The Boston Celtics were down by more than 25 points at one point in Monday's loss, but in Game Two they returned the favor by beating the Orlando Magic 112-94.

This was a very important win for Boston.  Had they lost, they would need to go into Orlando, down two games to nothing, and try to win two games on the road.

Now, with the series tied at one apiece, the C's have the opportunity to regain home-court advantage by beating the Magic on Friday night.

Not only did the C's destroy Orlando, but Boston did it without Paul Pierce playing well. Pierce had just three points in 15 minutes of sporadic playing time, thanks to early foul trouble.

Eddie House was the game's leading scorer, as he had 31 points—including hitting all four shots from beyond the arc.

Brian Scalabrine had another big game off the bench, hitting two three-pointers in an eight-point effort.

Rajon Rondo played another great game, as he had 15 points, 18 assists, and 11 rebounds, giving him another triple-double.

Ray Allen had 22 points, Kendrick Perkins had 16, and Glen Davis had 13.
