Jayson Tatum’s outstanding performance, with 34 points and nine rebounds, propelled the Boston Celtics to a 113-103 victory against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. The win extended the Celtics’ unbeaten home record to 7-0.
Tatum showcased his scoring ability by dropping 13 points in the fourth quarter, securing the victory for Boston, which maintained a lead of at least eight points throughout the final 12 minutes. Al Horford made a significant contribution with 15 rebounds, and Derrick White added 15 points and 11 assists. Jaylen Brown contributed 21 points, and Neemias Queta grabbed 10 rebounds.
Despite the Hawks’ Trae Young’s impressive performance with 33 points, five rebounds, and seven assists, it wasn’t enough to secure the win. De’Andre Hunter added 24 points, and Bogdan Bogdanovic finished with 23, making 7 of his 10 attempts from beyond the arc. However, the Hawks’ 103 points were the fewest they have scored in a game this season.
Both teams played short-handed, with Boston missing key acquisitions Kristaps Porzingis and Jrue Holiday due to injury, and Atlanta without Jalen Johnson, who suffered a left wrist injury in their previous game.
Boston established its first double-digit lead in the first quarter and continued to dominate, leading 69-53 at halftime. Although the Hawks mounted a comeback in the third quarter, cutting the deficit to six points, Boston maintained control and secured the victory with a final score of 113-103.
