With the Boston Celtics losing two guards in Marcus Smart and Jeff Teague who were injured against the Toronto Raptors on Monday, the Cs needed someone who could carry a larger load.
Jayson Tatum put together another productive effort to take the lead. In the first half, Boston scored 26 of their 40 points – one that fell short of their career high – as Boston beat Toronto (X-X) and improved to 5-3. The Raptors had no answer for the All-Star striker when Tatum shot 11:19 from the ground, including 5-8 from below, but more importantly, Tatum prevailed with aggressive drives to consistently hit the free throw line get where he went a perfect 13-on-13.
Tatum blew up in the second quarter, scoring 21 points in the frame as Boston closed the verse with a dominant 25-6 rift to take control after a dismal start that saw Toronto come scorching hot from a distance and one Hits scored 17-5 lead only four minutes into the competition. Boston prevailed against Toronto by 38-14 in the second quarter and led by 61:46 at halftime. It wasn’t just Tatum who led the tear in the second quarter when Payton Pritchard, who made 32 minutes in the absence of Smart and Teague, was once again highly effective as he scored 23 points and dished out 8 assists.
The Boston Reserves had their fingerprints throughout the win as Semi Ojeleye played a key role with Pritchard, knocking down 3 out of 5 3-pointers on the way to 12 points while scoring eight rebounds. Grant Williams also put together a strong performance with a total of 14 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. Rob Williams was the fourth and final member of the second unit to see double-digit results as Williams scored 11 points and 15 rebounds.
