Celtics (13-3), Pelicans (9-7)
En route to the NBA’s best record early in 2022-23, Boston has relied on a high-powered offense and threats from a multitude of three-point shooting threats. The Celtics used the same formula Friday to post their ninth straight victory, bombing in 20 three-pointers to end what was a three-game winning streak for New Orleans. The Celtics grabbed a double-digit lead and kept turning back every Pelicans attempt to make the game tight on the scoreboard, often sinking a momentum-turning outside shot or slicing to the basket for a layup.
Jayson Tatum fumbled the ball away, but it rolled directly to Grant Williams along the baseline for a layup, giving Boston a nine-point lead with just under two minutes remaining. The fortuitous bounce followed a run-quelling corner three by Williams that expanded the visitors’ lead from six to nine.
