Celtics edge Raptors in overtime battle of Eastern powers

Celtics edge Raptors in overtime battle of Eastern powers

Irving was dribbling through the Toronto Raptors defense and just looked awesome.

The Celtics, who had lost four of their previous six games, handed the Raptors their third straight loss after a 12-1 start.

Despite their impressive start, the Raptors have emerged as a shaky wager during the first month of the National Basketball Association season.

The real test for Hayward, however, will come on Saturday night.

After a first quarter largely characterized by Utah taking up a real estate claim in the paint and scoring most of their points there, Boston responded positively in the second frame.

Utah never trailed after the first quarter on its way to snapping a two-game losing streak.

The Celtics point guard went off and then some on the Raptors on Friday night, dropping 43 points on 18-of-26 shooting and 11 assists. He did a very nice job of attacking the rim and either finishing there or finding Derrick Favors or Rudy Gobert for easy dunks. He also joined the 10,000 point club in the process.

The four-time All-Star, acquired on Monday from the Minnesota Timberwolves, aimed a thinly-veiled dig at his former team in his post-game interview.

Still, after falling down by 16 early and standing idly by as the Sixers knocked down 13-of-15 shots in the first period, the Jazz definitely rediscovered some of their mojo. Joe Ingles talled 14 points, three steals, two assists and two rebounds. Khris Middleton almost recorded a triple-double with 23 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. He had a disgusting shooting night, scoring 13 out of 35 shots attempted, and scored just one shot out of the 11 attempted from the deep. Irving's most important stat is probably his assists.

Tyreke Evans, Domantas Sabonis and Cory Joseph led a dominant bench effort as host IN defeated Miami.

That's in sharp contrast to what happened in Dallas, when the Jazz scored only three points off of 20 turnovers. And that's the way they played with Gordon (two years ago).

Ricky Rubio scored 20 points for Utah, which beat Boston for the second time in eight days and swept the season series.

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a season-high 27 points to lead host Memphis over Sacramento. The Sixers shot 11-for-23 (47.8 percent) from deep.

Marc Gasol and Mike Conley each contributed 19 points to the win, which improved Memphis' home record to 6-1. Kyrie Irving had 20, but Jayson Tatum's 10 was the only other Celtic in double-figures. The Jazz throttled the Celtics in this third quarter on both ends, and while their lead ballooned higher in the fourth, the third is what decided this contest. The game changed when a steady diet of jump shots turned to one featuring a healthy dose of Irving, and to a lesser extent Tatum, getting aggressive and attacking the rim.
