The Boston Celtics shot a sizzling 57% in routing the Nuggets 124-104 in Denver.
The Celtics used a 46-21 run to close out the first half and take a commanding 68-41 lead into halftime.
The Nuggets put together a couple of runs but never anything that threatened the Celtics, who got 30 points each from Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets with 23 points, but his tough night shooting epitomized the Nuggets’ struggles. He missed 15 of 23 shots and the Nuggets shot 40%.
