Porzinigis Returns as the Celtics Win Their 2nd Straight
The Boston Celtics remained dominant on the back end of back-to-backs Tuesday night, as they defeated the Indiana Pacers 118-112 at TD Garden.
Boston moved to 7-2 on the 2nd night of back-to-backs this year with the win, which is the 2nd best record in the league. The Celtics concluded a stretch of 15 games in 26 days with an 11-4 record, as the schedule will now start to ease up a little bit.
All 5 starters for the Celtics scored at least 17 points in the game, carrying the team on the offensive end.
Jayson Tatum was the leading scorer in the game, scoring 30 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists. JT had it going in the first half, helping the Celtics build a 15-point halftime lead.
Jaylen Brown also had another great outing on Tuesday. JB finished the night with 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals, continuing to push his all-defensive campaign.
Boston shot it great from the opening tip, relying on that shooting rhythm to get them over the finish line against a feisty Pacers team.
