Celtics back to W column

The franchise beat the Sacramento Kings on the road and keeps trying to win the Eastern Conference

Home » Celtics back to W column

We had six games on yesterday’s slate and the expectations became reality. Boston Celtics and Sacramento Kings starred the league’s night with a great game. And the Celtics are back to the W column as they beat the Kings 132-109 on the road and remain focused on winning the Conference.

The game started tight and the home team even won the first quarter of the game. However, after that, the visitors woke up and won the other three quarters. With the victory, the Boston Celtics are now the second team this season to break the 50-win mark in the regular season but are still the #2 seed in the East.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown once again shined. Tatum scored 36 points and eight rebounds, while Brown had 27 points. On the losers’ side, another triple-double for Domantas Sabonis, with 16 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists.
