BOSTON, March 13 (UPI) --
Jacob Green scored 20 points and was one of seven Boston players in double figures Wednesday, launching the Celtics to a 112-88 demolition of Toronto.
Boston snapped a two-game skid with a thorough victory that saw the Celtics shoot 52 percent from the floor.
Paul Pierce had 15 points for the Celtics, who outscored Toronto by 20 during the middle two periods. Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry and Jordan Crawford all had 12.
The Raptors were paced by Rudy Gay with 19 points, but they were held to 43 percent shooting and converted only 3-of-13 from beyond the arc.
Toronto has lost seven out of nine.
