This series is going 7-games. I said that before it even started!(I’m lying) But, I’m hoping this joint does go the full 7-games. This is definitely going to be the most exciting and competitive 1st round series….in my humble opinion. I don’t expect K.D. to have the same type of game-2 as he had this afternoon, when he was held to 23 pts in the 114-115 Nets loss. Kyrie led the way for the Nets with 39 pts, but they didn’t get much help from anyone else. Goran Dragic dropped 14 points off the bench and Claxton added 13 pts and 8 rebounds in the loss.
Jason Tatum led the way for the Celtics with 31 pts and 8 ast. Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart dropped 23 & 20 respectively. And Al Horford’s 20 pts & 15 reb. performance was a very nice surprise gift for the winners. I expect the Nets to bounce back in game-2 and head home to Brooklyn tied up at 1 apiece.
