The Boston Celtics just managed to make Brook Lopez look like the best basketball player of all time in their awful loss to the Brooklyn Nets. Sure, the Celtics kept coming back and making the game close but it is kind of ridiculous that they were even losing to the Nets in the first place. The Celtics didn't just lose the game, they also lost Avery Bradley to a hip injury.
The Celtics are still a year or two away from being a real contender in the NBA, but presently they are much better than the Nets. That is what makes watching this team so frustrating, they inexplicably lose games they should win. It doesn't make sense for the Celtics to lose to the Nets, especially at home. While it is true that the Celtics kept coming back, the fact that they were even behind in this game should concern Celtics fans. On a positive note, Marcus Smart played well and the future still looks bright in Boston.
But still... how the hell do you lose to the Nets at home? Yikes.
