|11.29.13 at 9:58 pm ET|
Jeff Green — and the Cleveland Cavaliers — were going to make sure the Celtics didn’t lose their fifth straight game at the TD Garden.
Green led a Celtics attack that saw Brad Stevens’ team shoot 50 percent from the floor on the way to a 103-86 win over the struggling Cavs. The Celts’ forward netted 31 points.
The win marked the first time in 10 games the Celts scored at least 100 points.
It was Cleveland’s fifth straight loss, and eighth in its last nine games.
The Celtics, who improve to 7-11, jumped out to a 28-10 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. By the time halftime rolled around the hosts had a 55-39 advantage.
Besides Green, the Celtics also got stellar performances from Avery Bradley (9-of-11 from the floor, 21 points) and Brandon Bass, who netted 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting fro the field.
Jordan Crawford also notched his third career triple-double, scoring 11 points while coming away with 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
Kyrie Irving starred for the Cavaliers, finishing with 17 points.
