The Boston Celtics were able to hold on to the win tonight versus the Utah Jazz with the help of Brandon Bass' timely, clutch shooting in the fourth quarter. Brad Stevens got his first win as a NBA coach with a victory over a team led by Gordon Hayward, a player whom he coached at Butler University just a few years ago.
Brandon Bass led the Celtics in scoring with 20 points and Jeff Green, who didn't play in crunch-time yet again had 18. Gordon Hayward carried the load for Utah with 28 points and 9 rebounds, but it obviously wasn't enough.
Boston Celtics: 97
Utah Jazz: 87
