Highlights: Jayson Tatum powers Celtics to win over Curry, Warriors

Celtics

The Boston Celtics' winning streak has moved to six.

The team engaged in a tightly-contested battle with the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night. They were down at various points, including late in the game, but Jayson Tatum helped to power the team to a win.

With Jaylen Brown, Evan Fournier, and Robert Williams all out, Tatum posted a 44-point game to virtually match another MVP-caliber performance from Stephen Curry (47 points). Kemba Walker dropped 26 of his own, Marcus Smart played his usual brand of tough defense and had a couple of key 3-pointers down the stretch, and newcomer Jabari Parker tallied double-digit points to give the C's a lift off the bench.

The Celtics continue to play hard during this winning streak, and their ability to win without key players in the lineup is a great sign for them moving forward.

Here are the highlights from the Celtics' come-from-behind win over the Warriors.

FINAL SCORE: Celtics 119, Warriors 114
