It was 90's Night at the TD Garden today and the Pacers hung within striking distance throughout the game, but in the end the Celtics prevailed with a 128-123 victory. Jaylen Brown who started the game off with 14 points in the 1st quarter finished with a game high 32, while his partner in Jay's, Tatum, added 31 of his own.

Ime Udoka on his team's recent slippage: "Unless there's some natural complacency after Golden State and Denver and Utah, some of the good teams we played -- we can't have that. Especially this late in the season."
