Tatum (26 pts), Brown (21) help Celtics beat Denver 108-95

BOSTON (AP) It's been a long time since Boston fans went home unhappy.

The Celtics remained perfect at home for the season, getting 26 points from Jayson Tatum and 21 from Jaylen Brown to beat the Denver Nuggets 108-95 on Friday night. Boston is 9-0 at the TD Garden, prolonging a city-wide streak in which none of the pro teams has lost a home game in regulation all fall.

"It's a special city to play in and a special city to coach in," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "Our No. 1 objective was to be a team Boston liked. Hopefully we've achieved that."
