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 at 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 attck 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.
