Winning is just a little bit easier when you nail 12 more threes than your opponent, a fact the Celtics proved on Monday. They walked away with a 105-96 victory over Toronto.

The Celtics relied on the efforts of Jayson Tatum, who dropped a double-double on 19 points and 14 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday, who scored 22 points along with seven assists and six rebounds. As a matter of fact, that’s the most points Holiday has scored all season.

Meanwhile, the Spurs and the Hawks couldn’t quite live up to the 246-over/under that the experts had forecasted. San Antonio fell 109-99 to Atlanta on Monday. The Spurs have now taken an ‘L’ in back-to-back games.

The Spurs’ loss came about despite a quality game from Victor Wembanyama, who dropped a double-double on 26 points and 13 rebounds. Wembanyama hasn’t dropped below ten rebounds for four straight games. Less helpful for the Spurs was Devin Vassell’s abysmal 0-5 three-point shooting.
