Jayson Tatum had 31 points and five assists for the Boston Celtics, who beat the Detroit Pistons 128-112 on Wednesday for their fourth victory.

Jaylen Brown had 30 points and seven rebounds. Sam Hauser set a career-high 24 points off the bench for Boston, which hasn’t scored fewer than 109 points in any of its wins this season.

After scoring only five points in a quiet first half, Tatum had 16 in the first five minutes of the third period to help the Celtics take control.

He also got his classmates involved. At one point he sent a pass from behind to Al Horford, who hit a 3-pointer from the corner. Boston took an even 16-point lead in the period.

The Celtics were up by 24 in the fourth quarter.

Jaden Ivey had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Pistons, who have lost four of five games.
