Celtics 92 (14-2), Warriors 88 (11-4)
It’s still very early, but the Celtics might be for real. Using a 19-2 third quarter run to erase a big deficit, Boston snuck by the defending champs to win their 14th game in a row . Kyrie Irving struggled (16 points on 4-of-16 shooting) but was aggressive down the stretch and knocked down what would become the game-winning free throws.
Kevin Durant led the Dubs with 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting, but missed a contested mid-range jumper with Al Horford in his grill that could have tied the game at 90. Neither Steph Curry nor Klay Thompson (combined for 22 points on 32 shots) could really get it going and, outside of a pair of first half threes from Nick Young , the bench didn’t help much either.
