Tatum posts 24/14, Irving and Morris both add 16 as the Celtics sneak by the Knicks (videos)
Jayson Tatum notched his first double-double this season, posting 24 points to go along with 14 rebounds as he helped the Celtics to sneak by the Knicks in a close game on Saturday. Tatum not only put up big number but also hit some big shots down the stretch. Kyrie Irving added 16 points, five assists and two steals.
Marcus Morris went for 16 points as well with Terry Rozier scoring 10 off the bench. Aron Baynes started the game in place of Gordon Hayward (rest) and got 10 points and five rebounds in the first half. Celtics big man didn't play in the second half because of a hamstring injury that can keep him out for some time.
