Brooklyn Nets push hopeless Boston Celtics to the end with over 140 points

The Brooklyn Nets prove the full potential of their Big 3 against the Boston Celtics and increase to 3-1 in the series with a 141: 126 win. Kyrie Irving was much better at TD Garden after his bad game 3.

Boston Celtics (7) – Brooklyn Nets (2) 126:141 (BOXSCORE), Serie: 1-3

With 39 points at 11/23 from the field, 6/11 from Downtown and 11/11 free throws, Irving was not even the top scorer of his team. Kevin Durant gave the Celtics 42 points in 20 field throws and played 5 assists, he also did not miss the chance for constant trash talk.

James Harden directed the Nets offense with 22 points (8/12 FG) and 18 assists, Joe Harris (4/5 3P) and Bruce Brown were also in a good mood with 14 points each. Brooklyn hit 57.8 percent from the field and 59.3 percent (16/27) from a distance.

So despite 40 points and strong odds from Jayson Tatum (10/22 FG, 3/7 3P, 17/17 FT), Boston was early behind a deficit, Evan Fournier (5/15 FG) and Marcus Smart (4/12, 9 assists) were inefficient on the way to 16 points each.

The omens were even worse for Boston than in the previous games, as Kemba Walker and Robert Williams III were both reported as inactive before the start of the game. Romeo Langford replaced Walker in the starting lineup and got 9 points at 2/6 FG.

Head coach Brad Stevens brought players like Aaron Nesmith (11, 3/5 3P), Jabari Parker (10, 6 rebounds) and Semi Ojeleye (1) looking for a boost in the first quarter.
