Everything you need to know about the Celtics' 135-115 win over the Spurs with BSJ insight and analysis


Gordon Hayward suffers broken left hand in second quarter: This unfortunate injury after a collision with LaMarcus Aldridge overshadowed the result in this one. We have full analysis on the injury with Dr. Flynn and the lingering impact on the C’s rotation covered so be sure to check those out.

Jaylen Brown leads explosive offensive performance by C’s: Offense had been a concern in the early stages of the season thanks to some slow starts but those issues are in the rear view mirror after a 3-0 road trip this week. Jaylen Brown set the pace for a Boston offense with a season-high 30 points while Kemba Walker chipped in with 26 points and 8 assists against an overmatched Spurs defense. The visitors scored 31 or more points in all four quarters, shooting 51 percent from the field, getting to the free throw line 28 times and turning the ball over on just eight possessions. With Boston’s bench chipping in with 43 points of their own and Rob Williams posting a career night (11 points, 7 rebounds, 6 blocks) the Spurs never seriously threatened after falling into a double-digit hole early.
