Video: Boston Celtics 106, Toronto Raptors 104 highlights
Here are the extended full game highlights and Boston's box score from this afternoon's Celtics win over the Raptors in Toronto. Jaylen Brown, Malcolm Brogdon, and Grant Williams led the way offensively for the Celtics who played this one without Jayson Tatum and had players dropping like flies throughout the hard fought win.
“Rob hyperextended his knee,” Celtics interim coach Joe Mazzulla said postgame, per NBC Sports Boston. “It’s nothing serious, just obviously taking precaution. He felt good coming off the court. Smart, obviously you saw, sprained his ankle. X-Rays were negative, it’s just a matter of how he’s able to cope with it day-to-day.”
Those injuries were additions to that of Jayson Tatum, who missed the game entirely with a lingering wrist injury. Derrick White also left Saturday’s game after being kneed in the thigh, but was never officially ruled out.
Mazzulla said White will not miss any time.
This was the Celtics ninth straight win and they improve to an NBA best 35-12. They will now head to Florida for match-ups with the Magic and Heat on Monday and Tuesday respectively.
