Celtics

FINAL SCORE: Raptors 113, Celtics 97

IN BRIEF: After blowing out a short-staffed Toronto by 25 in their own building on Christmas Day, the Raptors didn’t have to wait long to exact revenge. They returned the favor in front of a packed TD Garden crowd, snapping Boston’s five-game win streak, thanks to a furious night from the backcourt. Kyle Lowry (30 points) led all scorers, and combined with Fred Van Vleet (18) to combine for 9 of 19 from three-point range. Kemba Walker led all Celtics scorers with 30 points.
