BOSTON -- If he so chooses, Paul Pierce could Tweet some taunts about a sweep and not blame hackers for it this time. The Celtics moved one victory away from fulfilling Pierce's tainted Tweet -- "Anybody got a BROOM?" -- with a dominating 94-71 victory over the Magic on Saturday night at raucous TD BankNorth Garden. It was their sixth consecutive triumph in the NBA playoffs. Game 4 is scheduled for Monday night, which gives the Magic two days to orchestrate a search party and find the missing offense of Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis.

Times staff writer Barry Stavro breaks down the keys for Orlando to bounce back from Game 1 of the NBA Finals: Orlando needs to get Dwight Howard the ball more quickly in the paint before the Lakers can send their double-teams. L.A. outscored Orlando by 34 points in the paint in the opener. The Magic's guards also need to keep driving to the hoop to set up open shots for Hedo Turkoglu and Rashard Lewis. Look for the Magic to send more double-teams at Kobe Bryant to make him give up the ball.

Tim Duncan had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Tony Parker had 18 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 96-90 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics on Thursday night. The Spurs beat the SuperSonics for the fifth consecutive time, sending Seattle to its fifth loss in six games. San Antonio, making the second stop on a seven-game trip, has also won four in a row in Seattle. The SuperSonics three times cut a 15-point deficit to four in the final period but could get no closer, their last chance coming when Rashard Lewis failed to convert a three-point play after pulling Seattle within 94-90 with 49 seconds left.
