Celtics Storm Back For Road Win Over Thunder

With the loss of Gordon Hayward in the opener, the team had to figure out how to win ball games without one of their top scoring options.

The perennial All-Star progressed to his usual self in the second half.

In the process, the team made National Basketball Association history as they became the first team to lose its opening two games and go on to win seven on the bounce.

"They have a ton of ability to switch, especially when you talk about guys like Westbrook, (Paul) George and (Carmelo) Anthony", Stevens said, "but you go into (Andre) Roberson - who I think is a tremendous defender - (Jerami) Grant, who's a tremendous defender, (Steven) Adams, who's one of the better center defenders in the league".

With an average of 40.7 FanDuel points, Irving is projected for 26.5 points, 6.8 assists and 44.2 FanDuel points at a cost of $8,400 on Friday night. In his 11th season, the only thing that Horford wants this season is a championship, and he has shown that he and Kyrie can deliver when their team is put in a bad position.

Contrasted against the way he struggled in the first half, Irving was exceptional in sparking Boston's comeback.

It's (very) early, but the potential to be defensively dominant was evident in the Thunder's 101-94 loss the Celtics on Friday. The Duke product scored 13 points, including a personal 7-0 run in the second quarter to keep the Celtics within shouting distance. "We have two days before the next game against NY, so there's a line of thinking that, 'Even if he's ready, let's get him two more practices so we can fully put it behind him.' But we'll see how he feels (on Sunday)".

It was Irving's sixth straight game with 20 points or more. Instead, Irving produced maybe his most memorable series of plays in a Celtics uniform. Anthony scored 10 points with 14 rebounds, but he scored just two points on 2-of-11 shooting in the second half. "So Coach puts the trust in me and Al to go down the stretch". Three of those treys came in the final frame, and he never hesitated with clean looks as the Thunder did everything to corral Irving. It showed that it was just a tale of two halves. It's going to be a fun game (on Sunday).

Stevens is still concerned about Boston's first-half struggles, as the Thunder completely flummoxed the Celtics for the first 24 minutes.

Sure, it wasn't always pretty, but it's the best-looking win among the bunch.

After the Boston Celtics lost their first two games against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Milwaukee Bucks, the Celtics had to take a step back and reexamine their team as a whole.

Morris is expected to come off the bench and will be on a minutes restriction.
