The Clover Report: Week Twenty-Five

The regular season is winding down and the race for the number one seed is heating up. Two of the Celtics’ three games this week were against their rival Toronto Raptors. It started off at home against said Raptors as they were 3 games ahead of Boston for the number one seed. It’s still worth noting that the Celtics were still playing without Kyrie Irving but were still playing really well. That translated in this game as well. Not only were the Celtics able to hang with Toronto, they ran away and won 110—99. Marcus Morris led the team in scoring off the bench with 25 points as he continued his hot streak. But Jayson Tatum had the best overall game with 24 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. Terry Rozier also added 21 and dished out 7 assists as well. This was one of the best wins of the year for sure.

The Celtics’ next game was in Milwaukee against the Bucks. Going into the game, the Celtics didn’t have any points guards active as Rozier and Shane Larkin were out due to minor injuries. The Celtics were able to hang around with the playoff bound Bucks but Milwaukee won 106—102. Jaylen Brown led the way for Boston with 24 points. As for the Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo balled out as usual with 29 points and 11 rebounds. Finally the Celtics traveled across the border to take on the Raptors once again. Unlike the game earlier in the week, the Celtics couldn’t hang with the Raptors as they won comfortably 96—78. The Celtics just couldn’t score consistently like they have been able to in the past without Kyrie. They only shot 3-22 from the 3 point line. So it finally looks like the Celtics are out on the number one seed. But honestly, that’s not that right now. The Celtics need to get healthy and hopefully they will as the post season starts in a week.
