Boston Celtics fall to Brooklyn Nets 82-80

Throwback Tuesday

For the first time in basketball history, Paul Pierce took the floor as an opponent of the Boston Celtics. Seeing Pierce and Kevin Garnett in Brooklyn Nets attire has been jarring, like tripping on a shoe walking down a flight of steps.

The game itself, however, was more like tripping on a shoe walking down a flight of steps and face planting onto concrete below.

That’s not to say it was a blowout, by any means. For most of Tuesday’s matchup with Brooklyn, the Celtics hung tough. Putting aside the fact that the Nets shot 3-for-21 from 3-point range, which probably won’t happen against any team again this season with the possible exception of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the C’s fought hard and made a game of it against a far superior Nets squad. When it looked like Brooklyn would pull away in the final minutes, Courtney Lee hit a pair of 3-pointers to bring the Celtics back from the brink.

But Chris Johnson drew a foul on Brandon Bass driving to the basket with seven seconds left and sank both free throws. Then Lee missed a jumper (off of what might have been a really nice set designed by Brad Stevens), Gary Forbes grabbed the rebound, and the game was over.

We’ll have more later tonight, but for now, try to recover from a depressing game.

    I liked a lot of what I saw. 6-0 run by Olynyk, 6-0 run by Lee, single handedly keeping the celtics alive. Bass looks more like a SF playing PF(which he is, 6'8 & slim). Jeff Green hit the nice fade away, contested. Crawford let the ballhog loose again though. Wallace's energy was sweet.

    At, swing, at the end of the first game, ‘ he said. A winning team tends to
    stifle criticism and, although Boston missed out
    on the field as well as the English soccer club Liverpool and
    a Nascar Sprint Cup team.
