Ryan Asselta of "SportsNet Central" wraps up a busy Friday night in sports. The Celtics ran their home winning streak to eight in a row with a 94-86 victory over the Warriors. Meanwhile, in Fort Myers, Fla., Mike Napoli made his Red Sox debut.

At the Garden, the C's held high-scoring Stephen Curry to 25 points and Paul Pierce scored 26 to lead the Celtics past Golden State.

In Florida, Napoli, the Red Sox new first baseman, had a single, and RBI and a run scored in his first Grapefruit League game for the Sox, a 5-2 victory over the Pirates. Lefthander Jon Lester pitched three scoreless innings for Boston for his second win of the spring.

On Saturday night, the Bruins are back in action against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
