Through three quarters, the Celtics’ Jayson Tatum had just 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting. It was not his night.

But as an MVP candidate must, when his team needed him he made the big plays — including a couple of big 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, and then the game-winner with 1.3 seconds on the clock.

Joel Embiid almost tied it with the shot of the night, catapulting a heave from the opposite free-throw line that fell, but his shot came just after the buzzer and was waived off. The 110-107 loss ended Philly’s five-game win streak.

Embiid was the best player on the floor in this one, finishing with 41 points and 12 rebounds. He led the 76ers to a 17-point third-quarter lead, but by the middle of the fourth it was the Celtics with a double-digit lead and trying to hang on. James Harden had 21 points and eight assists, while Tobias Harris chipped in 19.

Jaylen Brown was consistent all night and led the Celtics with 26 points, while Derrick White had 18 off the bench.
