At Barclays Center, Boston Celtics are fully under the gun by the Net’s wealth of offensive options and lost series. Brooklyn leads for 2-0.
After Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving scored the most important winning points, Joe Harris submerged the Celtics in a storm of early 3-pointers in game 2 on Tuesday night. Incited the fire of victory by leading with 28 points. (Brooklyn 130, Boston 108)The Nets scored in jumping out to a 29-13 lead seven minutes into the game, 11 of their first 14 shots-five of their first six 3-pointers, drive to lead by 24 points at halftime, and 26 points in the first half.
In the first seven minutes, Harris hits all four of his 3-points attempts and shooting 6-of-7 overall to that point. He has 16 of these first 29 points.
Irving said, “Early in the game, you could see that us driving the basketball, collapsing the defense was gonna get guys open shots and Joe happened to be the recipient of a few of those early in the game and created separation and we were able to pace on both ends of the floor after we got it going offensively, so it was good,” he added, “Good night for Joe, good night for all of us to just play off one another and just make easy reads.”
Nets lead rises as high as 95.5 percent from the free-throw line, 44.7 percent from 3-point range, on to shoot 52.3 percent overall for good measure, and scored 33 points in the second half.

“Joe had it going tonight,” said Harden. “We all knew that. Me, KD, and Ky just chipped in where we needed to. But it’s all a team effort. Different games are going to be different guys. Tonight it was Joe. Next game, game three, it could be someone else. We’re just all looked in and on the same page. Whatever it takes to win.”
