After the C's saw their large lead sliced to just four on Monday, it would have been easy to fold. They chose not to: on.nba.com/1H3mCaQ

Celtics’ Marcus Smart returns to team after cousin’s funeral bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/01… via @BostonGlobe

Gary Washburn

X-rays negative on Evan Turner's rt thumb, said he re-sprained it. "Same thing happened three times accidentally by the same dude." #Celtics

Gary Washburn

I think 3Pac as a nickname for James Young may gain some traction #celtics

Ben Rohrbach

After hearing a Pats attendant took a sack of balls into the bathroom for 90 seconds, I'm not sure how the NFL keeps a straight face anymore

5 things we learned in C's 99-90 win over Jazz (but mainly why Tayshaun Prince will probable be traded tomorrow): bit.ly/1yoLXRY

Jay King

Bill Belichick returns tomorrow: "I've spent far too much time on an experiment to see how long ballboys take to urinate."

Rich Levine

Biggest X-Factor with this locker room attendant: Stage fright.

Marc D'Amico

Tayshaun Prince: "I came in and told the guys at halftime, 'This game is far from over.'" Prince helped C's get thru rough patches of game.

Jay King

So, the Tayshaun Prince discussion has changed a bit. RT @VinFuria: @Jay King They need to trade him immediately!!! He's too good.

Gary Washburn

Young was 1 year old when Tupac was murdered.

Gary Washburn

A #Celtics fan outside the locker room just told James Young he looks like Tupac. Wow.

Marc D'Amico

Marcus Smart returned tonight and played well after losing a family member this week. He says, "It was difficult, but this is my life."

Jay King

Tayshaun Prince, second-quarter surge lead way as Celtics top the Utah Jazz, 99-90. My recap: masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Marc D'Amico

After winning three of four, Stevens says, "It's been a fun trip to be a part of." Could get even better with another W on Wednesday, coach!

Gary Washburn

Evan Turner is getting his thumb x-rayed #Celtics

Marc D'Amico

Keys to the game, according to Stevens: "I thought our older guys made a lot of really savvy bball plays & our younger guys made some shots"

Chris Forsberg

Celtics win for third time during league’s longest 4-in-5 of the 2014-15 season with 99-90 win over Jazz: es.pn/15EaITC

Marc D'Amico

Brad Stevens on Celtics bench play: "The bench really did its job both times pushing the lead out at the end of the first and early fourth."

Brian Robb

Your leader in points (19), assists (5) and minutes (30) for the Celtics tonight? Tayshaun Prince.

Brian Robb

The Celtics win three games in five nights on the road against the Western Conference after not winning any for 21 months. Sounds right.

Sean Grande

99-90, Boston is the final. Boston Celtics wins in Western Conference cities.. Last five days: 3 Previous 705 Days: 0

Marc D'Amico

The Celtics up their record to 3-2 on the trip with a 99-90 W in Utah. Prince scored 19, while Smart had 9 and 5 asts http://t.co/jYxXda9ZRX

Emily Austen

The #Celtics beat the #Jazz 99-90 (have won 3 of last 4 on west coast trip) Prince w/ a great night (19) Zeller (14) Sully/Bradley (12 each)

Jay King

Not the best second half, but some solid play down the stretch. And what a first half. Celtics at 3-2 out West so far. Wow.

Gary Washburn

#celtics beat #jazz 99-90. Prince 19, Zeller 14; Hayward 26, Kanter 20, Burke 18.

Emily Austen

Tyler Zeller w/ a couple KEY hustle plays for #Celtics down the stretch. That SHOULD seal the deal here in Utah. Boston up 93-84 w/ 48 to go

Gary Washburn

Smart's hustle after Bradley miss results in a dunk and #celtics lead #jazz 93-84 with 47.7 left. Close to clinching at least .500 trip.

Emily Austen

Trey Burke has made three 3s in the 4th. He's also scored 13 of the #Jazz 17 pts this quarter. #watchoutKlay #kidding

Jay King

Yeah. RT @Tom_NBA: Smart keeps helping too far off Trey Burke, and Burke keeps making him pay.

Emily Austen

Weeee I got #aselfieacity in #Utah with Jazz Bear. 🐻 I wonder if @bennythebull is jealous? @ Energy… instagram.com/p/yV-YB3OrUC/

Gary Washburn

Turner is now back on the bench #celtics

A. Sherrod Blakely

Evan Turner's right thumb is in some serious pain. Just headed back to the locker room. #Celtics up 87-77 over #Jazz with 4:50 to play.

Gary Washburn

Evan Turner is laboring with that thumb, forcing #celtics to call timeout. BOS 87, UTA 77 4:50 left.

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #jazz 85-73 with 5:54 left. BOS appears to have settled itself behind Marcus Thorton, who has 9 second-half points. Prince 18.

Brian Robb

Marcus Thornton was only bench player not to play well in second quarter. Making up for it now.

Emily Austen

We're in the final frame! The #Celtics still hold a 77-66 lead over the #Jazz with 9:30 to play!

Gary Washburn

That may have been Marcus Thornton's best pass as a Celtic

Ben Rohrbach

Celtics starters: 35 points (13-32 FG) Celtics bench: 36 points (13-23 FG)

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs clinging to 68-63 lead after 3Q. #Celtics: Prince 16 pts. Zeller 8 pts, 6 reb. #Jazz: Hayward 19 pts. Kanter 18 pts. #Celticstalk

Marc D'Amico

The Jazz have made it a game, but the Celtics still lead 71-66 after 3Q. Prince has 16, Bradley has 12 and Sully has 8 points and 8 rebs.

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #jazz 70-66 after 3Q. Get outscored 35-15 in period. Prince 16, Bradley 12, Zeller 8; Hayward 19, Kanter 18, Favors 13

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Celtics on the short end of a 20-4 #Jazz run as Utah is far more aggressive at both ends of the floor. #Celticstalk http://t.co/VOsm1ZwQ86

Gary Washburn

#celtics score first points in 5:23 on Prince FTs

Kyle Draper

Stevens has been saying all season it's easy to play when you're down 20. Hard part is when you're up 20. #Celtics proving that #CelticsTalk

Jay King

Gordon Hayward is having a ridiculous third quarter.

Jessica Camerato

The fact Vince Carter and Gerald Green were born on the same day is so fitting. Birthday cupcake dunks for all.

Emily Austen

The #Celtics haven't scored in more than FIVE minutes. #Jazz riding an 18-0 run. It's a four-point game.

Gary Washburn

A 15-0 #jazz run and the Celtics are in trouble. 2 for 11 shooting in the quarter

Emily Austen

WEEEEEEE!! It's getting a little heated between Turner and Kanter!!! #Celtics #Jazz

Gary Washburn

Double techs on Kanter and Turner after that exchange #celtics #jazz

Jay King

Oh, how quickly the magic disappears.

Abby Chin

Turner returns. Just had thumb re-taped. But now Avery Bradley shaking his left hand. Stayed in the game. #CelticsTalk

Emily Austen

Ut-oh. The #Jazz on a nice little 11-0 run here to start the 3rd. #Celtics still lead 60-49.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Not sure why Jae Crowder isn't guarding Gordon Hayward now. Of the guys who have guarded him tonight, JC has done the best job. #Celticstalk

Gary Washburn

An 18-5 #jazz run and the #celtics look a mess right now.

Emily Austen

Evan Turner went to the locker room at the start of the quarter but just had his thumb re-taped. He's back on the bench for the #Celtics.

Gary Washburn

A 24-point lead is now down to 13 #celtics #jazz

A. Sherrod Blakely

We've seen the #Celtics battle from way down. But it'll be interesting to see how they handle the prosperity of a big lead. #Celticstalk

Gary Washburn

Evan Turner is back on the bench #celtics

A. Sherrod Blakely

Stat of the first half? #Jazz starting backcourt (Ingles and Exum) were scoreless on a combined 0-for-6 shooting. #Celticstalk

Gary Washburn

Evan Turner is headed to locker room, looks like he re-aggravated his right thumb injury #celtics

Abby Chin

Evan Turner heads to the locker room shaking and holding his injured thumb. #CelticsTalk

Abby Chin

Marcus Smart at the scorer's table for an early check in here in the second half. #CelticsTalk

Jay King

The Celtics are 24 minutes of failing to self-destruct away from clinching at least a .500 Western Conference road trip.

Sean Grande

55-31, Boston at the half. 24 is the largest road lead for the Celtics in a Western Conference city since February of 2013 in Phoenix.

Jay King

If I got stranded in Phoenix more often, the Celtics would probably be undefeated.

Jay King

As @celticslife notes, that was a 38-14 second quarter for the Boston Celtics.

Steve Bulpett

Tayshaun Prince with 12 pts in 11 1st half mins v Utah. Hey GMs, Danny Ainge is standing by. #justpayshippingandhandling

Brian Robb

Celtics outscore Jazz 38-14 in second quarter. Easily their best quarter of defense all season. Lead 55-31 heading into halftime.

Jay King

Is it that much of an overreaction to say that first half looked like it could have been Team USA vs. Slovenia or something?

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #jazz 55-31 at halftime. Prince 12, Bradley 10, Smart 7; Favors 8, Kanter 8. BOS: 12-20 shooting in 2Q, UTA 5-17.

Emily Austen

What a half for the #Celtics! Great TEAM basketball. Reminder: It's their 4th game in 5 nights... Boston leads Utah 55-31 at the break.

Marc D'Amico

How about them Celtics?! They're crushing the Jazz 55-31 at the break thanks to Prince's 12 points and Bradley's 10 http://t.co/v7JF0gLPQM

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs putting the smackdown on, lead 55-31 at half. #Celtics: Prince 12 pts. Bradley 10 pts. #Jazz: Kanter 8 pts. Favors 8 pts. #Celticstalk

Brian Robb

One would think C's would be tired for 4th game in 5 nights, but when you go 10 deep and no one plays 30 min/game, you can play like this.

Gary Washburn

#Jazz are 5-for-15 shooting in 2Q with 5 TOs

Jay King

So impressed by the way the Celtics are contesting everything.

Gary Washburn

Ask this every time I"m in Utah: Is Derrick Favors a Buck Williams type, a glue guy but not an All-Star or is he a potential All-Star? #jazz

Jay King

Check out @Abby Chin's timeline for an awesome Old Head G. Wallace story.

Emily Austen

Tayshaun Prince again!! He's 5 of 6 from the field (perfect 2 of 2 from downtown) and has a game-high 12 pts.

Abby Chin

And Avery said to Gerald, "Yeah, like 8 years ago!" #CelticsTalk

Brian Robb

Tayshaun Prince is showing why Danny Ainge didn't want to buy him out just yet. Some contender could use his help off the bench.

Abby Chin

Great moment right now on @CSNNE. Avery Bradley told guys Gerald Wallace was calling for the alley oop on the break... cont'd #CelticsTalk

Gary Washburn

That's 12 points for Tayshaun Prince in 9 min #celtics

Emily Austen

Tayshaun Prince & #Celtics are making it rain in Utah! Boston's outscoring #Jazz 24-9 in the 2nd qtr. It's 41-26 w/ 5:28 left in 1st half.

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Celtics on a 20-5 run, lead 41-26 w/the points being fueled by - what else? - their defense. #Jazz are like ... http://t.co/eepOo5LuyJ

Jay King

That Smart dribble move to create the Sullinger three? That's new. Man, the Celtics are playing well right now.

Abby Chin

#Celtics on 20-5 run. 5-for-9 from 3-point range for the game... not too shabby! Lead the Jazz by 15. #CelticsTalk

Gary Washburn

A 20-5 run for the #celtics. who are 8-for-11 shooting in 2Q. Smart has been stellar so far.

Jay King

Marcus Smart alert.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Tayshaun Prince hit that last 3-ball like it was 2004 or something. #Celtics up 31-24. #Celticstalk http://t.co/m8Hu4WBs92

Jay King

Smart with another all-around game so far. He improves every night.

Gary Washburn

One of the better defensive stretches for the #celtics, they are trapping, active, getting hands on balls, being disruptive.

Jay King

Tayshaun Prince and Gerald Wallace are really playing well as the two forwards?

Gary Washburn

Tayshaun Prince with 9 pts in 6 minutes and just making plays. #celtics have to make a decision about his future.

Sean Grande

Gerald Wallace - First 41 games: 8 points Last 24 hours: 8 points
