Boston won again in their venue this time against Atlanta.

Kristaps Porzingis notched 31 points, Derrick White had 12 of his 21 points in the 4th quarter, and the Boston Celtics defeated the Atlanta Hawks 125-117 at TD Garden in Boston, MA.

Jayson Tatum had 20 points, 9 boards, and 7 assists as Boston improved to 24-3 at TD Garden and won their 7th straight match vs. Atlanta. Al Horford finished with 14 points, 8 boards, and 8 assists, while Jaylen Brown notched 15 points.

“When we play at that level on the offense, I just think that puts us in a different dimension compared to our competitors in the league,” Horford claimed. “We have so many fantastic players out there that it becomes very tough to stop us.”

Jaylen was the only Celtics starter not to hit from the 3-point line as Boston went 17 for 49 from beyond the arc, making 9 of 16 in the 4th quarter.

Saddiq Bey led the Hawks with 25 points, and Trae Young finished with 20 points and 10 assists.

Atlanta will play vs. the 76ers in Philadelphia on Friday, while Boston will face the Wizards at TD Garden on the same day.
