Kemba Walker's 39 points lead Celtics to 121-110 victory over the Nets
Welcome back Kyrie Kemba!
So much for shaking off the rust after having to sit out one game. Kemba Walker exploded for 39 points to lead the way as the Celtics snapped the Kyrie-less Nets 4 game win streak. Jaylen Brown chipped in 22 points. Jayson Tatum and Daniel Theis added 16 and 14 respectively.
Brad Stevens: “Kemba kept us in it in the second quarter.”
Brad Stevens on Marcus Smart’s broom/mop skills: “It’s just another unbelievable quality that we can celebrate and over-celebrate. He’s one of a kind. We knew when that ball got stuck today there was only one man to get it down.”
