After the Celtics 91-89 victory over the Magic on Friday night, Celtics forward Jared Sullinger talked about how the C's did a better job of executing their game plan in the second half.

And what was a big part of that game plan?

"We know [Nikola] Vucevic is a great player," Sullinger said after the game. "We tried to keep him off the offensive glass and limit his touches on the block."

Vucevic, the 7-footer who had 31 points and 20 rebounds in his previous game, was held to 14 points and 13 rebounds by Sullinger and the Celtics.
