The Boston Celtics find themselves underwater once again with a record of 14-15 after Friday night’s loss to the Golden State Warriors. The shorthanded Celtics found themselves in a deep hole that they nearly crawled out of.
Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins held off the Celtics second half comeback attempt. The pair scored a combined 57 points and shot 10-for-21 from beyond the arc.
Jayson Tatum continued his scorching hot play in December with a 27-point, eight-rebound, six-assist game against the league’s best team. He had a slow start to the game but really picked it up in the second half and nearly propelled Boston to pulling off the comeback.
Jaylen Brown is still working his way back to 100 percent but he looked solid tonight scoring 20 points and grabbing nine boards.
Marcus Smart put up great numbers scoring 19 points, six rebounds, and eight assists. His assist totals this season have been great at times and the Celtic’s offense looks great when his assist numbers are high.
A loss is always tough to swallow but the fight the Celtics showed against the NBA’s best is a promising sign. If they can manage to stay healthy and play like they did in the second half on a consistent basis, they might be able to go on a run and stop seesawing with a .500 record.
