Article Summary:

The Boston Celtics brought their “A” game on the defensive end of the court to bear on the Cleveland Cavaliers and grinded their way to a 98 – 92 road win that got the Celtics back to.500.

With their regular-season record now standing at 7 – 7 with the win, the Celtics pulled it off not only without All-Star forward Jaylen Brown – out to rest a strained hamstring – but also after having lost big man Robert Williams III at the half after Timelord felt discomfort in his knee in the second quarter. Leaning into their defensive identity, Boston pulled off a difficult road win against a surprisingly good Cavs team.

Solid games from Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, and Marcus Smart in particular, with key late baskets from Dennis Schroder made it possible – let’s take a look at some of the best moments captured in images in the road win.
