“To­day, just find­ing his way and do­ing what he does, mak­ing big plays for us, com­ing through and seal­ing the game,” said Celtics cen­ter Al Hor­ford, who had 17 points and 11 re­bounds.

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.

Joe Har­ris scored 19 points and Ron­dae Hol­lis-Jef­fer­son had 16 points and nine re­bounds for the Nets, who are with­out lead­ing scorer D’An­gelo Rus­sell be­cause of a bruised left knee. Allen Crabbe and Caris LeVert added 15 points apiece.

Irv­ing has had to play in a mask be­fore, and he’s done it well. He scored a then ca­reer­high 41 points in a loss at New York on Dec. 15, 2012, while with Cleve­land. But he de­scribed it like hav­ing foggy blin­ders, re­strict­ing his pe­riph­eral vi­sion.

The Celtics started 7 of 9 from the field to lead 17-4, but the Nets jumped ahead in the sec­ond quar­ter and coun­tered every time Bos­ton threated to pull away un­til the fi­nal min­utes.

“I thought guys com­peted,” Nets coach Kenny Atkin­son said. “We just have to do it in long stretches.”

RAP­TORS 129, ROCK­ETS 113

HOUS­TON (AP) — DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points and Toronto built a big lead in the first half and held on for a win over Hous­ton.

James Harden had 38 points and made 19 of 19 foul shots for the Rock­ets, who ended a six-game win­ning streak.

Hous­ton scored six straight points, in­clud­ing three free throws from Harden, to make it 108-103 with about 7 1/2 min­utes left.

Delon Wright made a free throw for the Rap­tors soon af­ter that, and OG Anunoby con­nected for Toronto’s first field goal in more than three min­utes on a 3-pointer with 6:25 re­main­ing. Af­ter Wright’s layup, Kyle Lowry stole the ball from Harden, and DeRozan fin­ished on the other end with a dunk to make it 116-103.

Harden got Hous­ton go­ing again with a four-point play. The free throw was his 19th, set­ting a fran­chise record for most foul shots with­out a miss in a game.

DeRozan and Serge Ibaka had back-to-back dunks af­ter Harden’s big play to make it 120-107 with about three min­utes left and send many of the home fans to­ward the ex­its. SPURS 97, MAVERICKS 91 DAL­LAS (AP) — LaMar­cus Aldridge scored a sea­son-high 32 points in his home­town and San Antonio beat Dal­las.

Gregg Popovich be­came the fastest NBA coach to 500 road wins. He got there in 835 away games, 41 fewer than Pat Ri­ley.

Aldridge, a prod­uct of Dal­las’ Seagov­ille High School, scored eight points dur­ing a de­ci­sive stretch of the fourth quar­ter. Patty Mills added a sea­son-high 19 points for the Spurs.

Rookie Den­nis Smith Jr. led Dal­las with a ca­reer-high 27 points, and J.J. Barea and Har­ri­son Barnes had 16 each. The Mavericks are 2-13 for the sec­ond straight sea­son and fifth time over­all.
