Jayson Tatum had a big game against the New York Knicks on Sunday, pouring in 30 points with 6 rebounds and 7 assists, but it’s hard to look past the performance of Kemba Walker on Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets.
Coming off that scary neck injury, Walker didn’t miss a beat shooting the ball. With no Kyrie Irving, the Nets gave the Celtics a game at TD Garden but Kemba wasn’t allowing his team to go down.
Walker poured in a season-high 39 points on 13-of-24 shooting, including some clutch shots down the stretch to help put the game away.
Again, bouncing back from that scary neck injury, it was definitely a test of his toughness and an MVP type performance.
In what is becoming a nightly highlight, Boston Celtics second-year big man Robert Williams took a nice pass from Brad Wanamaker and shook the rim in the team’s 113-104 victory over the New York Knicks Sunday afternoon.

What’s next for the Boston Celtics
Brad Stevens and his team have two tough matchups at home this week. They first take on Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat at TD Garden and then have a rematch against the Denver Nuggets.
In the last matchup against the Nuggets, the Celtics chipped a big second-half deficit down to just a point without the services of Kemba Walker. This will be a chance for the team to get one back against Denver.
