LOOK OUT, young fella! Dunkers in the building!
You know how you were always taught to force your man middle? This is a great example of how that fails to work. Brandon Bass blows by Reggie Evans and into the lane, which generally isn’t a bad thing for the defense, but a late rotation by Brook Lopez, who looked as if he had no idea that Bass could dunk, results in Brook paying the ultimate price. He was posterzed!
Bass got the fans on their feet with an electric finish over the 7-footer, and pushed the Celtics’ lead to 15-7 with about 6 minutes to go in the first quarter of Wednesday night’s showdown in the TD Garden, Boston.
Unfortunately the Celtics couldn’t survive and all-out assault from the Nets, as their three star players notched more than 20 points a piece and led Brooklyn to the 101-93 road victory over their divisional rivals.
Deron Williams led the way for BK with 29 points and 12 assists, while Lopez chipped in with 21 and Joe Johnson added 20 in the win. Brandon Bass finished with 10 points in 26 minutes, and Paul Pierce had 23 points on the night.
