Irving and Brown lead the way with 22, Theis posts double-double as Celtics blow out Kings (videos)
Kyrie Irving got 22 points, five assists and four steals as the Boston Celtics won their sixth straight game, blowing Sacramento Kings out. Irving now has 21 steals and leads the NBA as he continues to impress with his defensive efforts. Jaylen Brown scored 22 points as well, adding six rebounds on the night. Second year player was near perfect from the field, hitting 7-for-8 field goals and 5-for-6 from downtown. Daniel Theis posted his first NBA double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Jayson Tatum finished the night with 12 points on his own to go along with four rebounds and two assists. Won't be easy for Marcus Morris to take away that starting spot from the rookie. Terry Rozier once again was Celtics' best scorer off the bench as he got 12 points, three assists and two steals in the game. And last but not least, Semi Ojeyele scored career-high 11 points on 3-for-6 shooting from the 3-point line. If he can hit those 3's, he's going to be great 3-and-D player.
