The score gave the Celtics an unprecedented feat in the NBA: it is the first time that a team has won three games with no minimum of 50 points difference in the same season. Furthermore, this was the second biggest home win in Boston history.

As a result, the Celtics’ other overwhelming victories in the 2023/24 NBA were over the Indiana Pacers (difference of 51 points) and Brooklyn Nets (difference of 50). Boston has the best campaign of the season and leads the Eastern Conference with 48 wins and 12 losses.

As usual, this Sunday’s highlights were the duo Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Brown was the game’s leading scorer with 29 points, two more than Tatum. Payton Pritchard (19 points), Derrick White (14) and Sam Hauser (12) were the luxury supporting players in the Celtics’ triumph.

On the Warriors side, Lester Quinones scored 17 times, six more than Moses Moody. On an unrecognizable afternoon, star Stephen Curry scored just four points in the 16 minutes he was on the court. Golden State is eighth in the Western Conference with 32 wins and 28 losses.
