Boston win streak snapped at 3 as Nets defeat Celtics 123-104

Last postseason the very injury riddled Celtics lost to the Brooklyn Nets in 5 games. Tonight Boston was close to full strength and Brooklyn was of course playing without Kyrie Irving, but the Nets showed that the Celtics weren't at their level for four quarters.

The Nets had a balanced scoring attack with Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Patty Mills all scoring over 20. Mills actually was the game high scorer with 23.

Both Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown struggled from the floor, shooting a combined 9 for 31 and only scoring 28 points combined. Marcus Smart led the Celtics with a team high 20 points and 8 assists.

This concludes the Celtics four game homestand and they will spend tomorrow with their families before heading off to face the Spurs in San Antonio on Friday. The Celtics record now stands at 10-9.
