NBA roundup: Celtics pound Warriors for 11th straight win


Boston, the NBA’s top team overall, destroyed the Golden State Warriors 140-88 on Sunday, extending their winning streak to 11 games. It was a devastating and historic performance. In the Celtics’ 46-year history, it was the third-largest blowout triumph. While Jayson Tatum celebrated his 26th birthday by scoring 22 of his 27 points over the first two-quarters of dominance, Boston’s Jaylen Brown scored 25 of his 29 points in a record-breaking first half. “That’s up there.” Fantastic birthday. Got to do what I love and win in front of the world’s greatest fans,” Tatum remarked.

The Celtics made NBA history

By being the first team to win three games in a single season by a margin of fifty points or more. The Celtics won both games in Boston, defeating Brooklyn 136-86 last month and Indiana 155-104 in November. Even with Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis out due to a left quad bruise, the host Celtics led the Warriors by the greatest margin at halftime in team history, 82–38, at the end of the second quarter. According to Boston’s Derrick White, “It was a lot of fun.” “It was a solid beginning. That kind of thing never occurs as planned.”

The first quarter saw the Celtics make ten 3-pointers, which is a season high. They then finished the quarter on a 23-1 run that lasted over six minutes to take control at 44-22. The Celtics shot 60% (30-of-50) in the first half, 15-of-24 from beyond the arc, and committed only one turnover, compared to the Warriors’ 34.9% (15-of-43) shooting and 3-of-18 3-point shooting. In the second half, the best players didn’t spend much time on the court. The Boston Celtics moved to 29-3 at home this season after extending their lead to 115-62 after three quarters, and their reserves ran riot in the final minutes.

Golden State dropped to 32-28

Good for ninth place in the Western Conference, while Boston, leading the Eastern Conference, improved to 48-12, the best record in the league. “Our experience is extensive. We’ve developed and progressed,” Brown remarked. “We’re primed and we’re ready.”
“There’s a lot of respect for the Golden State Warriors, but we feel like it’s our time now.” The Minnesota Timberwolves’ advantage in the West evaporated as they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 89-88 at home. With 13 seconds left, Kawhi Leonard made two free throws to give the Clippers an 89-86 advantage. With three seconds left, Anthony Edwards of Minnesota went to the rim for a dunk but was never able to get the ball back.

James Harden shot 0-for-10 from the field and 0-for-6 from three, scoring just four points, to lead the Clippers behind Leonard’s 32 points. Edwards scored 27 points to lead Minnesota. Doncic excels when losing. The Mavericks’ standout player Luka Doncic recorded a triple-double in Dallas, but the visiting Philadelphia 76ers prevailed 120-116 despite the loss. The Sixers (35-25) are still missing injured reigning NBA MVP Joel Embiid. Tobias Harris scored 28 points, Tyrese Maxey added 24, and Kelly Oubre Jr. added 21 points off the bench. Dallas, who dropped to 34-27 and is now sixth in the Western Conference, was led by 28 points from Kyrie Irving and 38 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists from Slovenian Doncic.

The New York Knicks defeated

The Cleveland Cavaliers 107-98 thanks to a triple-double from Josh Hart (13 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 assists). And Donte DiVincenzo (28 points). Jalen Brunson of New York was injured in the first few seconds of the game. Gripping his left knee before hobbling off the court, compounding the injury problems. That have kept three of the team’s best forwards off the court. Donovan Mitchell was sidelined for the Cavaliers because of a left knee ailment. The San Antonio Spurs defeated Indiana 117-105 thanks to 31 points, 12 rebounds. Six assists, and six blocked shots from French rookie Victor Wembanyama. Immanuel Quickley added 22 points and 11 assists, while R.J. Barrett scored 23 points to lead Toronto against visiting Charlotte 111-106. Paolo Banchero led Orlando to a 113-91 victory over Detroit at home with 29 points.
