NBA -- Celtics rally past Warriors, 92-88, win 14th straight


PhilBoxing.com




BOSTON. The Boston Celtics extended their season-high streak to 14 on Thursday night, stunning the Golden State Warriors, 92-88 before a sell-out crowd at the T.D. Garden.

After trailing by as m​any​ as 17 in the third quarter, Kyrie Irving and prized rookie Jayson Tatum ​led the way as Boston kept the league's best record with an impressive come-from-behind victory over Steph Curry and the defending champion Warriors. ​

With Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala hitting their stride early, the Warriors took a 28-18 lead after one quarter before settling with a 47-42 advantage at halftime.​

Shooting guard Jaylen Brown made an impact at the third​ quarter, scoring back-to-back baskets to cut the Warriors? lead to 66-56. Al Horford made a dunk and ​two​ free throws, Brown was fouled and made another pair of free throws before a Tatum lay-up gave Celtics the upperhand at 68-66. Omri Casspi made a basket to even the score 68-68 ​heading into the fourth ​quarter.

The final quarter ​was ​a see-saw battle but at the 7:58 mark, the trio of Tatum, Irving and Horford conspired to spark a 22-point ​run​ to finish off the Warriors 92-88.

Brown led a balanced Celtics offense with 22 points and 7 boards. P​ower forward Marcus Morris and Tatum both had 12 points apiece, Horford chipped in 18 points and 11 rebounds while Irving scored 16 points and 6 assists despite a dismal 4-of-16 from the field.

Kevin Durant led the losing side with 24 points while Klay Thompson added 13. The Warriors fell to 11-4 while Boston hiked its record to a league-best 14-2.
