Tyler Zeller scored a career-high 26 points as the Celtics escaped a trap game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a wire-to-wire win. The Garden Report was joined by special guest Chef Brian Santos, TD Garden Premium Suites Chef and Hell's Kitchen contestant, to talk about the luxurious experience at the Garden and athlete nutrition. Chef Santos told us some great stories from the NBA and Gordon Ramsay.

BOSTON – A trio of Avery Bradley, Evan Turner and Tyler Zeller fell just one point short of outscoring the Philadelphia 76ers in the first half. That might be the only glass-half-empty takeaway from Monday night’s rout, as the Celtics destroyed the Sixers wire-to-wire en route to a 108-89 win.

Bradley did his best Russell Westbrook impression, scoring 22 points to go with his ten rebounds and six assists. Tyler Zeller had a career-high 26 points on 11-for-15 shooting, hitting from midrange and scoring down low on Nerlens Noel.

Perhaps most importantly, Gigi Datome got to witness his first Gino Time, which henceforth shall be lovingly known as GigiTime. The Great Bun of Datome had 10 points and one smooth assist in just 20 minutes.
