The Jay's Run Wild as Boston Handles Indiana 118-101
What a phenomenal performance by the best duo in the entire NBA. The Celtics were able to move to 28-7 on the season following a dominant showing by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown in a 118-101 victory against the Indiana Pacers.
Despite losing Kristaps Porzingis in the 1st quarter and not attempting a free throw in the entire 1st half, the Celtics were able to pull out an impressive win.
Jayson Tatum played arguably his best game of the season tonight, recording 38 points, 14 rebounds, and 6 assists while knocking down 8/13 from deep. JT scored 15 of his 38 points in the 4th quarter, slamming the door right in the Pacers face.
Jaylen Brown was excellent as well; he finished Saturday's game with 31 points on 13/20 shooting.
When Jayson and Jaylen both score 30-plus, the Celtics are basically unbeatable. This was a game where the Jay's had to carry the load on the offensive end, and they did exactly that.
The Celtics remain the best team in the league on the 2nd night of back-to-backs, winning another game against a good team.
Boston's defense was a main catalyst in this game as well, holding Indiana to their season-low point total and frustrating Pacers star Tyrese Haliburton most of the night. What a great win to start off a tough 4-game stretch.
The Celtics next game will be Monday night against Indiana once again. Go Celtics!
