The Boston Celtics entered Tuesday night with quite a bit of optimism off a blowout victory over the Wizards Sunday.
C’s fans as always were just hoping for some grasp of consistency, and boy we got it in bunches.
The shamrocks were coming into the game with a fully healthy unit of their usuals.
On the other side, the Kings were one of the top offensive teams in the league in their last 10 games.
The Celtics have a tendency to overlook teams they should absolutely beat given such circumstances — we had to see the magic to taste the rainbow tonight.
The Boston Celtics are notorious for slow starts, but this game was certainly not one of them. They were in full command from the tip and led the game practically wire to wire.
The Celtics got off to a sizzling start ending the opening quarter on a 38-13 run. Did things change in the second for Sacramento?
No chance, as the C’s led at the half and their lead snowballed to as large as 33.
From there, the team just continued to build and build on their enormous lead that would reach as high as 60 points, before ultimately beating the Kings 128-75.
The Jays combined for 66 points, while guys like Marcus Smart (even with being scoreless) and Timelord followed suit with impactful performances.
It feels abnormal to see a team such as the Celtics, who have been on quite a rollercoaster ride this season with few highs, many lows, and numerous speed bumps, manage to string consecutive blowout wins together.
Maybe the tides are turning. Maybe, it’s too soon to say.
In any event, we at HH are loving every minute of this high.
Without further adieu, here are 3 takeaways from this Boston Celtics beatdown win over the Sacramento Kings:
