The Boston Celtics turned an 11-point second quarter deficit into a 112-93 victory over the Miami Heat Wednesday night at TD Garden.
If there is any concern about the Boston Celtics in their hot start to the season, it is their slow starts to start basketball game.
Such was the case again Wednesday night as the Celtics struggled to get things going offensively to begin the game. In playing the second of a back-to-back, it was the Miami Heat that came out triggering, jumping to an 11-point lead almost midway through the second quarter.
Led by Bam Adebayo, who had 12 of the team’s 14 points, it looked like Miami’s night until the Celtics woke up offensively and defensively. Led by the trio of Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, the C’s went on a massive 42-15 fun that started in that second quarter and extended all the way to early in the fourth.
Jaylen Brown led the team in scoring with a season-high 31 points, Kemba Walker poured in 28, while Jayson Tatum added 19 points in the 112-93 victory to push the team to 15-5 on the season.
