BOSTON -- Avery Bradley simply couldnt hold back that little smile. 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."

Justin Upton hit a three-run homer to continue another strong April, Ervin Santana earned his third win and the Atlanta Braves held off the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 on Friday night. Kimbrel gave up a leadoff single to Roger Bernadina and walked Zack Cozart to open the ninth. Kimbrel struck out Brayan Pena and Chris Heisey before earning his seventh save on Joey Vottos groundout. Freeman made a long stretch at first base for Chris Johnsons throw from third base on Heiseys groundball. Reds manager Bryan Price challenged first base umpire Vic Carapazzas ruling that Freemans foot remained on the bag. The call was confirmed, ending the game. "Freddie did a terrific job staying on the bag," said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. He acknowledged he was nervous about the challenge before seeing the replay on the video board "and I felt kind of relaxed." Price said that when looking across the field he thought he saw "a huge gap" between Freemans foot and the bag. He said he agreed with the confirmed out call after seeing the replay. "I had a chance to come up here and look at our own video, which is what theyre getting in New York, and it was a confirmed out call," Price said. "They got the call right in the end, which is what were looking for." Two Cincinnati players left the game with injuries. Third baseman Todd Frazier was pulled in the fifth with tightness in his left leg. Catcher Devin Mesoraco strained his left hamstring and stumbled after rounding third base in the seventh, before limping across home plate. Price said he was protecting Frazier, who had previous tightness in his groin. Santana (3-0) gave up four runs on nine hits in 6 2-3 innings. Following singles by B.J. Upton and Freddie Freeman off Homer Bailey (1-2) in the first inning, Justin Upton hit his team-leading sixth homer. He leads the team with 15 RBIs. &qquot;Weve seen him do this before and carry us for a while," Gonzalez said.dddddddddddd In 2013, Justin Upton led the majors with 12 homers in April, becoming the fastest player in Braves franchise history to reach the mark.

Freeman had three hits for Atlanta to shake a mini-slump. B.J. Upton, who was hitting .205, had one hit in his first game wearing prescription glasses. "Well see how the glasses work and if Ill keep them," he said. "I could see the ball better on both sides of the plate. It was good tonight." Bailey allowed five runs on nine hits in six innings. He allowed at least four earned runs for the fourth time in five starts this season and has a 6.15 ERA. The Braves increased their lead to 4-0 in the second on Jason Heywards RBI single.
