A quarter to remember:
So that was fun ☘️— Boston Celtics (@celtics) February 2, 2023

So yeah, that was fun. The Celtics started 7-for-7 from behind the arc and finished 8-for-11 in the first quarter. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum combined for 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting.
The return of Robert Williams: After sitting out the Lakers game on Saturday with a sprained ankle, the Time Lord came back after six days of rest. It showed. He wasn’t part of the three-point barrage, but he hurt Brooklyn taking the fight into the paint. On drop passes to the dunker’s spot or grabbing offensive rebounds for putbacks, Williams played thirteen minutes in the first half and finished with 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting and 9 rebounds, including four off the offensive glass.
DraftKings’ same-game parlay: With the Celtics up 34 at halftime, our friends over at DraftKings have an interesting prop bet: right now, you can get Boston -29.5 points, Jayson Tatum over 32.5 points, and Robert Williams over 10.5 rebounds for +450 on a same-game parlay. Good luck!
