While almost no one in the entirety of New England watched, the Boston Celtics—sans Kemba Walker—faced the Chicago Bulls. And it was a close one due to the Bulls’ defense and the relentlessness of Zach LaVine.
Fortunately, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown were up to the challenge. All of them had well-rounded games (28-7-2-2-2, 24-5-3-1 and 19-7-3, respectively), buttressed by an Enes Kanter double-double off the bench (17-12) and defensive wiliness from Marcus Smart, Daniel Theis and Grant Williams.
