Well, that was the most comfortable road win the Celtics will probably ever have this season. The lead changed only once in the game, and the Celtics sealed the victory by the end of the second quarter against the now 2-22 76ers. It should be noted that the Celtics were without Marcus Bros, but then again against an opponent like the 76ers that wouldn't really matter.

The star of the night for the Celtics was Kelly Olynyk with 30 points and 9 rebounds. In fact the Celtics bench outscored the starters 61-44. Other notable performances came from Evan Turner (12 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists) and Brandon Bass (14 points, 5 rebounds). On the other hand, Avery Bradley, who had missed the previous game with flu-like symptoms, had 15 points but was 1-11 from downtown. That was not an issue in a game when the Celtics easily handled their opponents though.

The Celtics now rank 10th in the Eastern Conference and will host the Magic on Wednesday.

Note: The quote in the title comes from Jared Sullinger, who finished the night with just 5 points but 11 rebounds.
