Notebook: Celtics 111, Cavaliers 99

THE FACT: The Celtics snapped their franchise record-tying 13-game road losing streak by routing the Cavaliers.

THE LEAD: Rookie center Kelly Olynyk matched his career high with 25 points and grabbed a season-best 12 rebounds as the Boston Celtics blew out the Cleveland Cavaliers 111-99 on Saturday at Quicken Loans Arena. Shooting guard Avery Bradley also scored 25 points for the Celtics (25-55), while rookie point guard Phil Pressey had nine points and a career-high tying 13 assists. All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, shooting guard Dion Waiters and point guard Jarrett Jack scored 15 points apiece for the Cavaliers (32-49), who trailed 98-65 three minutes into the fourth quarter before making a cosmetic comeback. Boston won back-to-back games for the first time since March 7-9.

QUOTABLE: "Wins like this mean a lot because it shows that we're going to continue to go out and play hard. We feel like we still have something to play for. We might have had some defensive breakdowns, but we played hard the whole time."
-- Celtics guard Avery Bradley

THE STAT: Boston earned its first road victory since Feb. 10 at Milwaukee, ending its skid after 61 days. The Celtics previously lost 13 consecutive away games from Feb. 23-April 7, 1979, establishing a team record that will now be shared with their 2013-2014 counterparts. "All eight guys that we had were pretty good and locked in tonight," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "Our ball movement was great and Kelly was really good. Every good team I've been around has action and motion on offense. We did a pretty good job of doing both."

TURNING POINT: Irving made a long 3-pointer to pull the Cavaliers within 45-38 with 3:32 left in the second, but Boston answered with a 23-4 run that bridged halftime. Olynyk, Bradley, and small forward Jeff Green each scored six points during the 4:48 onslaught, while power forward Brandon Bass had five as the Celtics went up 68-42. "The more you pass the ball, the more good shots you get," Pressey said. "Our bigs passed the ball really well tonight, which helped set things up for the rest of us. It was a lot of fun."

QUOTABLE II: "It was nice to have an extra opportunity to start tonight, and I jumped on it. It's every player's dream to be able to play through stuff and make mistakes. That experience is vital to the growth of a player and the team."
-- Celtics center Kelly Olynyk

HOT: Celtics power forward Brandon Bass shot 7-for-11 from the field and 5-for-5 from the foul line in scoring 19 points. ... All eight Boston players scored at least three points, grabbed two rebounds, and dished out an assist. ... Bradley is averaging 23.7 points with a .532 field goal percentage, .684 3-point percentage, and 1.000 free-throw percentage over the last three games since returning from a strained right Achilles tendon. ... Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson picked up his team-high 35th double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

NOT: The Cavaliers' starting backcourt of Irving and Waiters combined to shoot 9-for-30 before being benched for the entire fourth quarter. They had four total assists and zero steals in 58 minutes. "We tried to make it as hard as possible on Kyrie and Dion tonight, because you're dead if you don't," Stevens said. ... Cleveland center Spencer Hawes finished with three points and three turnovers in 21 minutes, and was the victim of much of Olynyk's outburst. ... The Cavaliers were booed off the court at the end of the third by the crowd of 18,456.

QUOTABLE III: "We don't look like we're playing to get better. We look like we're going through the motions. It's not good. You want to win, but for me, the most important thing is trying to play the right way. We haven't done that for a while."
-- Cavaliers coach Mike Brown

GOOD MOVE: Cavaliers rookie power forward Anthony Bennett -- the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft -- will play in the Las Vegas Summer League to work on his skills. Bennett has been an enormous disappointment, averaging just 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds in 51 games off the bench. "This will be a great experience for A.B., especially since he couldn't play summer league last year because he was hurt," Brown said. Canadian native Bennett is shooting a team-low .352 from the field and had been a "Did Not Play -- Coach's Decision" on 15 occasions.

BAD MOVE: The Cavaliers haven't broken a sweat defensively in their last two games, which followed their Wednesday elimination from the NBA playoff race. On Friday, Cleveland dropped a 119-116 decision at Milwaukee. Boston only had eight healthy players, but played with much more energy in scoring 89 points over the first three periods. "These games are tough because you've invested so much in making a playoff push," Hawes said. "We have to do a better job of battling human nature and not allowing that to impact our effort or whatever else."

NOTABLE: Celtics center Jared Sullinger (left ankle sprain), power forward Kris Humphries (right knee soreness), point guard Rajon Rondo (left shin strain), and point guard Jerryd Bayless (right knee hyperextension) were all game-day scratches. Bayless will have his status updated Sunday with Boston returns home, while the other three are listed as day to day. ... Boston was also without small forward Gerald Wallace (left knee, left ankle surgeries), rookie center Vitor Faverani (left knee ligament tear), and shooting guard Keith Bogans (not with team). ... The Cavaliers' inactives were Bennett (left patellar strain), small forward Luol Deng (lower back soreness), shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain), and rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix (left patellar stress fracture).

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Monday @ Philadelphia, Wednesday vs. Washington. For the Cavaliers, Wednesday vs. Brooklyn.
