Box Score 


Horford, Morris returns help produce a blowout win: Al Horford (10 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) and Marcus Morris (12 points, 8 rebounds) started together for the first time in three weeks and the timing could not have been better for the Green, as the hosts used a huge second quarter (39-21) to cruise to a 119-103 win. Kyrie Irving led a balanced Celtics offense with a team-high 25 points, as five different C’s scored in double figures and eight scored at least points. Kemba Walker had a team-high 21 points for the visitors who struggled shooting the ball (39 percent from field) all night against a motivated C’s defense that played with a different level of intensity. Boston also snapped their three-game losing streak with the win.
