Nets 101, Celtics 93

Celtics can’t contain the Nets

Fourth quarter, 5:17, Nets 93-82: The Celtics are trying valiantly to rally but they can’t put together enough scoring possessions and then defensive stops. Deron Williams just hit a jumper in the face of Jordan Crawford for his 25th point on 8-for-17 shooting with 12 assists and 4 rebounds. Paul Pierce has 23 points but no other Celtic has more than 11.
