The Celtics were outscored 36-11 in the third quarter and blew an 11-point halftime lead in a 96-89 loss to the Magic Sunday, dropping them to third in the Eastern Conference. "We tend to be front-runners," Rivers said of his team's inability to protect leads. For video of Rivers, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, visit the Green Street blog.
