The Celtics held an opponent under 90 points for the seventh time this season in their 91–81 win over a free-falling Detroit team on Sunday.
Five Boston players were in double-figures despite the low-scoring total. Al Horford led the team with 18 points. Marcus Morris sat out with a sore knee; he will miss this game on Monday night too. Brad Stevens continues to go 10 deep, however. Semi Olejeye made the move of the night in the fourth quarter with a slick euro-step for a fast break bucket.
Jayson Tatum scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting. He’s having the most efficient rookie season of all-time for someone scoring as much as he does. It’s prompting some Celtics fans to wonder if he deserves more offensive responsibility.
It’s a light second night of the back-to-back with the Chicago Bulls. Boston shouldn’t have to exert much to get the job done on Monday night.
Except the Bulls have won two games in a row to up their record to 5–20. They won at Charlotte last week and then beat the Knicks by a deuce at home for their first pair of consecutive wins all season.
The “streak” does coincide with the return of Nikola Mirotic, who was cleared to play after his facial fractures from Bobby Portis’ sucker punch healed. He’s averaging 12.5 points in his first two games back.
But Mirotic is only dangerous off the catch. That means Kris Dunn has to be the guy who penetrates and kicks to his new favorite assist target. Mirotic is a world-class shooter if he gets space. But Boston’s defense has stopped a lot more dangerous scorers this season.
The Celtics are simply the most efficient team in the NBA while the Bulls are one of the very least. Chicago fans should enjoy the game for the sake of seeing Kyrie and some good basketball but they can’t expect any more than that.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction: Boston wins and covers.
Seven doesn’t feel like enough. I know Boston is on the road and it’s the second night of a back-to-back but this team is just so much more well-oiled than Chicago. The Celtics should win each quarter and build up a lead steadily until it’s double-digits.
