On Saturday night, the Boston Celtics secured a 145-113 triumph against the Houston Rockets in Ime Udoka’s return to TD Garden. Holding the leading position in the NBA standings, this victory boosts their overall record to 30-9. Additionally, their undefeated streak on their home court extends to 19-0, marking the franchise’s best start to a season at home.

The focus should be on extracting valuable lessons from Saturday’s game for their championship aspirations and swiftly shifting attention to Monday’s clash with the Toronto Raptors. Unfortunately, Jaylen Brown’s availability for that game is uncertain, as he is listed as questionable due to a right knee hyperextension suffered during the Saturday win. Nevertheless, the two-time All-Star delivered an impressive performance in the game, recording a game-high 32 points along with six rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks.
