[BOSTON] — The Boston Celtics played host to the Philadelphia 76ers last night and the C's did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 116-108 victory. The win bumps Boston's record up to 37-19 on the season, while the loss drags Philadelphia's down to 21-35. Though a win's a win and Celtics fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was Marcus Smart leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 21 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 blocks and 8 steals in 34 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Smart included - and the most important part is that the Celtics walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Robert Covington did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful 76ers. Covington's 18 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Boston's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting 76ers, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the C's will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling C's will be a date with the Chicago Bulls while the visiting 76ers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Washington Wizards.
