Boston Crushes Dallas 138-110 For Their 10th Straight Win

The Boston Celtics became the first team in the NBA this year to reach 10-straight victories, as they crushed the Mavs 138-110 inside of TD Garden. 

Dallas cut the Boston lead to 81-79 midway through the 3rd quarter, but the C's responded in a big way, outscoring the Mavs by 26 in the final 18 minutes. 

This was a great win for the Celtics against a hot Dallas squad, moving their home record to 28-3 on the season.
Boston got outstanding contributions from everyone in the rotation tonight, especially during their dominant stretch in the 2nd half. 

The big 3 combined for 81 points on the night, as Jayson Tatum (32 points, 8 rebounds), Jaylen Brown (25 points, 7 rebounds), and Kristaps Porzingis (24 points, 6 rebounds) continue to play incredible basketball.

The entire starting 5 scored in double-figures once again, as the starting unit combined for 105 points, just 5 less than the entire Mavs team Friday night.

Special shoutout to Al Horford, who played his ass off on Friday night, scoring 12 points and grabbing 8 rebounds off the bench. Al's energy was contagious, as he also came up with 2 big-time blocks and finished with a +21. Another obliteration on the parquet moved the Celtics to 47-12 on the season, as they are currently on a 65 win pace. Their lead in the East remains at 8 with 23 games left in the regular season.

There is nothing this Celtics team can't handle and the floor balance they present every night is a huge challenge for opposing teams.

The Celtics next game will be Sunday afternoon against Golden State. Go Celtics!
