Boston basketball players beat Toronto away from home with a score of 106:104 and thus kept the best record in the Eastern Conference, and now they have 35 wins and 12 losses in 47 matches played. Throughout the match, we saw equal basketball from both sides, and although Toronto had a slight advantage for most of the match, Boston eventually took the lead and came away with the victory.
“It says a lot about our team,” Boston coach Joe Mazzulla said of the short-handed victory, per ESPN. “In the beginning of the game, you could obviously feel that we just didn’t have the juice. We just kept playing.
We never wavered, we made great plays. Guys did a great job managing the game”. They were led to victory by Brown, who scored 27 points, followed by Williams with 25 points and Brogdon with 23 points. “To win in the NBA is hard enough, to win on the road down a bunch of guys is hard to do,” Brown said. “You don’t want to take it for granted, but we definitely have enough on this team, enough in this locker room, to win games whoever is on the floor”.
“The box score doesn’t tell the story about what he does for us,” Mazzulla said. “When he takes it to another level defensively, we’re a different team. He was great tonight, man,” Mazzulla said. “He was the trigger for us”.
Washington beat Orlando 138:118 at home, while Charlotte beat Atlanta 122:118 as a guest. Kristaps Porzingis left the game in the third quarter with a left ankle sprain. “He'll be evaluated tomorrow. We'll see where it is,” Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr.
said, per ESPN. “I don't think it's too bad, but fingers crossed”. “We just didn't have the physicality tonight that we needed. There was just a different level of energy." Orlando coach Jamahl Mosley said. “We didn't have our presence and our physicality early, with the ball pressure that we needed, and so they were comfortable stepping into each one of their shots”.
Cleveland beat Milwaukee 114:102 at home, while Minnesota, also at home, beat Houston 113:104. Phoenix beat Indiana at home, and in the end, Philadelphia was better than Sacramento away from home with a score of 129:127.
