The Celtics take advantage of Kawhi's loss to win another great game

Kemba and Brown were the standouts against the Clippers. Paul George was left with responsibility without Kawhi and missed the last 3-pointer.


The Celtics begin to grow. They had already achieved important victories, but without having a minimum regularity that allowed them to dream of a role similar to the one they played last season, where they stayed close to reaching the Finals. They are already with a positive balance in the classification and the Clippers beat them (117-112), holding the pressure well at the end of the game and leaving a pleasant sensation.

The Angelenos moved to two with six minutes to go after gradually coming back. A small pull from the locals made the distance grow until Rivers' men were back to two, with a triple from George, but already with eleven seconds left. Daniel Theis did not fail in free practice and George did when he tried another triple, finally dying the game there.

Jaylen Brown, with 18 points, was the best of the Celtics although the top scorer was, in the end, point guard Kemba Walker (25). Paul George had the weight in Los Angeles and finished with 32 points, with Reggie Jackson (25) as the main help.

Small crisis for the Clippers before the break: They have lost five of their last eight games, now going 24-13 as they approached the West lead. Boston, now 18-17 in the Eastern Conference.
