Here are the highlights of the Game 2 Eastern Conference Semi-Finals match between the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors which was scheduled on September 2, 2020 (Local Time).
The Celtics picked up where they left off as their mastery against the Raptors inside the NBA bubble continues and now they’re ahead in their best-of-seven series 2-0.
Boston’s guard Marcus Smart caught fire in the fourth quarter where he was able to drill five three-pointers in a span of 3:04. That quarter was about to be controlled by the defending champions but it was quickly reversed by their surging opponent.

The Celtics used that momentum switch to fuel their run in the final quarter as they completely clamped down Toronto.
Jayson Tatum led all scorers with his 34 points and eight rebounds while Smart had 19 markers in the victory.
For the Raptors, they got their offensive boost from OG Anunoby as he registered with 20 points and seven boards while Pascal Siakam only had 17 markers. Siakam is expected by many NBA experts to be the new go-to-guy of the squad after Kawhi Leonard decided to leave Toronto for Los Angeles Clippers.
Game 3 between the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors is scheduled on September 4, 2020 at 6:30 AM (PHI time).
