Dame finally nets first FG on driving layup with 10:08 left in 3rd. Fouled on play, will go to line for 3-pt play.
On a night of few positives for the Nets, the play of Williams and Garnett were about the only ones. Both looked good.
Five-Star Review: The Nets...oh, oh, the Nets.
"It was like an open gate, and all the sheep got out of the gate," Lionel Hollins said of the Nets' defense. "It was layup after layup."
C's youth beats Nets vets. Energy. Effort. Lionel has work to do. But he knew that.
Lakers, Knicks and Nets lost their openers by how many points combined?
So Nets lose by 16 in Boston. Knicks down by 35 w/ 6 minutes left. The season apparently opened without the New York teams knowing about it
Lionel Hollins on Nets defense: "Gates were open."
Marcus Smart's NBA debut: 10 points, 4 steals, 2 assists, 2 rebounds and a +20 in 28 minutes. Celtics blow out the Nets.
It's a final in Boston. Celtics 122, Nets 105. Rondo finishes with a 13-7-12 line. Eight players in double figures for C's.
That's a wrap on Opening Night. The Celtics crush the Nets 121-105. Olynyk's 19 led 8 C's in double-figures. Rondo: 13 pts, 12 asts, 7 rebs.
Boston Celtics dominated the Nets - wind up winning 121-105. Rondo - 13, 12 & 7. Brooklyn will be much better once get Brook Lopez back.
Celtics 121, Nets 105. Damn. That was fun.
Celtics entertainment crew breaks out Gino. KG buried in the Nets huddle.
