Is there anything Avery Bradley can't do? The kid nailed three three-pointers during a decisive third quarter run that propelled the Celtics to a 92-84 victory in New Jersey.
Bradley (18 points, 7-14 FG) looked like Ray Allen during the 3rd quarter. He'd drift to an open spot, get the ball from Rajon Rondo (15 assists) and nail jumper after jumper after jumper after jumper. Bradley is shooting 55% from 3 this month.
Old man KG had 21 points (8-16 FG) and 12 rebounds. Is this dude ever going to run out of gas? Brandon Bass (18 points, 11 rebounds) was fantastic, too.
Paul Pierce (17 points, 6-16 FG) suffered some type of minor toe injury jammed his left big toe. It's possible he will sit out tomorrow's game in Charlotte. Ray Allen missed his second straight game. He's not expected to play tomorrow.
The Celtics were aggressive on the boards and it paid off. They out-rebounded NJ 51-42.
The team bus didn't arrive at the arena until an hour before tip-off because of traffic.
The Nets Deron Williams had 12 points on 3-12 shooting.
Ryan Hollins was quite efficient, collecting 4 fouls in 2 minutes of garbage time.
After the jump, a couple of highlights worth watching.
