Jaylen Brown scored 33 points as the Boston Celtics earned their most dominant win of the season in a 141-103 drubbing of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. The 38-point win marked the Celtics’ highest margin of victory so far in the 2020-21 season.

The Celtics jumped to a quick 38-21 lead after one quarter, led by Marcus Smart’s 10 points and Brown’s nine in the opening frame. But the rout was really on in the third quarter, when Brown scored 20 of his 33 points and the C’s scored 41 as a team.

Boston also got 21 points out of Kemba Walker and 17 points out of Daniel Theis. The bench also scored a combined 53 points, but the Cavs’ reserves scored 59. The big difference in this game was the performance of the starters; the Cavs had no one score more than Collin Sexton’s 13.

Up Next: The Celtics have a quick turnaround and had to hit the road after Sunday’s win, as they’ve got a date with Zach LaVine and the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.
