This is Boston Celtics basketball.

During the fourth quarter of Sunday’s win over the Denver Nuggets, Sixth Man of the Year candidate Evan Turner chased down a ball smacked the length of the floor by Marcus Smart.

Turner’s hustle allowed Avery Bradley to pick up an easy bucket, which extended Boston’s lead to 97-82.

Plays like this are the perfect example of why the Celtics have climbed into third place in the Eastern Conference.
