The Utah Jazz arrived at TD Garden on a three-game winning streak after dropping a home game to the Boston Celtics on Feb. 26 with the sting of the loss still on their minds.

The game began with a hail of 3-pointers, with Utah guards Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley going blow-for-blow with Boston forwards Jayson Tatum and Semi Ojeleye, the latter earning a start after his 22-point outburst against the Cleveland Cavaliers Mar. 4.

The Celtics began to pull away as guard Marcus Smart got hot from beyond the arc as well, but the Jazz would battle back, retaking a 30-29 lead on a Jordan Clarkson make with seconds left in the frame.

The final frame saw Walker start to make a dent in the Jazz’ double-digit lead, but the Celtics could never quite get over the hump.

The Boston Celtics next face the Oklahoma City Thunder at TD Garden on Sunday, Mar. 8 at 6pm ET.
