For Boston, it was a much-needed victory in a game that easily could have been mistaken for one in late May, not mid-November.

IRVING ISLAND: For far too many stretches of play Saturday night, Irving looked very much like a man on an island surrounded by an ocean full of sharks donning Jazz jerseys. Early in the fourth quarter, he got to the rim for a layup; he had a massive dunk to pull Boston to within two with 48.7 seconds remaining in regulation; and he hit a floater in the lane midway through overtime that pushed Boston out to a multipossession lead for the remainder of the game. I felt like we addressed it a couple times.

That aside, the Celtics outscored the Jazz in that second quarter and out-rebounded them the whole game.

Butler received a warm welcome from Philly fans and made a quick impact as the hosts seized a 16-point lead in the first quarter. I know he does, as well.

Some of the help Tatum and Mitchell have gotten has come from each other.

Even with subtle improvements lately, Boston entered the night ranked near the bottom of the league in offensive efficiency (23rd), due in large part to its struggles getting to the basket. Marcus Morris added 11 points and seven rebounds off the bench.

"What he said was real". He said, 'It's not OK.

Homestand over: After playing three home games in four nights, the Celtics depart for Charlotte on Sunday night night and will play the Hornets on Monday night before a Thanksgiving eve home game with the New York Knicks. They didn't allow the Bulls to get ahead, winning by a large margin of 111-82.

"We have to find ways to be good every night, " said Hayward.

But following Saturday's 98-86 loss by the hands of the Jazz, Stevens didn't have any patience for his team's lack of effort and poor execution. They shot just 39 percent from the field, 15 percent from beyond the arc and 55 percent from the charity stripe. Joel Embiid finished with 23 points, seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks for Philadelphia (10-7).
