It was a reasonably close very first quarter, however eventually, Jayson Tatum triumphed with an 18-16 lead over his Brooklyn Nets challenger — as in all 5 of them who were on the flooring Wednesday night. It was a pity for Brooklyn, then, that Tatum has colleagues.

Factor in the rest of Tatum’s Celtics lineup, and Brooklyn was entirely devitalized. After 12 minutes of play, the Celtics led the Nets 46-16. It was the greatest first-quarter lead in Celtics history, and the second-worst quarter ever played by the Nets, and you’ll be shocked to hear that things didn’t get far better from there. The last was an embarrassing 139-96.

Despite their massive lead, the Celtics handled to win each of the 4 quarters. No Net scored more than Kyrie Irving’s 20 points. Tatum and Jaylen Brown integrated for 57 in 61 minutes on the court.

Their combined efficiency produced a bit more history. Both of Boston’s leading stars scored a minimum of 25 points, the 27th time this season that they have actually done that, making it the very first time colleagues have actually done that that sometimes beyond the All-Star break, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

The success is the most recent in a growing pattern in between Boston and Brooklyn. The Nets have not beaten the Celtics considering that Nov. 24, 2021. If you consist of the playoffs, the Celtics have actually now beaten the Nets 10 times in a row. All 3 Boston triumphes this season have actually visited double digits. Kevin Durant might have been out for this one, however losing by 43 is unsightly no matter who you place on the flooring.
