#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Defensive aggressive was good whole first half then we turned it up during 17-1 run to end half.

Jared Weiss

Stevens: Marcus Smart is an impactful guy. #Celtics

Brian Robb

Brad Stevens: "Marcus Smart is an impactful guy defensively and he got his hand on a bunch of balls."

Marc D'Amico

Stevens on 1st half: "Our intensity was really good. Even when we were scrambling… we were doing it hard. We were active… defensively."

Jared Weiss

Stevens didn’t think Rondo’s knee injury was anything too big, so he didn’t take Rondo out. #Celtics

Jay King

Stevens on Rondo's bump: "I didn't think it was serious because he didn't want to come out."

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: It was a great game for us because we did a lot of great things, but we can still do better.

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: we're going to play with great depth and hopefully great effort.

Marc D'Amico

Stevens on Rondo's big night coming off the hand injury: "I thought he played great… (He) kind of fit in seamlessly."

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens: "When we went to the bench, we just kept going, and Rondo fit in seamlessly."

Jay King

Stevens impressed with bench: "Rondo fit in kind of seamlessly."

Jared Weiss

Stevens says he played Rondo in longer stints than he wanted to, but that the bench continued their momentum so well. #Celtics

Brian Robb

Instant reaction from @Tom_NBA after the Celtics eye-opening blowout win. Who stood out?celticshub.com/2014/10/29/rec…

Jay King

Rondo returned in great form as the Celtics smashed Brooklyn in the season opener, 121-105: masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Chris Forsberg

rapid reaction as Celtics put eight players in double figures and roll to 121-105 triumph over Nets in season-opener: es.pn/1p41YPK

Brian Robb

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.

Marc D'Amico

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.

Molly McGrath

Madison Bumgarner enters the game in the 5th inning, hoping for a beer shower later #MADBUM

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs win 121-105. #Celtics: Olynyk 19 pts. Green 17 pts, 6 reb. #Nets: Teletovic 20 pts. Williams 19 pts, 8 assts. #Celticstalk

Scott Souza

#Celtics put up 121 points with eight players in double-figures in 121-105 victory against #Nets in season opener. #oldschoolNBAscore

Gary Washburn

#celtics beat #nets 121-105, Olynyk 19, Green 17, Rondo 13, 12 and 7 rebs. Teletovic 20, Johnson and Williams with 19.

Ben Rohrbach

Celtics 121, Nets 105. Damn. That was fun.

Jared Weiss

KO somehow didn’t travel.

Brian Robb

Avery Bradley with the full-court pressure up 19 with a minute left. Kid loves to play defense.

Ben Rohrbach

I don't know if that was a "We want Wallace" chant in the Garden, but it should've been. #NewScalabrine

Kristina Leahy

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will just never feel right in anything but a Celtics jersey

Brian Robb

Replays just showed Kelly Olynyk and KG getting into it again after that last defensive sequence for Celtics. Olynyk isn't backing down.

Jared Weiss

KG watching Gino Time in opponent’s uniform made the jumobtron malfunction when Gino came on. Not a joke.

Rich Levine

Looks like Garnett just called Olynyk a "chuckin tussy".

Gary Washburn

#celtics now have eight players in double figures

A. Sherrod Blakely

Playing Gino - one of Kevin Garnett's favorite Celtics traditions when he was here, on the inside has to be like ... http://t.co/tLAP3taRWY

Jay King

Can't believe KG was just on the wrong side of Gino time. That should be illegal or something.

Scott Souza

Somewhat fitting #Celtics "Gino Time" returns on KG's return to @tdgarden. But wonder how many fans remember Gino Time, though. #kidstoday.

Jessica Camerato

No one on the Celtics is dancing during Gino Time. Strange to watch. Maybe Pierce will catch the replay.

Chris Forsberg

Gino footage so rusty it just started glitching on the JumboTron.

Steve Bulpett

The Celts being far enoiugh ahead to put Gino on the video board is worse than any elbow KG has ever absorbed.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Gino playing on the Jumbotron now. That's usually when the game is all but decided. We got 2:52 to play, Bos up 17. #thisaintoverfolks

Mark Murphy

Celtics entertainment crew breaks out Gino. KG buried in the Nets huddle.

Marc D'Amico

Gino is dancing on Opening Night in the Garden (!!!), as the Celtics lead the Nets 115-98 with 2:52 left on the clock.

Ben Rohrbach

Gino comes on. KG is not amused.

Chris Forsberg

Gino Time at C's opener. C's up 115-98 with 2:52 to go.

Jessica Camerato

It's Gino Time and KG is on the opposing team. This is kind of awkward.

Scott Souza

#Celtics guard Avery Bradley with 3 as 8 C's are now in double figures for the game. C's up 115-98 w/ 2:52 left. ... And here's Gino!

Jay King

10 Celtics have played. Eight are in double figures. Bass has eight. Zeller has six.

Jared Weiss

KG called for a lane violation. Apparently he does not play for the home team anymore.

Abby Chin

K-G chant breaks out here at the Garden after Kevin Garnett gets slapped with a tech for going at Kelly Olynyk. Who you got? #CelticsTalk

Paul Flannery

'KG' chants for Garnett after getting a technical. I think it was kind of a tribute.

Jessica Camerato

Tech called on KG and Celtics fans start chanting his name.

Jay King

Olynyk and KG get into it a little bit after Olynyk delivers a hard screen. KG hit with a tech. Turner entered the mix too.

Jared Weiss

“KG! KG! KG!” chant after he gets T’d up. #Celtics

Gary Washburn

Olynyk and Garnett get into it and KG picks up the tech #celtics #nets

Jared Weiss

KG gets T’d up. Cannot compute...

Jay King

Looks like Rondo bumped knees. Appeared OK, but exited with 4:41 left. 13 points, 12 assists, seven boards.

Scott Souza

As well as he's played tonight, #Celtics captain Rajon Rondo was looking bit gassed there as he missed 2 FTs, hit 30 minutes. C's up 112-94.

Jared Weiss

#Celtics now with eight players in double figures.

Ben Rohrbach

Rondo is not favoring his knee. Chill. Stevens took him out. Rondo was saying, "I'm fine."

Abby Chin

Looked like Rajon Rondo just bumped knees. Hobbled a bit, but stayed in the game. #CelticsTalk

Jay King

Stevens again going with the Rondo-Smart-Bradley lineup here. Interesting trio. Short, but mighty feisty.

Jared Weiss

Rondo adjusting his left knee brace at the line. He’s limping off it.

Mark Murphy

Rondo pulled up favoring left knee.

Jessica Camerato

Olynyk's hustle performance is going to be overshadowed by Rondo's double-double but it deserves recognition, big strides from rookie year.

Mark Murphy

Rondo three rebounds shy, thus far, of his 30th career triple-double, playoffs included.

Gary Washburn

Jeff Green was down for a moment but back up after a crazy alley-oop attempt from Rondo. #celtics lead #nets 110-94

Jared Weiss

Jeff Green is up after having his manhood put to the test. #Celtics

Emily Austen

Rajon Rondo, who has only participated in 3 full practices this preseason, has 13 pts, 7 rebounds & 12 assists. #TripleDoubleWatch #Celtics

Ben Rohrbach

Is it too early to give Rondo his max deal?

Jared Weiss

Rondo was fully locked into that shot before nailing Bradley with the pass between the legs.

Scott Souza

Marcus Smart's steal and layup makes him the 7th #Celtics player in double figures tonight. Could have 10 before it's over.C's up 106-86.

Jared Weiss

Smart gets beat on the PnR at times, but his presence in the pg’s face is persistent and disruptive.

Brian Robb

Marcus Smart silently having a very good NBA debut. 10 points and 4 steals in 20 minutes thus far.

Jared Weiss

Smart bringing the ball up with Rondo hiding in the weak side corner.

Steve Bulpett

Marcus Smart rips off Deron Williams for 4th steal of game and goes in for layup. I repeat: You're going to love this kid.

Jay King

Marcus Smart picks a Deron Williams crossover, goes the other way for a layup. Man, that rookie can play him some defense.

Jared Weiss

That was Mirza who kicked the ball….

Jared Weiss

Rondo is in and needs 3 reb for his triple-double.

Brian Robb

Rondo might have to start taking the T to the Garden for every game after this performance. boston.com/sports/basketb…

Ben Rohrbach

Can't wait to see how KG reacts when Gino comes on. Hope he tears off his Nets uniform to reveal a Gino t-shirt & retires on the spot.

Tom Halzack

Evan Turner has to stop throwing passes into traffic.

Sean Grande

Boston Celtics 29-point leads at home.. 2013-14: 0 2014-15: 1

Tom Halzack

Celtics motion offense better than Nets no motion defense.

Abby Chin

Wondered if Rajon Rondo would come back into this game... he's at the scorer's table now. #CelticsTalk

Emily Austen

The #Celtics are making everything. Legit.

Brian Robb

101-72 Celtics through 3 quarters. If Rondo doesn't get his triple-double tonight, it will be because of rest during this blowout.

Abby Chin

#Celtics up 101-72 heading into the 4th quarter. First time since Jan. 2009 the Green put up 100 points in 3 quarters! #CelticsTalk

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #nets 101-72 after 3Q. Olynyk 17, Green 13, Rondo 11, 11 and 6. Johnson and Williams 15 each for BRK

Jared Weiss

BORNREADY is limping off the court in Charlotte with the #Hornets down three to the #Bucks.

Scott Souza

Of course that went in. #Celtics center Kelly Olynyk (17 points, 5 boards) hits baseline fader at buzzer as C's go up 101-72 through three.

Marc D'Amico

The Celtics are up to 101 points after three quarters! They lead the Nets 101-72 heading into the fourth. Olynyk's 17 lead 6 C's in dbl-figs

Ben Rohrbach

Olynyk just did his best Bird over the backboard from the sidelines, the Celtics have 101 points in 3 quarters and my mind is blown.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs beatdown continues, up 101-72 after 3Q. #Celtics: Rondo 11 pts, 11 assts. Olynyk 17 pts. #Nets: Williams, Johnson 15 pts each.

Jessica Camerato

The Celtics have scored 101 points in three quarters against the Nets (72).

Jared Weiss

This game is just too good.

Brian Robb

Tonight's goal for the Celtics apparently is making sure everyone on the roster makes a season-highlight type play for the team DVD.

Jay King

We're still in the third quarter. The Celtics have six guys in double figures. Four others have at least six points.

Scott Souza

A four-point play for #Celtics rookie Marcus Smart. Yeah, it's been that kinda night. C's up 99-70 on #Nets late in third quarter.

Jared Weiss

Smart nails three, but hurts foot when Joe Johnson lands on it.

Mark Murphy

Five Celtics in double figures with 1:39 left in third. Two others who will likely get there. 10 have played, seven with 15 or more minutes.
