Celtics handle business, blow out Indiana 120-95 at home
Boston got great contributions from multiple others on the night including Jaylen Brown (27 points, 7 reb), Derrick White (22 points, 9 ast), and Rob Williams III, who was all over the court in his 16 minutes. Rob's presence on the floor is so valuable, a guy who opposing players are truly afraid to take it at in the lane because of his shot blocking ability, he recorded 3 blocks and 3 steals tonight in limited playing time.
With tonight's 34 point effort, Jayson Tatum broke the tie with Larry Bird for the most 30 point games by a Celtic in a season, recording his 40th of the year. This is quite the accomplishment for the 25 year old and I'm sure it won't be the last time his name is etched in the Celtics history books. So here's to many more successful years and records broken, Congratulations JT.
