Kyrie scores 23, Horford gets 17/8/8 and Tatum adds 17&10 as C's needed team effort to beat Mavs (videos)
Kyrie Irving scored 23 points to go with five dimes and two blocks as the Celtics finished their 5-game home stand with 4-1 record. Al Horford added 17 points, eight boards, eight assists and three blocks on the night, once again being a vocal point of Boston offense. Jayson Tatum got 17 points and 10 rebounds which was his second double-double of young career. Tatum is now first Celtics rookie since Paul Pierce to score 15 or more in four consecutive games.
Terry Rozier finished the game with 12 points off the bench, including nice dunk over Dirk Nowitzki to put the game away. Rozier was just one rebound shy of a double-double. Celtics had to count on their reserve players as Marcus Morris and Jaylen Brown were out so they went to Shane Larkin who once again delivered big time. Larkin added 11 points on his own, hitting three 3-pointers on the night. Daniel Theis posted seven points, 11 rebounds and two assists.
