Gordon Hayward paced the Celtics with 20.
Jayson Tatum had just 15 points in that game, his only outing where he scored less than 20 in his last 15 games. Tatum has taken his offensive game to the next level of late, highlighted by three straight games shooting over 60 percent with more than 30 points to finish Boston’s West Coast swing.
Similar to Tatum, Westbrook has been surging for the Rockets, with 30 or more points in nine of his last 11 contests. His 35.2 points per game leads the league by a wide margin.
