Kyrie Scores 36, Celtics Beat Philly [VIDEO]
Kyrie Irving scored 36 and Al Horford scored 21 to lead the Boston Celtics to a win over the Philadelphia 76ers 108-97.
The C's could never really put away the Joel Emibiid-less 76ers. One big reason was the 76ers shot 50% on their three-pointers, making 16 of them.
But Irving took over in the fourth quarter. Horford had eight rebounds and five assists along with his 21 points.
Jayson Tatum had 15 point, including some big shots down the stretch.
And, Marcus Morris off the bench added 17 points.
For Philly, Dario Saric led with 18. JJ Redick ahad 17.
The C's improve to 19-4 with a matchup vs Phoenix next tomorrow afternoon in a rare Saturday afternoon game.
