Henry Ellenson (13 points, 9 boards, 5 assists, +18) and Alonzo Trier (18 points, +21) were huge off the bench and in the clutch. Mitchell Robinson (17, 14, 6 blocks) was swatting every shot in sight.

Celtics 95 (37-24), Raptors 118 (45-17)

Statement. Made.

Toronto outscored the Celtics by 23 points in the second quarter, and their lead would only balloon to 31 points by the third quarter.

Pascal Siakam dropped a game-high 25 points with 8 boards and a +22 plus/minus.

Thunder 112 (38-22), Nuggets 121 (42-18)

Despite blowing an 18-point third-quarter lead, the Nuggets were able to hold on and defeat OKC for the third straight time this season.

Nikola Jokic scored a game-high 36 points with 10 assists, 9 boards and a whopping +22 plus/minus.

Denver has now won five straight.
