The Boston Celtics beat the Gold State Warriors 103-92 in their 3rd Preseason Game of the year. The Celtics held off the Warriors throughout the game after going out to a dominating lead in the first quarter.
First, the Red Sox dominated, outperforming Golden State 38-18. They rode a wave of three-pointers, making six with their first quarter’s twelve attempts.
A more aggressive offensive approach was used by the team as a whole through Matt Ryan & Sam Hauser out. Each Brodrick Thomas & Justin Jackson tallied 11 points, with a total of five three-pointers in the process.
Both of these players kept up their impressive performances throughout the night as they outscored the Golden State Warriors from three-point range.
At the end of the game, Thomas scored 18 goals on 4-of-7 hitting from outside the arc, while Jackson scored 24 points on 5-of-10 shooting.
With 21 points and his amazing athleticism, Johann Begarin too joined the fray, making two threes and contributing to the scoring spree.
There were nine treys from JD Davison, who showed off his outstanding playmaking abilities.
Particularly stunning was Jackson’s performance. Because of Hauser’s absence, he had the opportunity to start the game, which he took use of to great effect.
It didn’t matter where he got the ball, he shot with no hesitation all night long. If he continues playing well, the Celtics may seek to sign him to a G-League contract, which he was on a 10-day contract with Boston last summer.
James Wiseman and Mfiondu Kabengele fought all night long in the paint for the Warriors. The Celtics big recorded his second straight double-double with 20 points, Thirteen rebounds, 4 assists, and two blocks.
After a lengthy night of fighting, Kabengele came out on top.
Moses Moody (21 goals) and Jonathan Kuminga led the Warriors with 29 points apiece, a continuation of the progress they have made since their rookie seasons.
Gui Santos, a rookie with the Warriors, also had a solid game, scoring 12 points and grabbing eight rebounds off the bench.
A 38-point quarter by the Celtics kept them in control as the Warriors re-entered the game. But in the final, Boston prevailed, securing their second victory in Summer League with an 11-point triumph.
