The Boston Celtics honored Bob Kraft and the New England Patriots and then went out and beat the Denver Nuggets 104-100.

Jared Sullinger, who was late for the afternoon shootaround after being late for a Sunday shootaround, sat out the first quarter. He then proceeded to score 14 points, including two free throws down the stretch to help win it.

Five different players scored in double figures. Avery Bradley and Marcus Thornton led with 17 each.

The C's have won two in a row to improve to 18-30. They host Philly next tomorrow night.
