Glad I finished working just in time for this finish.
Anyone know a good bar in Boston to drown your sorrows? Asking for a friend that is me.
Kevin Garnett said he went to yoga this morning. Joe Johnson was wearing a bracelet postgame that read, "Namaste."
Kevin Garnett channeling Jason Kidd after bad loss: "We did some great things, just not enough to win."
"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."
Mirza played great down the stretch tossing up 3's. Balanced it out. New system. He'll be fine.
Got a few complaints about Mirza's low grade. Look beyond the numbers. Struggled on D in first half, contributed to team's deficit.
Garnett said Rondo was "classy" tonight. "He said he was what, 83 percent? Some 83 percent."
Deron Williams: "Anytime you're giving up that number of layups, effort is a problem."
Garnett says seeing "Gino Time" was "my low point of the night."
Kevin Garnett: "We have to play harder. We have to have more grit."
Taylor Swift cursed New York basketball as we know it
Hollins was asked if biggest issue defensively was communication, effort, execution. "All of the above."
Lionel Hollins on picking up tech: "I was trying to fight for them but they have to fight for themselves."
Hollins said biggest issue defensively was breakdowns in pick-and-roll coverages, which led to plenty of other breakdowns.
Lionel Hollins on Nets defense: "Gates were open."
Lionel Hollins on his technical foul: "I was trying to fight for them, but they have to fight for themselves."
Hard to stop future MVP Kelly Olynyk
Got a weird feeling there could be lots of A-Rod stories in papers during New York basketball season this year
Garnett gets a technical late in the fourth and TD Garden swells with chants of "K.G."
Alan Anderson and Kelly Olynyk get into it. Kevin Garnett called for a technical. Crowd chants, "KG!"
Kevin Garnett hit with a technical foul. Small scuffle between him, Olynyk, Alan Anderson.
Nets proving it’s hard to win in the NBA when athleticism is your weakness.
Jeff Green went down hard after going up for an alley-oop, but just got up and looks fine. Nets trail 110-94 with 5:34 left.
MIRZA GOIN FULL MIRZA
Correction: Smart got a hand on the ball. Nice play by the rookie.
Deron Williams just crossed himself up and it led to a layup for Marcus Smart.
Deron Williams back in to start the fourth, along with Jarrett Jack, Alan Anderson, Mirza Teletovic and Cory Jefferson.
Kelly Olynyk just hit a twirling baseline floater at the third quarter buzzer to give the Celtics 101 points.
End of third quarter. Celtics 101, Nets 72. You can turn off the game.
And a Kelly Olynyk turnaround jumper at the buzzer makes it 101-72 Celtics here after three. Will be surprised if any starters play in 4th.
Make it five times.
I’ve thought the Nets hit rock bottom four times tonight.
Knew the Nets were going to miss Shaun Livingston on defense but. ...Celtics have 95 points with 1:23 remaining in the third.
Nets close to allowing 100 points in three quarters.
Whole lot of standing around for the Nets on offense right now.
Nets going super-small now: D-Will, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Kirilenko, Teletovic at 5.
Rondo has 11 points and 11 assists midway through the third.
Just when it looked like the Nets might get back in the game, a quick five points for Boston – including a banked-in Rondo 3 – has C's up 24
Rajon Rondo just banked in a three.
Rondo just tilted Deron Williams off the dribble.
Nets have come out much better in the third quarter, but we'll see if they can find a way to claw their way back into the game.
Nets are 10% on 50-50 plays.
Nets get five quick points to open the third on a leaning jumper by D-Will and an open 3 from Bogdanovic.
The Celtics media room doesn’t serve scotch so I am drowning my sorrows in Skittles.
Through the first half, Nets have more turnovers (10) than assists (9).
Trying to watch three things at once is tough, but I think Taj Gibson just drove in Alex Gordon with a fly ball to Rajon Rondo
Celtics lead 67-41 at the half after about as rough a 24 minutes of basketball as you could see from the Nets.
Deron Williams made a nice drive to the rim, and then his finger rolled bounced straight off the front of it. Sums up the night so far.
Nets are playing so bad. Celtics 60, Brooklyn 41.
Mason Plumlee gets a quick hook. Jerome Jordan getting playing time in both quarters.
Mason Plumlee back to the bench for Jerome Jordan. Rough night for him so far.
Is this bad defense please advise http://t.co/9MboQRjTZL
Nets playing like they are pregnant
The Celtics have 32 points in the paint in the first 21 minutes.
Lionel Hollins gets a technical for getting on the refs.
