Boston Celtics win over the visiting Brooklyn Nets on Friday night in the third game of the Eastern Conference first-round series by 125-119. Jayson Tatum scored his career-high 50 points in the playoff and that took the Celtics to the victory. Currently, the series is led by the Nets by 2-1 and the fourth match of the series is scheduled on Sunday night in Boston with a crowd in full capacity.
Nets were led by 41 points from James when he shot 11 of 18 and hit seven three-pointers and with that, he made the franchise post-season record for the three-pointers. Durant gave 39 points to the team. Kyrie Irving had to struggle with his appearance in front of Celtics’ fans since leaving the team in 2019 and he received bad chants all night.
