Jaylen Brown Leads Celtics to Victory Over Short-Handed NetsNovember 11, 2023
The Nets lost to the Boston Celtics 121-107 at TD Garden, dropping to 4-5. Missing Ben Simmons, Nic Claxton, and Cam Thomas, the Nets were unable to keep up with the star-studded Celtics. Boston scored 29 second-chance points and made 19 three-pointers, putting Brooklyn at a disadvantage. Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Jrue Holiday were the standout players for the Celtics. The Nets’ offense struggled without Simmons, managing only 13 fastbreak points. They attempted to excel in halfcourt scoring, but that proved challenging without Thomas. This was Brooklyn’s first game in Boston since last season’s win, and they are preparing for their next games at home.
