It was a close game in the first half but the Celtics pulled away in the 3rd quarter to win 107–99. Irving led the way in scoring again with 26 points but he got help as Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, and Marcus Morris combined for 52 points in a balanced effort for Boston.
Finally to close out the week, the Celtics hosted the worst team in the NBA in the Cleveland Cavaliers. This had trap game written all over it as it was the last game before the Celtics’ showdown against the Warriors.
Irving and Horford were held out for rest and it didn’t matter at all as the Celtics won 123–103. Terry Rozier balled out as he hit his first 8 shots and finished with 26 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists. Jaylen Brown added 23 off of the bench for Boston.
