The Celtics earned their first win of 2014 Wednesday night by beating the Toronto Raptors, 88-83, snapping their nine-game losing streak. It was the Celtics’ longest losing streak since they dropped a franchise-record 18 consecutive games during the 2006-07 season, Rajon Rondo’s rookie year.
Undrafted rookie free agent Phil Pressey made his first start and finished with 10 assists while helping push the tempo on offense.
But the Celtics (14-26) were carried by Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger. Bradley continued an offensive surge, finishing with 20 points, and Sullinger posted a game-high 25 points and a career-high 20 rebounds.
Sullinger became the first Celtic with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds since Kevin Garnett’s Celtics debut (22 points, 20 rebounds) on Nov. 2, 2007.
