The Celtics (35-19) continued their winning ways last night, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers (11-43) 103-96 last night at Quickens Loans Arena.
Boston is now 10-1 in their last 11 games, and are currently tied for third in the Eastern Conference with the Indiana Pacers, who have the same record.
Aron Baynes (left foot contusion), Kyrie Irving (left hip strain), and Marcus Morris (right knee soreness) all sat out Tuesday night's game.
Jayson Tatum led the Celtics with team-highs of 34 minutes and 25 points (his third highest total of the season), tying Jaylen Brown with seven rebounds.
Gordon Hayward (18 points, 31 minutes), Marcus Smart (17 points, 32 minutes), and Brown (13 points, 29 minutes) were the other Celtics to score in double figures.
Reserves Semi Ojeleye, Daniel Theis, and Brad Wanamaker combined to play 53 minutes with Boston's short-handed roster.
Next up for the Celtics are the Lakers and Clippers, at TD Garden, tomorrow night and Saturday night, respectively. As if Boston hasn't #BeatLA enough in the last few months, they have a chance to do it twice more before the weekend's over.
I'm all for that. Go Celtics!
