Bradley gets 19, Crowder adds 18, Horford scores 16 and Olynyk goes for 15 but the C's fall (videos)
Avery Bradley got 19 points to go along with five rebounds and three assists but he couldn't do much about scorching hot Kyrie Irving on Tuesday night. Bradley was Celtics' leading-scorer in this game with Isaiah Thomas out due to hip injury.
Jae Crowder scored 18 points (on 4-for-7 from deep) to go with team-high eight boards and four assists, playing solid until thigh injury as he went back to the locker room for a few minutes and though he appreaed to be fine, he didn't look the same at all.
Al Horford finished the night with 16 points and team-high seven dimes, playing great in the post and generating some easy buckets for himself and his teammates. Horford was 7-for-11 from the field but it wasn't enough as the Celtics blew 16-point lead.
Kelly Olynyk jumped into the starting five in place of injured Amir Johnson and got 15 points, five boards and three assists on the night, including strong two-handed dunk over Kevin Love.
Jaylen Brown got himself another solid game, scoring nine points on the night on 3-for-5 shooting from field. Brown was Celtics' best scorer of the bench along with Jonas Jerebko who had nine points as well.
