists Ranieris eccentric manner is merely a front, behind which lies a shrewd and ruthless operator.Thats all veneer, dont be fooled, thats part design, said Le Saux. Hes a very shrewd operator and he wouldnt shirk a big decision. Behind the smile theres a ruthless football manager, a guy who is happy to make big decisions.At Leicester he hasnt had to, the team picks itself. Hes not had to deal with dropping big names and moving people on. Once hes established his team and his shape, hes been the polar opposite to what we were calling him, the Tinkerman. Souness: Foxes defy logic Leicester winning Premier League title defies logic, says Graeme Souness Did he tinker too much? Yes, and its frustrating as a player when you work on a system all week and on the day of the game he changes it. But thats not a criticism of who he is now.When he took over I wasnt prepared to bring those flaws out because it was 12 years since I worked with him, so I thought give him a chance.
