The Boston Celtics showed much more energy than the Houston Rockets in a 111-95 win last night. By the way, it was the Celtics playing the second game of back-to-backs and their fifth game in seven nights.

But it was a 32-13 third quarter, including a C's 15-0 run that changed the game.

Isaiah Thomas led with 23 points. Avery Bradley scored 21 and Jae Crowder added 16.

11 different Celtics players played at least 10 minutes.

Trevor Ariza had 19 for the slumping Rockets. Coach Kevin McHale, a former Celtics great, has his hands full with a struggling team.

The C's(6-4) return home to play the Dallas Mavs Wednesday night.
