Baynes scores 21, Irving adds 19 and Morris gets 18 as Celtics beat Lakers for 10th win in a row (videos)
Aron Baynes was the Celtics' unexpected hero on Wednesday night as the Celtics beat the Lakers in TD Garden for tenth win in a row. Baynes tied his career-high in points by scoring 21 on the night to go with eight boards and three assists, being great inside presence for the Celts with Al Horford sidelined with an injury. Kyrie Irving added 19 points on his own as his dad watched the game from the stands. Marcus Morris got to step up on TD Garden parquet for the first time as a Celtic and finished the game with 18 points.
Terry Rozier scored 14 points off the bench, once again being Celtics' best scorer among second unit. Rozier also grabbed eight rebounds as he continues to be one of the best guard rebounders in the game right now. Daniel Theis played some meaningful minutes because of Horford's absence and did some solid work on both ends of the floor. German rookie had eight points, five boards, two steals and three blocks on the night and was plus-12 which was second best result on the team (only Marcus Smart was better with plus-16).
