With Jayson Tatum having 39 points and Jaylen Brown adding 23 the Boston Celtics took a 3-0 and went past the Brooklyn Nets with a glorious win on Saturday night. One more time, things were made difficult for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant with their defense, the Celtics made a spot for them to make their way in the next round in Brooklyn on Monday night.
That won’t be enough to let to get anything going. Durant took 11 shots, ending with 8 rebounds, 16 points, and 8 assists. Irving who was 6 for 17 also had 16 points for his side, the Nets, who need to make up their mind if they will give Ben Simmons a debut in the elimination match. But the game finished with the Celtics scoring 109-113 defeating the Brooklyn Nets.
