Box Score 


Closing run takes C’s to finish line: The Celtics fought their way back from a 5-point deficit with just under three minutes remaining in this one, closing the game on a 13-3 spurt behind the late heroics of Kemba Walker (20 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and Jayson Tatum (24 points). Both players shook off slow shooting starts to come through with big baskets during the game-deciding run, with Walker tallying 14 of his 20 points in the final frame to best a feisty Warriors team for Boston’s 10th consecutive win. The shorthanded C’s also got 22 points and 8 rebounds from Jaylen Brown while Marcus Smart knocked down 4+ 3-point attempts for the fourth consecutive game to ensure the C’s left the Bay Area with a victory. Alec Burks had a team-high 20 points off the bench for the hosts who lost D’Angelo Russell to a finger injury in the second half.
