Everything you need to know about the Celtics’ 94-88 win over the Wolves in quickie form.


The shots don’t fall, so the Celtics hit the glass: The Celtics had their worst shooting night of the year from 3-point range (6-of-36) but they managed to crash the glass hard after those misses, piling up a season-high 17 offensive rebounds, 11 of which came in the second half. Those extra chances led to 19 second chance points, which helped the Celtics pull away late behind the offense of Marcus Smart (team-high 18 points) and all-around contributions from Kyrie Irving (16 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists) and Al Horford (7 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists).
