Jayson Tatum scored 31 points and 12 rebounds, Jaylen Brown added 22 points and the Boston Celtics won for the seventh time in eight games, beating the Pascal Siakam-led Toronto Raptors 116-110 on Monday night.

“It just shows who we are,” said Marcus Smart, who scored 18 points for Boston after sitting out Sunday’s win at Brooklyn, via ESPN. “No matter what we go through, we’re not going to make any excuses. We’re going to continue to play and we’re going to own up to whatever happens.”
