Notebook: Celtics 91, Nets 84


Brian Robb, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Mar 08, 2014 12:09 AM - Updated Sat Mar 08, 2014 12:09 AM

THE FACT: Rajon Rondo set a new career-high for 3-pointers made in a half after sinking all three of his attempts in the first quarter.

THE LEAD: The Boston Celtics overcame a season-high 28 turnovers with strong defensive effort late to defeat the Brooklyn Nets 91-84 Friday night at the TD Garden. Rondo led the way for the hosts with 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, ruining the Boston homecoming for former Celtic Paul Pierce (10 points). Joe Johnson had a game-high 21 points for the Nets, who had their four-game winning streak snapped due to some brutal shooting (36.3 percent) from the field.

QUOTABLE: "We always have room for improvement and this is just another sign that we have to keep working, keep grinding, and understand that we can't take anybody lightly."
-- Nets' head coach Jason Kidd

THE STAT: The Nets couldn't buy a 3-point bucket in the first half. They finished the first two quarters a dismal 0-for-17 from beyond the arc.

TURNING POINT: Brooklyn made things interesting in the third quarter after cutting a 18-point Boston lead to just three in the closing minutes of the period. The Celtics clamped down defensively from there however, limiting the Nets to just one point over the next seven minutes during an 8-1 Boston run.

QUOTABLE II: "Yeah, why not? Maybe play for them, maybe work for them. Who knows what the future holds?"
-- Paul Pierce on potentially returning to Boston in the future

HOT: Rondo came out firing, scoring 13 of the Celtics' 26 points in the first quarter on 5-for-6 shooting from the field.

NOT: Marcus Thornton, acquired from the Kings to provide the Nets with some firepower off the bench, missed all six of his 3-point shots and finished with just two points in 26 minutes on 1-for-9 shooting.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Kelly Olynyk continued his consistent second half of the season, piling up 13 points and seven rebounds off the bench before fouling out in 17 minutes. The seven-footer is averaging 11 points and six rebounds per game since the All-Star Break.

ROOKIE WATCH: Mason Plumlee, filling in for an injured Kevin Garnett (back spasms) for a fifth straight game, provided 10 points and five rebounds, but also turned the ball over a career-high five times.

NOTABLE: Vitor Faverani underwent season-ending surgery Friday morning to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. ... The Nets shot 4-for-30 from 3-point range, the worst shooting percentage by an NBA team with 30-plus attempts in a game in 30 years. ... Pierce was greeted with a standing ovation upon being introduced to the Garden crowd during starting lineups. ... The Celtics led by as many as 18 points in the first half. ... Jared Sullinger had a game-high 12 points off the bench for Boston. ... Brooklyn dropped back down to the .500 mark after the loss. ... Johnson played despite missing the Nets' morning shootaround due to illness.

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Sunday vs. Detroit, Tuesday @ Indiana, Wednesday vs. New York. For the Nets, Sunday vs. Sacramento, Monday vs. Toronto, Wednesday @ Miami.
