While on the bench, Darius Garland missed out on everything, most notably the excitement of participating and achieving victory. As though he had never left, he has returned.

Donovan Mitchell added 25 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Boston Celtics 114-113 in overtime on Wednesday night to extend their winning streak to six games in a row. Garland scored 29 points in his first game after missing five contests with an ugly eye injury. Garland had missed those games due to the injury.

The Cavaliers beat the Celtics for the second time in less than a week, this time with the help of 12 assists from Garland, including an alley-oop to Mitchell in overtime that gave them a 112-109 lead.

After the show, Garland complained about squinting in the arena’s TV studio since he’d forgotten his sunglasses. After an opening-game injury, the 22-year-old still has a swollen, discolored eye on his left side.

Being apart from his beloved Cleveland Cavaliers proved more trying than he had anticipated. We were victorious, and he was pleased, but he wished he could share the excitement on the court with his teammates. Now that I’m here, I can finally relax.

With 1:04 remaining, Jayson Tatum scored to bring Boston within a point, and the Celtics had a chance to win it at the buzzer after some sloppy plays by Cleveland, but Jaylen Brown’s 18-footer hit the back of the net instead.

Brown admitted that he failed to complete the play because receiving the ball was essentially up to him. A good shot can be taken in that time. This gave me a terrific look. That’s a shot you should be able to make.

For the Celtics, who were out for revenge after losing in overtime to the Cavaliers at home the week prior, Brown scored 30 points, and Tatum added 26 points and 12 rebounds. The Cavaliers come back from 15 points down to beat the defending Eastern Conference champions for the second time.
