Bob DeChiara/USA TODAY Sports

Everything you need to know about the Celtics’ 117-92 win over the Bulls in quickie form.


The Celtics look like a different team in the second half: After a shootout over the first 24 minutes (60-58 halftime score), the Celtics played some of their best basketball of the season on both ends in the second half, outscoring the Bulls 57-34 after the break to turn the tight affair into a laugher for the final 24 minutes.

The backcourt leads a stellar offensive performance: Jaylen Brown (20 points) and Kyrie Irving (25 points) shot a collective 16-of-25 from the field, setting the tone for a superb offensive effort from the starting five (all five players in double figures).
