Boston stretched the edge to 72-54 at half-time, Brown scoring 20 points in the first half.

Hayward has had some awful luck since signing with Boston two seasons ago.

Hayward spent his first seven National Basketball Association seasons with Utah before joining the Celtics, only to suffer severe leg and ankle injuries in the opening minutes of Boston's 2017-18 season opener and miss the entire remainder of the campaign.

Hayward had nine points and two rebounds before leaving for X-rays that would confirm the injury.

"Going to get with the doctors tomorrow and decide if he needs to do surgery or not", Stevens said. We'll have to hold out to see on the severity of the harm, probably pursuing an MRI, to master of a timetable for his achievable return. He averaged 20.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists in the team's first seven games this season and recently came off a 39-point performance on November 5.

The Blues were excellent in the second half, but manager Frank Lampard will be anxious by his side's defending in the game. The Blues played superbly vs Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday coming back from 4-1 down to draw the match 4-4.

DeMar DeRozan had 22 points for the Spurs (5-4), who trailed by as many as 22 points.

Boston sped up its pace and went on a 19-3 run after giving up the game's first seven points. "So, he'll be back".

Celtics: Center Enes Kanter missed his seventh straight game after suffering a bruised left knee in Boston's season opener.

With or without Kanter, history is not on the C's side in this game, as the Green have not defeated the Spurs in San Antonio since 2011.
