We were just trying to save our season. “Tonight we played with pace and purpose. We were getting fouls. We were leaving in transition. You see… Free throws and shooting start to look a lot easier.“, he stated.

In the last quarter, the Celtics experienced a delicate moment, where they stayed a little over two minutes without being able to put the ball in the opposing basket. Coincidence or not, Tatum was on the bench during that period. With that, as soon as Mazzulla put him back in the game, Boston quickly adapted to their playmaker and the points reappeared for the alviverde team. For the player, the recovery of the team went through a change of strategy.

It is worth mentioning that the two teams face each other again this Thursday, 25th, at 9:30 pm (Brasília time), at TD Garden.
