Game highlights below from the Celtics win over the Hawks on Friday.

Terry Rozier suffered his first career start without a triple-double, but scored a career-high 31. Rozier also nearly led the team in rebounds (7), falling just short of Aron Baynes’s 8.

Jaylen Brown scored 19, including two “Dr. Jaylen Brown” visits to the rim. No word on whether either ranked above a “5” on Brown’s own high-standard ranking scale.

Jayson Tatum continued to break through the rookie wall, shooting 11 of 19 for a career-high (so far) 27 points. Two of those points came on a beautiful fast break pass from Brown that had Celtic fans looking both back 50 years, and ahead 20.

Daniel Theis didn’t put up big numbers. As is often the case, though, he made several key hustle highlight plays against the Hawks. And took a lob-city throwdown from Rozier.

Scary Terry

Note the hashtag from @Celtics on this one. As if in answer to our cri de couer of Wednesday, it’s official: Scary Terry. (Proof positive that Danny Ainge is an avid Celtics247 reader, given our recent pleas to canonize the GOAT nickname.)

Terry Rozier feeling it early:

Dr. Jaylen Brown. We repeat: Dr. Jaylen Brown

A combination Celtics fans hope to see through, oh, about 2036: Brown to Tatum.
