Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum helped the Boston Celtics outlast the Golden State Warriors 111-107 on Tuesday in San Francisco.

Walker responded after one of the worst performances of his career with 19 points while Tatum had a team-high 27.

In the opener of a five-game trip that followed a tough 96-95 home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday, the Celtics used a 15-2 fourth-quarter burst to turn a 94-91 deficit into a 10-point lead with four minutes remaining.

Jaylen Brown finished with 18 points, Williams 15 and Tristan Thompson 13 for the Celtics, who had lost two straight and were playing without Marcus Smart, who injured his calf in Saturday’s loss.

Stephen Curry hit seven 3-pointers on a 38-point night for the Warriors, who lost for the second time in their past three games.
