Raptors vs. Celtics live updates, highlights

Final: Celtics 104, Raptors 88

The Raptors made a few spirited pushes but never got over the hump as the Celtics' balanced scoring attack proved to be too much to handle. Boston finished with six different players in double figures, led by Jayson Tatum's 22 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. Robert Williams dominated inside with 16 points and 13 rebounds, while Dennis Schroder chipped in 20 points.

Toronto got 21 points, seven boards and four assists from Scottie Barnes, as the rookie continued his strong play. Fred VanVleet (16 points), OG Anunoby (14 points) and Gary Trent Jr. (14 points) all added in double figures, but the foursome couldn't keep up with the Celtics production across the board.

Consecutive turnovers by the Raptors dug a deeper hole, as the Celtics' 11-point lead turned into 15 quickly to seemingly put the game away.

Do the Raptors have another run in them? They cut the Celtics lead to just eight early on in the quarter, but again find themselves trailing by 11 with six minutes to go in the game .

End of third quarter: Celtics 80, Raptors 68

Even with the Raptors push of energy to start the quarter, they weren't able to chip into the Celtics' lead much. Boston leads by 12 with six different players notching double digits in scoring. Toronto is trying to keep up offensively, but cold 3-point shooting (5-for-21 3PT) is preventing them from cutting into the deficit.

The Raptors keep chipping away at the Celtics lead but they can't get over the hump just yet. Boston still leads 75-64 with 2:52 to play in the quarter. Scottie Barnes and Jayson Tatum are dueling, with Tatum's 16-points leading the Celtics and Barnes' 17 points leading the Raptors.

The Raptors came out of halftime with a burst of energy, going on a 9-4 run to cut the Celtics' lead to 11 at 66-55 . Scottie Barnes is putting together a strong performance with 15 points, six rebounds and three assists.

Halftime: Celtics 62, Raptors 46

Although Jayson Tatum is shooting 4-for-13 from the field, he's filling up the stat sheet with 11 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. The Raptors have had no answer for Robert Williams, who has 14 points and nine boards while shooting 7-for-8 from the field - all of which have been dunks or putbacks.

Scottie Barnes (13 points) and Fred VanVleet (10 points, four assists) are pacing the Raptors' offence, but Toronto is struggling to get stops on defence. Pascal Siakam had a quiet first half, only scoring four points on four shots.

Robert Williams' size is proving to be too much to handle. The Celtics lead 54-42 with 2:19 left in the frame .

Malachi Flynn was assessed a flagrant one for a foul on Marcus Smart on a fast break. The Celtics lead the Raptors 46-35 with just under six minutes remaining in the half.
