Celtics defeat Warriors 119-104 behind balanced effort to climb back up into 3rd place
The Celtics Thursday night easily defeated the artists formerly known as the Golden State Warriors. Gordon Hayward led all scorers with 25 points, while Marcus Smart chipped in 21. The Jay's anxiously awaited news on whether they'd be named all-stars today, with Tatum getting the nod and Jaylen getting passed over. They scored 20 and 18 respectively. The Warriors were led by D'Angelo Russell with 22.
With the win the Celtics moved into a tie with the Miami Heat for third place in the Eastern Conference. Boston hosts the 76ers on Saturday at 8:30pm.
