Article Summary:

Tatum’s big game spoiled the return of Lakers star LeBron James after he missed eight games with an abdominal injury. Boston won for the sixth time in nine games after opening its season with five losses in seven games.

The Celtics benefited from a complete effort as Marcus Smart totaled 22 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Dennis Schroder scored 21 against his former team, Al Horford added 18 points and Josh Richardson chipped in 15.

Boston’s win was all the more impressive considering it came without injured All-Star forward Jaylen Brown, who missed his seventh straight game with a Grade 1 right hamstring strain. Josh Giddey totaled 14 points and 12 rebounds, Mike Muscala added 14 points and nine rebounds off the bench while Luguentz Dort and Ty Jerome scored 10 apiece.
