Celtics look to avoid 4th straight loss
The Boston Celtics were in the middle of a 16-game winning streak when they beat the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this season. Heading into their rematch on Tuesday night at Staples Center, the Celtics are on the verge of losing four in a row for the first time in nearly two years.
I’m super happy we have him and I hope we keep him, Nance told the Los Angeles Times. He may not look the part, but that is an NBA player. There’s no doubt in my mind. It doesn’t shock us. We’ve seen it in practice; we’ve seen it in training camp. Seeing it in the game is no surprise.
The Celtics didn’t have Horford available when they beat the Lakers 107-96 on Nov. 8 for their 10th straight victory. Horford sat out after taking an elbow to the head two nights earlier against the Atlanta Hawks and being placed in concussion protocol.
Celtics leading scorer Kyrie Irving (24.5) was held to 19 points in the last game against Los Angeles, but he’s coming off a 40-point effort in the loss to the Magic.
I try to be motivated every game, man, he told reporters after the game. I try to come out and put my team in a great position to win and be there for my guys. I try my hardest to be consistent.
Texas A&M trailed 26-23 at halftime and took control with a 15-4 run to lead 46-38 late in the third period. Carter’s first field goal of the game capped a 6-0 run to extend the lead to 10 early in the fourth and a Kayla Wells 3-point play with five minutes left gave Texas A&M its largest lead at 61-50.
Raigyne Louis had 18 points, Chloe Jackson added 14 and Ayana Mitchell 13 for the Tigers (12-6, 4-3).
I’m still approaching 2,000 points, Musketeers coach and former player Chris Mack quipped about Bluiett’s impending achievement. It shows your consistency. You’re a target on everybody’s scouting report. A lot of guys can score 1,000 points in four years. He’s one of the best shooters in the country.
