Check Out Highlights From Celtics’ Scrimmage Victory Vs. Suns On Sunday


July 26, 2020

The Boston Celtics defeated the Phoenix Suns 117-103 on Sunday in their second scrimmage before the NBA’s 2019-20 season resumes.

All five Celtics starters were on the court at the same time, a rare feat for the C’s this season. And there were plenty of notable performances.

Kemba Walker, who has been dealing with a pesky knee injury, had a “great” day of practice Saturday and was in the starting lineup for the scrimmage. The point guard played just nine minutes but certainly looked like his old self, scoring six points in limited time.

Jaylen Brown was one of the biggest highlights of the day. The wing apparently didn’t just pick up where he left off, he might be even better.

Brown dropped a game-high 21 points in 27 minutes, shooting 7-for-13 from the field to lead Boston in scoring.

Though Brown did most of the heavy lifting, the offense was balanced with Jayson Tatum scoring 16 points with nine rebounds and Gordon Hayward dropping 17 points with six boards.

Marcus Smart had 10 points, going 5-for-5 from the field with five rebounds and four assists.

And holy handles.

Boston has one more scrimmage before the NBA’s seeding games begin when they take on the Houston Rockets on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.
