Coach Brad Stevens said “we really needed a break obviously every team had a break but I think we really need a rest and time to heal up, having Marcus Smart back was a great addition he helped us out a lot”. The Celtics we saw in Boston 121-112 win over Naw York was the best performance this year. Marcus Smart killing them on the defensive side and Shane Larkin coming off the bench and scoring right off the bat. Jaylen Brown said “we can throw anything at you we have Soo many weapons to beat you with”. That was exactly what we saw on Saturday when Boston got stronger as the game progressed. A 59-56 lead at halftime, the Celtics largest lead of the game was ten points making it 81-71 at the end of the third quarter. Boston gashed New York with a 13-2 scoring run at the beginning of the fourth, they went on to win 110-98.
