The Nets shot the lights out in the first quarter. Most of the Celtics (Rondo excepted) were playing like a team that just had 5 days off (rusty). So the home team found itself down 10 points after the first. However, the 2nd unit turned things around in the 2nd quarter and entered the half up 7.
The Nets made it interesting, but the Celtics held them off.
In scoreboard watching news, the Magic came back to beat the Griz.
