Terry Rozier led the way with 20 points on 4-for-6 shooting from three-point range as the Celtics sunk the Cavaliers 102-88 at TD Garden on Wednesday night.

Marcus Smart added 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists off the bench, including 3-for-6 from downtown. On the starters’ side, rookie Jayson Tatum led with 15 points and a plus-21 rating.

LeBron James had a relatively quiet night for the Cavs. He scored 19 points to go with 7 rebounds and 6 assists. But on the other hand, he got little help from the rest of the team. Kevin Love and ex-Celtic Jae Crowder combined to shoot just 3-for-23 from the field on the night.

Terry Rozier Highlights

Rozier scored five points in the final 27 seconds of the first quarter to help set the tone:

Later on, he put an exclamation point on his night when he nailed a triple with 5:33 left in the fourth quarter.

Rozier is now averaging 15.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 3 triples per game over his last five. Impressively, he scored tonight’s 20 points in just 20 minutes.

Elsewhere on the Celtics, young rising stars Tatum and Jaylen Brown continued to impress. Tatum drove to the hoop with authority, slashing his way through with the savvy of a veteran. Of course, this is becoming a regular occurrence for the 19-year-old.

Brown, meanwhile, made perhaps the noisiest play of the night with a thunderous reverse dunk late in the third quarter:

Standing O For I.T.

Former Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas returned to TD Garden for the first time in a Cavs uniform on Wednesday. He didn’t suit up for the game, but he did get a moment to soak in a loud ovation from the Celtics faithful when he appeared on the jumbotron.

What’s Next?

The Celtics get back to work on Friday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Garden. As with most broadcasts, you can hear the action live on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
