BOSTON (AP) -- Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and added 10 rebounds, and Rajon Rondo had 14 assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 94-82 victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
The win was Boston's fifth in six tries. The Celtics moved into a tie with the Philadelphia 76ers atop the Atlantic Division.
Former Celtic Al Jefferson had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Jazz, scoring 10 in a 17-3 third-quarter run that turned an 18-point deficit into a two-possession game. The Jazz tied it early in the fourth before Boston scored the next seven points -- with Garnett contributing on all of them -- to pull away.
Utah had won seven of its previous eight games.
