Celtics make it 14 on the trot

Celtics make it 14 on the trot

The Warriors' previous season-low in points scored was 97.

The Boston Celtics' season was considered over by many experts a mere five minutes in when forward Gordon Hayward, who joined the team in the summer on a four-year, $128 million maximum contract, went out with a season-ending left ankle injury.

Here are the Stars, Studs and Duds from Boston's 92-88 win over Golden State to extend the Celtics' winning streak to 14 in a row.

The Boston trainers didn't recommend Irving taking off the mask, which he was wearing for the second game since suffering a slight facial fracture. Then, they rolled off a 19-2 run to tie it up and, thanks to a pair of late Kyrie Irving free throws, shocked the defending champs to stretch their winning streak to 14 straight games. The play of second-year guard Jaylen Brown and rookie Jayson Tatum has also contributed mightily to their start.

The Boston Celtics guard's best childhood friend, Trevin Steede, died in Atlanta on Wednesday. "I felt like it was me and him".

Said Irving: "It's never a good thing when someone's going through it".

Kevin Durant has 24 points for Golden State.

The Boston Celtics' defense is playing on another level than the rest of the National Basketball Association right now.

"They are playing the best right now in the East", Curry said.

At Phoenix, James Harden scored 33 of his 48 points in the first half as Houston surged ahead 90-65 at half-time.

Paul, acquired in an off-season trade with the Los Angeles Clippers, had not played since the season opener after being injured in a pre-season game against Memphis on October 11 when he collided with Mario Chalmers.
