Jayson Tatum had a game-high 27 points. Kyrie Irving added 21.

Jusef Nurkic was a force down low, putting up 18 points while hauling in 17 rebounds.

Damian Lillard scored 18 points and added 12 assists.

The Celtics are now 7-6 on the year and return to Boston on Wednesday night to play the Chicago Bulls.
