BOSTON – – Jayson Tatum scored 36 points and Jaylen Brown had 30 points and 10 rebounds before both rested the entire fourth quarter as the Boston Celtics routed the Sacramento Kings 128-75 on Tuesday night.
Robert Williams finished with 13 points and 17 rebounds for the Celtics, who got off to a torrid start and never let up on the Kings, even when both teams went to reserves for the final period of a game that had been long decided.
“We were sharing the wealth. Everybody contributed. Everybody was hitting shots. We scored 128 points,” Tatum said. “We had very little ball movement, very low assists and they were able to force us into some tough shots because we were always on the shot clock.”
Brown alone outscored Sacramento with 15 points in the first quarter and had a nice assist with a long bounce pass to set up Robert Williams for a dunk.
