Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger bounced back from their benchings with solid performances. But the Celtics couldn't top Kevin Garnett and his Nets.

How close was it?  This close. (hat tip @MrTrpleDouble10)

Jarrett Jack had a healthy 27 points to lead all scorers and Tyler Zeller missed a double double by 1 rebound (14 pts. 9 reb.).

The Celtics initially ran with a nine-man rotation, but Brandon Bass made a fourth-quarter appearance. Gerald Wallace came in late for the full-court heave to Sullinger. Phil Pressey was a healthy DNP.
