Kyrie gets 36, Horford posts 21/8/5/2, Morris adds 17 and Tatums scores 15 as Boston beat Philly (videos)
Kyrie Irving got 36 points to go with four rebounds and three assists as the Celtics held off the Sixers and won their second matchup this season. Al Horford rebounded very well from the Pistons game, posting 21 points, eight boards, five dimes and two blocks on the night. Marcus Morris started the game on the bench and scored 17 points to go with five rebounds and three assists.
Jayson Tatum added 15 points in his ROTY showdown against Ben Simmons who also finished the game with 15 on his own. Sixers rookie got more rebounds, assists and steal than Tatum but he also had five turnovers and couldn't bring the win for Philadelphia. Big part of that was because of the Celtics defense that held the Sixers under 100 points and 41.7 field goal percentage.
