The Boston Celtics got back in the win column with a convincing win over a surging Brooklyn Nets on Sunday evening, improving to 19-5 for the season as they maintain their hold on the Eastern Conference’s top spot with a 103-92 victory over the Nets.
Outstanding play from Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum in the absence of Marcus Smart — out with hip issues for the game — helped keep the Celtics in front for nearly the entire contest with Boston responding each time after their opponent threatened to take a lead. The Celtics turn around with a game against the Toronto Raptors on the road on Monday night but have this win to buoy them through a tough stretch of road games to start December.
Let’s take a look at what NBA and Celtics Twitter had to say about Sunday’s win for Boston.
