Here are the game highlights of the match between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Clippers which was scheduled on February 14, 2020 (PHI time).
The match between the two league-leading squads needed two extra periods to determine the winner of the game.
Both the Clippers and Celtics are in the number three position in their respective conferences. Both squads were also coming from a defeat and wanted to make a bounce-back win before the league head to its All-Star break that will start the next day.
Jayson Tatum is just two-point shy on tieing his career-high and logged a total of 48 minutes. He finished the game with 39 points and nine rebounds. Marcus Smart was the other Celtics player who surpassed the 30-point production as he delivered 31 points.
Gordon Hayward also chipped in with 21 points and 13 rebounds output and his defense against Lou Williams in the second overall time is one of the keys for their victory.
Lou Williams was the scoring leader for the visiting Clippers as he finished with 35 points along with his six assists and eight boards. Kawhi Leonard added with 28 points and 11 boards in their back-to-back losses.
Paul George exit the game due to an injury and didn’t return. He was later announced that he suffered a strained left hamstring the same injury which put him on the sideline early this year.
