The Boston Celtics also win Game 5 of the best-of-7 semifinal series against the Miami Heat, finishing 3-2.
The record champion prevails in the TD Garden at home 110:97. The Celtics made the difference in the first quarter, which they finished with a 15-point lead.
For Boston, who sometimes leads by 24 points and is never behind, a quartet of Derrick White (24 points), Marcus Smart (23), Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum (both 21) slash in double digits.
The second win in a row keeps the second-best team in contention for the NBA Finals. However, another victory is needed on Sunday night if Boston does not want to give up prematurely. For the sixth game, the teams return to Miami.
If the Celtics actually record the series, it would be a first. Never in NBA history has a team advanced to the next round after losing the first three games of a best-of-7 series. (SDA)
