Cs drop a key game in the race for home court, lose to Nets 110-96
In what can only be described as a scheduled loss of dubious value, the Boston Celtics dropped a game to the Brooklyn Nets tonight, losing 110-96.
Boston, who elected to rest both Kyrie Irving (back) and Al Horford (knee) despite being neck-and-neck with the Indiana Pacers in the seeding race for home court with their likely first-round opponents, led anyway for much of the first half.
Wanamaker fouled out in 13 minutes. Stevens was trying to play him more tonight. Can't blame him for Wanamaker fouling out.
That said, I'd like to see Stevens give Wanamaker some more minutes over the next week and a half. Rozier has been rough. Really, really rough. https://t.co/dLNF9mSW9v
D'Angelo Russell erupting for 20 of his 29 points in the third quarter turned the tables and gave the Nets the lead for good, and Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown going for a combined 7-of-28 from the field basically shot the Cs out of the game.
