The Boston Celtics hung on to beat a depleted Toronto Raptors 132 – 125 at TD Garden Thursday night to head into the All-Star break on a four-game winning streak.

The Raptors, down a number of players in the NBA’s health and safety protocols, hung around in what would end up being a very close game most of the way through, even as the Celtics pulled away a bit in the second half. Big nights from Boston’s starters and bench both secured the win, with Jayson Tatum leading all Celtics with 27 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists, with Jaylen Brown adding 21 points and 7 boards and Kemba Walker 15 points and 6 assists.

Grant Williams added 17 points off the bench, Jeff Teague 14 points, and Robert Williams III 10 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks.
