BOSTON – – The Celtics didn’t play the way they wanted to on either end of the floor during their recent West Coast trip.
Semi Ojeleye had a career-high 24 points and six 3-pointers, and the Boston Celtics rolled to a 120-106 win over the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night.
The Raptors played without OG Anunoby for the ninth straight game but still managed to dominate in the paint, where they outscored the Celtics 58-32.
But Boston’s second unit was strong throughout and, led by Pritchard, outscored its bench counterparts 38-31.
As well as Boston played on the offensive end, it also did a good job defensively, holding the Raptors without a second-chance point.
Pritchard is the third Celtics player since the 2000-2001 season to produce at least 20 points, six 3-pointers and five rebounds off the bench.
