Celtics pull away from visiting 76ers behind heavy scoring from Irving

Boston is going with a big lineup on Thursday even with Joel Embiid sitting this one out. Morris should still see plenty of run with the second unit as Baynes has not played more than 25 minutes in any one game this season. "He can do things with just a tiny amount of space and make it look easy".

And even with Irving having to focus on his offensive impact more than nearly everybody probably anticipated - at least from a straight-up scoring perspective - he's found a way to successfully deliver, with at least 25 points in six of his nine games since returning to the C's lineup.

The Sixers put six players in double figures, with Dario Saric scoring a team-high 18 points.

Horford, talking about Morris, said, "I think he was the difference in the fourth quarter when we really couldn't score the ball". Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Robert Covington scored 11 points apiece, and Jerryd Bayless had 10 points. "I mean, even the - he made a couple of the one-on-one plays late where he drove it, but even the dribble handoff shot that he made in the corner, I mean, it was pretty well defended, and he just has a special ability".

Jayson Tatum, the player Boston selected with the No. 3 pick it received in a pre-draft swap with Philadelphia, scored 15 points. I think this building and this city has a real pulse.

According to Celtics radio voice Sean Grande, the Celtics have won 52 straight games when holding the opposition below 99 points. The Sixers were also missing three others, including Gs Markelle Fultz and T.J. McConnell, both out with shoulder injuries. Nik Stauskas (ankle) played for the first time since November 7.

- The Celtics now are 3-1 in games directly following a loss.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens went with a bigger lineup for the game, starting another Australian in Aron Baynes.

"We're playing against the league's best. Just his will to win and make those shots, when we need it most, keeps impressing me game by game". "We're 22 games in.". The Sixers, who just went 4-2 on a six-game homestand, also play the next three at home, starting with the Detroit Pistons on Saturday. The Celtics continue their four-game homestand with a Saturday matinee against the Phoenix Suns.
