The Celtics remained unbeaten since an 0-2 start heading into their showdown Thursday in Boston against the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors. Even though DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry combined to score almost half of the Raptors points, Al Horford, 21 points, led a balanced attack that featured five Celtics scoring in double figures.

Irving sustained a facial fracture when he was caught by the elbow of team-mate Aaron Baynes during Boston's 90-87 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.

Guard Victor Oladipo led the Pacers with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting from the field.

Boston then finally put it away with Jaylen Brown's alley-oop feed to Tatum before Irving hit two free throws to make it 106-96. Allen Crabbe and Caris LeVert added 15 points apiece.

The Celtics play the Raptors later today, before traveling to [gulp] NY to play the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday.

Irving will wear a protective mask for the foreseeable future, which he's done twice before during his career. Coach Brad Stevens said earlier that he, too, was planning on Irving playing tonight.

The Celtics will have Kyrie Irving back on Tuesday night as they go for their 13th straight win. Brooklyn will play Miami and Oklahoma City in December.
