It’s Tuesday – most of us are back to work this morning after a LONG weekend, so hopefully, this provides you with some extra energy to commence a four-day work week!
Today is quite cold in Boston – when do the warmer temperatures arrive? – but the good news is a warm-up is coming in a few days, along with some rain this weekend, which should wipe away the remainder of this past weekend’s snowstorm.
As always, have a great day, smile, be kind, and enjoy time with family and friends (if you can!).
The Boston Sports Scoreboard
- Jayson Tatum netted 27 points, while Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker each recorded 20 points, respectively, as the Boston Celtics rolled the Los Angeles Lakers, 139-107, last night at the TD Garden. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Green and White, who return to the court tomorrow (Wednesday, January 22nd) against the Memphis Grizzlies.
- The Boston Bruins will entertain the Vegas Golden Knights this evening with puck drop scheduled for 7 p.m. The Black and Gold enter the contest with a 28-10-12 record (68) points, which is good for first place in the Eastern Conference (Tampa Bay sits behind Boston in second place, while Florida is in third place).
