Celtics stay hot, torch Nets by 50

BRIAN BABINEAU/ AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics display their might as they dominated the Brooklyn Nets by 50 points, 136-86, in the NBA regular season.

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) — Derrick White scored 27 points and Jayson Tatum added 20 to spark the National Basketball Association-best Boston Celtics over Brooklyn, 136-86, on Wednesday, the fifth-largest blowout win in club history.

The Celtics won their sixth consecutive game, with Payton Pritchard adding 28 points off the bench.

Boston, which had beaten Indiana, 155-104, in November, became only the third club in NBA history with multiple 50-point or better wins in a season, joining Milwaukee in 1978-79 and Sacramento in 1992-93.

Kristaps Porzingis scored all 15 of his points in the first half as the Celtics seized a 68-32 halftime lead and boosted the league’s top record to 43-12.

“It’s a good treat going into All-Star break, winning this big,” Boston forward Sam Hauser said.

“It has been a good season so far. Get some time to rest up, get our minds and bodies right. Definitely still some areas to get better at.”
