The Celtics Bringing Out Brooms?
Even though they were championship favorites at one point in the sportsbook, the Brooklyn Nets are likely not making it out of the first round. The Boston Celtics have dominated this series, from any and every angle thus far.
Boston goes for a four-game sweep after disposing of homestanding Brooklyn, 109-103, a few nights ago. The Nets were hoping to get Ben Simmons back from his injury, but he has been ruled out…again.

Celtics Shouldn’t Change Anything
Making timely adjustments is important factor in any playoff series. The Celtics have won that battle.
Jayson Tatum scored 39 points in Game 3, complemented by Jaylen Brown’s 23. Flipping over to defense, Boston has found success against Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, each limited to just 16 points in Game 3. Boston will just need to continue using those same tactics to frustrate the marquee players on the Nets.
Star Players Aren’t Playing Well For Nets
Outside of Irving’s 39-point explosion from Irving in Game 1, both he and Durant have been quiet in this series. Durant limited to just 11 field-goal attempts and Irving missing all seven of his three-point attempts did not help.
Brooklyn shouldn’t be relying on Bruce Brown (26 points in Game 3) to be a top scoring option on the roster Unless Durant and/or Irving suddenly figure it out, this series is over for the Nets.
