I Boston Celtics lost at home. A defeat that is news since they had all 20 home games played so far this season.
The first team to advance to the TD Garden are the Denver Nuggets. Need a lavish showing from the two stars Nikola Jokic e Jamal Murray to inflict the Celtics’ first home loss, which came by a score of 100-102. The Serbian put up 34 points with 12 rebounds and 9 assists shooting 14/22 from the field, the guard added 35 with 8 rebounds and 5 assists on 15/21 shooting. Only one other player in double figures, Michael Porter Jr with 13.
On the other side, Derrick White’s 24 and Kristaps Porzingis’ 21 were not enough. One of the keys to the defeat is the bad shooting night of Boston’s two stars: Jayson Tatum come in at 22 but with 1/8 from three, Jaylen Brown stops at 13 shooting 1/9 from behind the arc.
