It seemed the Celtics winning streak might come to an end tonight – at one point being down 17 points to the Golden State Warriors. Suddenly something clicked, and Boston caught fire in the 3rd Quarter, going on a 11-0 run, they fought their way all the way back into what was at one point a blow out.
At the end of the 3rd Quarter they were all tied up at 68 – and it was a battle to the finish line. Somehow – they found a way to win.
All five of the Celtics starters ended the game in double digits. Brown had 22, Horford 18 with 11 rebounds, and Kyrie had 16 – 11 of which were in the 4th Quarter.
The Celtics head to Atlanta to face off against the Hawks Sunday night. That’s now 14 in a row for Boston. Keep in mind – all of this is without Gordon Hayward. Tonight’s game could have been a preview of the two teams facing each other in the finals at the end of the year.
