Watch Celtics bench go crazy after Pritchard hits back-to-back 3-pointers originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
The Celtics had a grand time in Portland on Saturday night.
They gave their best offensive performance of the season, shooting 56.3 percent from the floor — including a staggering 56.8 percent rate (21 of 37) from beyond the arc — in a 145-117 road win. Boston’s 145 points scored are its highest total in a game this season.
The real fun came late in the fourth quarter when Payton Pritchard drilled back-to-back 3-pointers in the final two minutes.
The Celtics bench went absolutely crazy after the second 3-point shot. Dennis Schroder was so overcome with excitement that Grant Williams gave him fake CPR.
Check out the hilarious scene in the video below:
Here’s the entire sequence:
The Celtics’ bench was given a technical foul for its actions, which wasn’t too surprising. But that’s a technical foul you’ll take 10 times out of 10.
The C’s resume their Western Conference road trip Tuesday night with a matchup against the rival Los Angeles Lakers.
