Box Score


Worst offensive performance of the year: The undermanned Celtics had a little more help in the backcourt as Terry Rozier returned to the lineup after a one-game absence, but it didn’t matter against a motivated Raptors squad. Toronto fought back from an early six-point deficit and limited the Celtics to just 58 points over the final three quarters, allowing them to hold Boston to a season-low 78 points. A miserable shooting night (33 percent from field, 3-of-22 from 3-point range) combined with a horrific second quarter (nine turnovers and 13 total points) was too high of a mountain for the C’s to overcome in the second half. Marcus Morris had a game-high 21 points in the defeat, while Greg Monroe added 17 points off the bench.
