Damian Lillard scored a franchise-record 34 second-half points on his way to a 41-point, seven-rebound and six-assist night in a 128-114 win over the Magic.

Boston managed to rip off the rout despite 13 combined points from Kyrie Irving, Al Horford and Jayson Tatum. The C's also connected on four of their 10 3-point attempts. Daniel Theis had 17 points and eight rebounds, Gordon Hayward supplied 15 points and Terry Rozier added 14.

Detroit kept its flawless record intact with a 110-103 victory on Thursday over the winless Cleveland Cavaliers, who were missing their best player, Kevin Love. He missed his first seven shots, including four from 3-point range.

The Pistons shot a terrible 18 percent (7-of-37) from 3-point range, while the C's shined from beyond the arc at a 41 percent clip.




The Celtics looked sharp in the first quarter, which concluded with the visitors holding a 30-21 lead.

While he's still quicker and lighter on his feet than plenty of power forwards, Griffin has started to rely on his basketball IQ. three-point shooting (65.2 percent shooting from three to start the season) and passing ability to dominate games.

Last season, the Cavaliers went 3-1 against Detroit, demolishing the Pistons in their first game in the new arena and outscoring them by an average of 14.0 points in the four-game set. He did not leave the game. He missed 74 games last season with an ankle injury and then had offseason knee surgery. Detroit's offense lacked rhythm in the early going, but Stanley Johnson's 11 first-quarter points kept his team within striking distance. "When we lose a guy like Baynes, we need everybody else to step up". "If we're going to play nine guys this much, or 10 guys this much, then we might as well move a little faster". Boston posted a 62-34 edge in bench scoring. Griffin's stats through three games impressive, including a league-leading 36.3 ppg, but the fact he's been able to generate this level of production while committing just two turnovers is truly remarkable.

Pistons: Tuesday will open a six-game stretch where the Pistons will play five on the road.
