Knicks' Knox suffered sprained left ankle vs. Celtics

Jayson Tatum scored all six points for the Boston Celtics in the final minute Saturday night and finished with a team-high 24 points as the visiting Celtics held off the New York Knicks for a 103-101 victory.

"I think if you were in my position, I think it would be an easy decision", Irving said of his decision to commit to the Celtics. The Raptors All-Star point guard took over in the fourth quarter at both ends of the floor, taking his fourth charge of the season and hitting several big shots to ensure that the game stayed just out of reach for Washington. That put Toronto back ahead 109-101 with 3 minutes remaining. There was no whistle, though - except for the technical foul on Beal.

Then Wall and Brooks got into it with the officials, resulting in Brooks' ejection.

Because the No. 9 pick wasn't able to shoot the free throws, he was, by rule, forced to miss the remainder of the game.

The device will run on Snapdragon 845, could be powered by a 3,700 mAh battery and will ditch the 3.5mm audio jack. So OnePlus did the best it could do when dealt with a bad hand - it moved the event up by one day, to October 29.

This was a rematch from the opening round of the Eastern Conference playoffs last season, when the Raptors were seeded No. 1 and eliminated the No. 8 Wizards in six games.

Washington was missing center Dwight Howard, who missed all of training camp with a sore backside. Ian Mahinmi started at centre and did not exactly distinguish himself, accumulating more personal fouls (four) than points (two). Opening the season with three games in four nights, including Friday night's heavyweight bout with the Boston Celtics, it would've been nearly expected for the Raptors to have a let-down game in Washington, especially with Delon Wright still not back from his preseason thigh injury and Kawhi Leonard given the night off for rest.

Through two games, Hayward is averaging 12.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game. "I felt like I was doing that in the first half a little bit".
