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.

BEST OF MAXIM
One of the few good moments for the C's for last night, and it was a really good one.
Jeff Green has been polarizing player for many Celtics fans. Some love him; love the potential, and the flashes of greatness. Some hate him simply because he was the piece we got back for Perkins, and others can’t stand him, think he’s overrated, not that good etc. Coming out of college he was hearing much of the same stuff, even from the NBA coaching circle. Before last night’s...
Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett, disappointed in his last two games since his return from a foot injury that sidelined him for two weeks, says he will get better. Garnett had 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists in the Celtics’ 101-93 loss to the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night.
The post season is right around the corner and the only thing standing between it and the Boston Celtics is a five game stretch. The first of five will be played tonight in Boston when the Brooklyn Nets roll into town. The Nets are coming in following a contest that saw Brook Lopez and Reggie Evans combine for a total of 35 rebounds. With rebounding being anything but Boston'...

Nets 101, Celtics 93
The Celtics are playing better as the regular season winds down, but are they playing well enough to legitimately intimidate playoff-caliber teams? Or just blowing smoke?
All grit and balls? Or all bluster? Kevin Garnett, and his trash-talking antics, are back in the Celtics lineup, and his presence has brought immediate results on the defensive end. While K...
Nets Be Gone
10) Team is no longer as much fun to own, since they are going to the playoffs and people to go games
9) Wants to be the first guy ever to go from owner to agent
8) The rapper had about $300K in value from his shares, or less than he probably walks around town with

The Brooklyn Nets are losing one of their biggest names as they prepare for the playoffs.
Jay-Z owned just a little piece of the team, but was a large presence when the franchise changed homes and identities this season.
The rap mogul is selling his stake in the Nets so he can become certified as a player agent, possibly before the end of the season. The process is underway, with...
The trade deadline has long since passed, and the Celtics are about to embark on their 6th consecutive playoff run. You would think that the team could concentrate on that—rather than yet another round of trade rumors—but you'd be wrong.
Of course now the rumors have shifted from the trade deadline, to the summer. But the names remain the same—mainly future Hall of Famers Paul...
The whole video is worth a watch (If only for the amazing 80's Italian disco), but the money dunk is at the 2:16 mark. I know we have a ton of Celtics fans in Italy. Anyone remember this 1985 Nike exhibition game?
