The Boston Celtics picked up their fourth straight win with a 112-93, wire-to-wire victory over the Detroit Pistons. Tonight’s win marks the first time the Celtics have reached a winning streak as high as four this season.
The Celtics continued their recent run of success by starting the game off hot. Jaylen Brown led the way by scoring 10 points early in a variety of ways. He helped Boston take an early 28-16 lead at the end of the quarter.
The stellar defensive performance continued in the second quarter and the Celtics were able to hold Detroit to just 31 first-half points.
The Celtics cruised through the third quarter and built up an insurmountable lead that the Pistons couldn’t overcome. Things got a little shaky when the Celtics cleared the bench but ultimately they were able to hold on for a comfortable win.
Boston didn’t play great on the offensive end in this game, but they got solid output from Jayson Tatum, as he led the way in scoring for both teams with a game-high 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds.
The Celtics can extend their winning streak to five as they take on the Orlando Magic this Sunday night.
