celtics: Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets: Celtics lose to Nets despite having a 28-point lead, next up New York Knicks. Key takeaways

Boston Celtics lost against Brooklyn Nets on Friday, falling short 115-105 after holding a 28-point lead at the half. Celtics will play New York Knicks on Sunday, hoping to avenge their defeat at Madison Square Garden only last week and the outcome on Friday against Nets.

The takeaways are listed below:

If the Celtics’ worst games this season were ranked, Friday’s contest may be wedged between their defeat to the Thunder by a score of 150–117 and their loss to the Bulls earlier in the year, when Chicago overcame after falling down by 19 points to win by 18 points.

The Celtics defeated the Mavericks by over 30 points on the road the following game, though, following their defeat to the Thunder. That was a terrific statement victory, demonstrating the Celtics’ understanding of how absurd it was to concede 150 points to a lottery club that didn’t even have its greatest scorer available.

Even though they have an effect on standings, bad defeats do happen and are often not season-defining. The Bucks probably won’t keep winning every game the rest of the way. The Celtics must (and can) win some games to maintain themselves in the running for the top seed, which would avert Milwaukee hosting a potential Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Celtics’ coach Joe Mazzulla wants them to make more 3-pointers than that, though. Because of shot selection and the capacity for runs, he views the 3-point percentage as “the most essential metric in the game of basketball.”

The Nets attempted 44 3-point field goals on Friday, compared to the Celtics’ 30 attempts. Both teams had a field goal percentage of 31 percent, but the Nets produced 18 more points from beyond the arc.

Final stats for Jaylen Brown were 35 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals, and 15-for-27 field goal and 3-for-8 three-point shooting.Brown said that the Celtics messed up Friday’s game.

These Are Top 10 Highest-Paid Footballers In The World

These Are Top 10 Highest-Paid Footballers In The World

Cristiano Ronaldo

The former Manchester United star recently joined Al-Nassr FC and became the highest paid footballer of all time. The contracts offer him $210 million per annum.

Kylian Mbappe

The number 2 on the list, Mbappe represents Paris Saint Germain and France National team.
He earns around $128 million before taxes and agents’ fees.

Lionel Messi

Just behind his PSG teammate, the GOAT’s income is $120 million which saw a whopping increase of 20% after his world cup triumph.

Neymar Jr

With an income of $87 million, Neymar jr. comes 4th in the list. The former Barcelona star earns $25 million from brand endorsement and released his documentary on Netflix recently.

We committed 19 turnovers; once you commit that many, it usually means that you were a little sloppy with the ball, according to Brown. We should have continued playing the entire game, but we didn’t since they took more shots than we did.

Robert Williams’ decision to leave the game in the second half and head directly to the locker room was troubling. Williams was later listed as being sidelined with hamstring soreness by the Celtics.

Williams and Joe Mazzulla were not yet in contact, according to Joe Mazzulla.

The Nets have dropped seven of their past ten games despite trading away their entire roster at the trade deadline. They have few stars on their squad, but a lot of good role players.

Yet Mikal Bridges, a recent signing, is showing excellent early results. Bridges finished with 38 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists on 13 of 22 field goal attempts. Prior to Friday’s game, Bridges had only scored 30 points twice in his career, but since joining the Nets, he has already scored 45, 31, and 38. The Nets look to have acquired a great player with the opportunity to develop into a bigger role when you combine his obsessional (and amazing) availability with his defense.

Bridges’ blitz of layups, jumpers, and 4-for-6 3-point shooting destroyed the Celtics. Bridges was asked by a reporter if reaching so many goals after only reaching 30 once or twice in his career was especially fulfilling or weird.
