Boston Obliterates Oklahoma City 135-100 to Reach 60 Wins

The Boston Celtics became the first team to reach 60 wins this season after a 35-point beatdown of the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

Holding a 10-point lead entering the 4th quarter, Boston used a 42-17 run in the final frame to put the game out of reach.

OKC was without its two best players on the evening, and it really showed at times, as the high-powered Celtic offense took full advantage.
Any time a team breaks the 50-40-90 mark in a game, they're definitely doing something right on the offensive end of the court. 

Boston concluded Wednesday's contest shooting 54.3% from the field, 42.5% from three, and 94.7% from the charity stripe, one of their most efficient games of the season.

Kristaps Porzingis had one of his best games as a Celtic tonight, finishing with 27 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 blocks in 31 minutes. KP's size in the mid-post area was the biggest difference in the game, as OKC continued to switch and had no answer for the unicorn. 

Jayson Tatum played just 29 minutes, 7 below his season average, but still put up good numbers with 24 points and 7 rebounds. 

Jaylen Brown (23 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists) really struggled through the first three-quarters of tonight's action but was the main catalyst during the Celtics' huge fourth-quarter run. JB scored 15 points on 5/6 shooting in the final period, and he was a +17 in his 8 minutes of action.

The Celtics ended the game with seven different players in double-figures, just terrific balance. Boston clinched the NBA's best record with their convincing victory, as the NBA playoffs will now run through TD Garden. 

60-16 is an incredible regular season, and with six games remaining, there's an opportunity to win even more. 

To put it in perspective, the second-place Milwaukee Bucks have 47 wins this year, forming a monumental gap between the East's top two seeds.

The Celtics next game will be Friday night against Sacramento. Go Celtics!
