Rondo carries Celtics past Magic, 109-92

BOSTON (AP) When the Boston Celtics started playing better defense, the game swung in their favor. It didn't hurt that they hardly missed any shots down the stretch, either.

Rajon Rondo had 13 points, 15 assists and seven rebounds to lead balanced scoring that carried the Celtics to a 109-92 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.

"I think we just turned up the heat," forward Jared Sullinger said when asked what turned the game around.
