January 20th, the Celtics beat the Warriors 121-118.
After the game, Celtics interim coach Joe Mazura was interviewed by the media and talked about the game.
“It’s a test,” Mazura said in an interview.
“I think we responded to their test in terms of space and confrontation.”
“I like the aggressiveness we’ve shown in attacking the rim, even if some layups don’t make it.”
“The significance of this game is that our players have shown that they are capable of competing at a very high level. At the same time, our game habits are getting better and better.”
“I looked at him, he looked at me, and then we suddenly agreed and I kept him on the court,” Mazura said of Celtics player Jayson Tatum.
In this game, Tatum played 48 minutes, scored 34 points, 19 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals, and made 9 of 27 shots.
