Article Summary:

The Spurs made 71.4 percent of their shots from the floor, a season-best for a half, while their 77 points matched a season-high.

Boston roared back, as Jayson Tatum scored a franchise-high-tying 60 points, with the Celtics’ comeback going into the record books as San Antonio’s largest blown halftime lead ever and just the second time in NBA history that a team lost after being up by at least 29 points at the break.

Dwight Howard led the 76ers with 19 points and 11 rebounds off the bench, with Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid scoring 18 points each as Philadelphia swept a home back-to-back versus the Hawks.

Philadelphia’s recent surge can partially be attributed to the play of Simmons, who averaged 12.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5 assists in 22 minutes per game over the past three outings while shooting 78.2 percent from the floor.
