Tuesday was a great night for Caris LeVert.
And it very much was at the expense of the Boston Celtics.
The Celtics blew a 21-point second-half lead to the Brooklyn Nets at TD Garden, thanks in large part to a 51-point fourth quarter from the Nets that forced overtime. Brooklyn ended up claiming the extra period, beating the C’s 129-120.
LeVert ended up dropping 51 points in the win, a whopping 37 of which came in the fourth quarter and overtime. So good was he, that he outclassed the Celtics in about every way in the final 17 minutes.
