The Boston Celtics needed a road win against the Detroit Pistons on Monday night, and they got one — but a late collapse in the second half threatened to let another game to a lesser opponent get away. A huge game from Jayson Tatum (34 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists) in tandem with Robert Williams III (15 points, as many boards, and 2 steals) helped hold off the Pistons in a game the Celtics led by as much as 23 points earlier in the contest.
Solid games from Derrick White (23 points, 7 rebounds, and as many assists), Sam Hauser (15 points, and 6 boards as a starter), and Malcolm Brogdon (16 points off of the bench) secured Boston’s 37th win of the season.
Let’s take a look at some of the best plays captured in images from the Celtics’ game No. 54 of their 2022-23 campaign.
