Notes: Referee Bob Delaney called four technicals in the first half, whistling them on Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy, Boston G Rondo, and two and an ejection against Celtics G Sam Cassell. There were eight called overall. ... Boston coach Doc Rivers was named Eastern Conference's coach of the month for the season's first month, making him just the third to win the conference's award for three straight months. He won the last two at the end of last season. The other two were: Flip Saunders with Detroit in 2005-06 and Larry Brown with Philadelphia in 2002-03. "It just means a lot of people did a lot of good things and a lot of your players are hitting their jump shots," he said before the game.
