After drubbing by Warriors, Boston shows up and beats Brooklyn 91-84

Whatever coach Brad Stevens said to his team between the 108-88 beat down at the hands of Golden State Wednesday and his team's next game against the Nets, it seems to have worked.

Boston (21-41) came out looking to battle and ended up victorious with the 91-84 win.

Who would have thought Rajon Rondo would have almost as many three pointers as the entire opposing team? Especially against a team full of gunners like Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce and Marcus Thornton. But that's exactly what Rondo did Friday, shooting 3-6 from deep compared to the Nets super-atrocious 4-30 shooting from deep.

Rondo finished with 20 points, nine assists, seven rebounds and four steals. Jeff Green chipped in with 15 points, Jerryd Bayless had 14 points as the starting off-guard, Kelly Olynyk had 13 points and seven rebounds and Jared Sullinger had five points and 12 rebounds off the bench.

For Brooklyn, Pierce, in his second game ever as a member of the opposing team in Boston, had 10 points, Johnson had 21 points and seven rebounds and Williams had 20 points.

Boston looks to keep the momentum going against the Pistons on Sunday.
