After a nine-game winning streak culminated in a loss before the final All-Star Game, the Celtics resumed their pace on Thursday (129-106) with a rather dry victory over the Nets. Jayson Tatum was the strongman of the night, scoring 30 points. Boston’s five main players also reached 10 points: Jaylen Brown had 18 points, Marcus Smart had 15 points, Al Horford had 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Minnesota is on a mission at the end of the season. The Wolves were finally able to hang on to the playoffs. Or at least shortlisted. But they have to keep up with them.

Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson improved their game with 21 points each. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander returned after 10 games on the road, adding 32 points and five assists for Oklahoma City.
