BROOKLYN — The Nets avenged their loss from Wednesday night at TD Garden with an impressive performance against the Celtics that was led by Spencer Dinwiddie’s offense and Brooklyn’s collective team effort on the defensive end of the floor.
Celtics fans at TD Garden didn't get the chance to see the showdown they had been waiting for since the summer but that didn't stop the much anticipated drama between them and Kyrie Irving Wednesday night.
Danny Ainge is not winning many popularity contests in Boston as of late, especially after admitting he believed Kyrie Irving should have a tribute video this past week. Now you can also add the regret of not making any roster moves during the infamous 2018-19 Celtics season to the list.

The Celtics looked to end their five-game west coast road trip on a high-note when they entered the Pepsi Center on Friday night, as they rallied back from a 19-point deficit after watching Kemba Walker get carted off on a stretcher.
When the Celtics topped the Mavericks for their eighth straight win last Monday, Jayson Tatum made a trip to the Auerbach Center -- the team's practice facility -- just before midnight for a postgame shooting session.
When Marcus Smart saw his potential game-winning floater bounce four times towards the front of the rim just before it slid off, Buddy Hield punched the ball with enthusiasm as the game clock expired, ran down the floor, and with the ball still bouncing alongside his foot, punted it into the stands for good measure.
In the last five-plus years, whenever Boston faced the Warriors on the road it was must-see TV. Friday night at the new Chase Center was no different, despite Golden State being undermanned, the Celtics had to work for their tenth straight victory beating the 2018 champs, 105-100.

Isaiah Thomas came into TD Garden looking to snap his former team's eight game win streak and hand them their first home loss of the season, instead he only got a deserving standing ovation in defeat, as the Celtics beat the Washington Wizards 140-133 on Wednesday night.
In the Celtics first game since Gordon Hayward fractured his left hand, Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown once again took on more offensive responsibility, as Boston beat the Dallas Mavericks 116-106 to remain undefeated at TD Garden.
Celtics second-year center Robert Williams III, has already established himself as an elite shot blocker. At 6-foot-8, with a 7-foot-6 wingspan and seemingly unlimited athleticism, his primary value on the court is to be a rim protector.
Gordon Hayward was having the best start since signing with the Celtics in the summer prior to the 2017-18 season, only to have another setback, as he suffered a left hand fracture late in the second quarter of Boston's matchup against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday.

The tension between Miles Bridges and Marcus Smart reached its way to sports fans' favorite social media site -- Twitter -- during Thursday night's Celtics win and eventually triggered responses from the Hornets forward.
It was less than a year ago when Marcus Smart was inserted into the Celtics starting lineup. The team had gotten off to a rough 10-10 record to start the 2018-19 season, and it didn't take Brad Stevens long to make an adjustment.
After six games into the 2019-20 season, the Celtics are 5-1 and currently on a five game winning streak, while Daniel Theis and Robert Williams III have held it down for Brad Stevens at center so far.
Before Friday night's win against the Knicks, Brad Stevens entered the Celtics' brand new press conference room at TD Garden and was asked to assess his team's performance under its four-game microscope, prior to tip-off.
For Jayson Tatum, Friday at TD Garden is a night he will never forget.
After his former teammate, Marcus Morris, drained a game-tying 3-pointer with 4.7 seconds left, Tatum found the bottom of the net off a fade-away jump shot to cement his first career game-winning shot that sealed a 104-102 Celtics win over the Knicks. It was a fitting ending for the two.
