Point Guard Avery Bradley matched his season high in points with 27 last night as the Boston Celtics defeated the Denver Nuggets 111-103 at TD Garden. The win was the fourth straight for the Celtics who last lost to the Toronto Raptors on January 20th.
“We have a lot of room to improve, but when we turn it up and we’re in the right position, we can be a good defensive team,” Celtics Coach Brad Stevens said. “If we don’t guard, we won’t win. That’s a part of us playing well.”
The Nuggets tried to claw their way back into the game but Boston forced 15 turnovers to thwart any kind of comeback and have lost four out of their last five games.
