They lost rookie Robert Williams to a knee contusion, and it was a close game throughout, the Celtics pulling away for a win in the final minutes of the fourth to secure the win despite Williams missing much of the game.
Big performances from Semi Ojeleye (16 points) Guerschon Yabusele (16 points, 7 boards) and Jabari Bird (14 points, 8 boards) were the reason Boston came away victorious.
All three of whom figure to play some meaningful minutes with the parent club this season, even if Bird doesn't make the regular roster.
