Celtics Storm Back For Road Win Over Thunder

Celtics Storm Back For Road Win Over Thunder

The Boston Celtics became the first team in history to win seven straight games following an 0-2 start after their comeback win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night, according to Raul Martinez of NBC Sports Boston.

Behind Westbrook dictating play on offense - particularly in a 10-5 Thunder flurry following a dubious flagrant foul call on the reigning MVP in the second quarter - and OKC's ability to switch onto Irving between a choice of Westbrook, Paul George and Andre Roberson, the Thunder blasted out to a 55-37 halftime lead.

Coming into the game, the Celtics knew they were facing a Thunder team that would provide them the stiffest challenge they've seen thus far defensively.

Then came the third quarter, when Boston point guard Kyrie Irving turned them flat.

Donovan and Carmelo Anthony both called the evening "a tale of two halves".

That OKC first-half defense was as swarming as it's been all season, including during the previous two games.

They gave up 64 in the third and fourth quarters to be precise, letting go of an 18-point halftime lead that made the team atop the Eastern Conference look like it was leagues below the star-studded Thunder.

For the first 24 minutes, they did everything: they created countless catch-and-shoot looks from 3.

This time, Orlando (6-3) very well could have a healthy Payton back at the controls when it faces the surging Boston Celtics (7-2) Sunday at 6 p.m.at the Amway Center. "It's going to be a huge test for us, but we have to respond".

After the Boston Celtics lost their first two games against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Milwaukee Bucks, the Celtics had to take a step back and reexamine their team as a whole.

Sure, it wasn't always pretty, but it's the best-looking win among the bunch. He missed the free throw but got his own rebound and muscled in the putback over Westbrook.

He came into Friday's game shooting 47.5 percent from 3-point range in his career against the Thunder, which is the best he has shot from 3-point range against any team. "But they continued on just attacking. they really got into our interior defense, and any time you let a team into the paint, a lot of things can happen".

"We battled", Irving said. Boston found ways, whether on the secondary break or with Irving's slithering to change the theme come quarters three and four. Anthony scored 10 points with 14 rebounds, but he scored just two points on 2-of-11 shooting in the second half. He kinda stayed ahead of the curve with where the game was going. I think we took our foot off the gas a little bit. "So Coach puts the trust in me and Al to go down the stretch".
