Opening Up The Files On The Boston Celtics

Boston Celtics set franchise record with 27 3-pointers in win vs Knicks

The Boston Celtics took down the New York Knicks 133-118 on the second night of a back-to-back in a record setting shooting night for the franchise. This game saw it all on the offensive end for Boston and it was impressive to see as the Knicks are one of the best high-effort teams in the league.

Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum led the way for the Celtics, combining for 56 points and they each hit six 3-pointers in the night. The team went on to hit their first five 3-pointers to open the game in what turned into a record setting night. 

The Celtics finished the night connecting on 27-51 from behind the arc for an impressive 52.9 percent clip. Every player who saw the court for the Celtics last night made at least one 3-pointer. By the end of the third quarter, the Celtics had 21 made 3’s and added another six in the fourth quarter.

Brown and Tatum each had six. Hauser added five while Marcus Smart had three, Grant and Brogdon with two each, and Blake Griffin, Noah Vonleh, and Derrick White each had one a piece. 

The Celtics became the first team in NBA history to have every player to play in the game connect on a 3-pointer.
