Boston Defeats Toronto to Complete the Season Sweep
The Boston Celtics completed the season sweep of the Toronto Raptors Monday night, winning the final matchup of the regular season 105-96 inside Scotiabank Arena.
Tonight's win was far from the prettiest performance that we've seen from the Celtics this year, but the defense was stout enough to get the job done.
Any time you can sweep a divisional opponent, that's a great feeling, so hats off to the guys for getting it done tonight.
With Jaylen Brown missing tonight's game with right knee soreness, Boston had a very balanced attack on the offensive end.
Jrue Holiday posted a new season-high with 22 points to go along with 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Derrick White was joint top scorer with Holiday at that 22-point mark, while Jayson Tatum added 19 points and 14 rebounds.
The Celtics saved themselves by shooting 41% from 3 and 92% from the charity stripe on a night where they really struggled inside the arc.
