Jrue Holliday discussion finalized his place in Celtic

In his return to Los Angeles, Jrue Holiday made an impression with another 20-point performance as the Boston Celtics won two straight games by a combined score of over 140 points.


They defeated the Sacramento Kings 144-119 on Tuesday. They triumphed over the Los Angeles Clippers 145-108 on Saturday


The two-time All-Star pulled down six rebounds and dished out six assists in addition to shooting 8–12 from the field and 4-6 from three.


It was Holiday’s first 20-point performance as a Celtic on Wednesday against Sacramento. That evening, he also came close to recording a triple-double. He then put on another outstanding display, scoring 74 points in total with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.


The former UCLA Bruin discussed how it’s easier for him to compete on the court when he teams up with Boston’s star combination after the win.



“I think with this type of talent, it just makes the game easier,” Holiday stated. These folks have great character, high IQs, and their style of play makes the game so much simpler for me. When JT and JB are on the court, the best players or guards are usually on them, which leaves me vulnerable.”


Due to Kristaps Porzingis and Jayson Tatum’s ankle injuries, the Celtics were shorthanded against the Clippers on Saturday and the Kings on Wednesday. Holiday has been given the chance to establish himself on Boston’s offensive line, and he is becoming more at ease every game.


“I think just consistently or constantly trying to be aggressive, find my spots to kind of look for my shot and play-make,” he stated. “Even before them being out, the coaching staff and Joe (Mazzulla) told me that I need to be aggressive, so, really just trying to find my place.”


The highly anticipated Christmas Day game between the Celtics and the Lakers will tip off at 5 p.m. EST on ABC.
