The Boston Celtics are calling last night's 112-104 win in Utah perhaps their most impressive win to date. Balanced scoring, good defense and all of it while the team is still playing shorthanded.

No Jae Crowder who is dealing with a family matter. No Avery Bradley who is dealing with a foot injury.

No matter.

The Celtics shot 59% from the floor and hit 13 three-pointers agains the Jazz.

Isaiah Thomas led the C's with 29 points but there was lots of balance. Kelly Olynyk with 19. Al Horford and Gerald Green with 16. Marcus Smart and James Young with 10 each.

The Celtics are now 35-19. The 16 games over .500 is the high water mark of the season.

Next it's at Dallas to play the Mavs Monday night. The game is live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket starting at 8pm.
