LOS ANGELES --The good vibes from a 3-0 West Coast trip quickly dissipated on Monday night as the Clippers had their way against an overmatched Celtics defense for the better part of four quarters. The Celtics allowed a season-high in points and field goal percentage for an opponent, as the Clippers had seven different players score in double figures. Lou Williams led the way with a game-high 34 points while Danilo Gallinari (25 points) and Montrezl Harrell (20 points) were unstoppable from the perimeter and the paint all night long in the pick-and-roll. Jaylen Brown (22 points) and Terry Rozier (23 points) had strong offensive games for Boston, but it wasn’t close to enough to keep pace with the Clippers firepower on this night.
