Boston Celtics improved to 9-6 after winning in Brooklyn! It was 3rd straight win for the Celtics as they are finally healthy. Isaiah Thomas was once again the best scorer on the team with 23 points on 5/9 from the 3-pt line.
Avery Bradley scored 22 points, showing some great plays around the basket. He also added seven rebounds and season-high five steals. Bradley continues to have a great year, although he's not as hot as he has been at the start of the season.
Al Horford posted another solid game as he finished with 17 points (including 3/4 from the 3pt line!), eight dimes and two blocks for the Celtics. Horford is a big contributor for Celtics offense and he just makes plays. Everything is better with him on the court.
Jae Crowder played his best game since returning to the court from the ankle injury, finishing with 15 points and five rebounds. It was possibility for Crowder to sit this one out as he's still not feeling 100 percent healthy but on Wednesday he was looking quite good, making some important shots in the 4th quarter.
Marcus Smart scored only four points but he did have impact in every other aspect of the game, adding eight dimes, eight boards and two steals on the night. His intensity and defense makes Celtics better and his playmaking ability is improving game-by-game. Now let's just hope he can knock down some more shots!
Celtics defense is finally getting back on the track. It helps that Horford and Crowder are back but the defense got better even before their returns. Boston forced the Nets to commit 19 turnovers and Celtics as a team had 13 steals and six blocks. Nets also needed 86 shots to score 92 points. Check out some best defensive highlights from Wednesday's game!
