|03.05.13 at 9:48 pm ET|
The Celtics took a step toward turning over a new leaf with a convincing road victory Tuesday night, beating the Sixers, 109-101, in Philadelphia. It improved the Celts to 11-18 away from TD Garden this season, and marked just the second time Boston has claimed back-to-back road victories.
The Celts, who had lost six of their last seven games in Philly, slowly built their lead, having held a 53-46 halftime lead. While the Sixers had been slumping, losing eight of their last nine games, had claimed 17 of their 23 victories this season at home.
Leading the way for the Celtics’ offense was Avery Bradley, who scored 22 points on 10-of-15 shooting from the floor.
Contributing off the bench for the C’s, who finished shooting 50 percent from the floor, were Jeff Green (16 points), and newly-acquired Jordan Crawford, who added 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the floor. The C’s also moved to 18-4 when scoring over 100 points.
The Celtics did commit a season-high 22 turnovers, this after turning the ball over just twice in the first quarter.
