The Boston Celtics avenged their Saturday loss to Milwaukee and beat the Bucks at the Garden 108-100 to take over the top spot in the Atlantic division.Jordan Crawford led all scorers with 25 points and dished out 5 assists while Jeff Green added 18 points and Brandon Bass 16.

Boston improves to 8-12 but in a division where every team is below .500 it is good enough to take over 1st place, something that never happened last year when the Celtics still had Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
