Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a game-high 30 points. The Greek Freak added eight rebounds and five assists. He went 13-of-17 from the free throw line.
Jaylen Brown led the way for Boston with 21 points off the bench. Jayson Tatum had 20 and Kyrie Irving added 15 points.
Al Horford and Marcus Morris were not in the lineup as both continue to deal with sore knees.
