This Stat Shows Just How Much Celtics Have Dominated Nets Lately

The Celtics must like playing the Nets right now


Feb 24, 2022

The Boston Celtics have played the Nets twice in their last six games and it’s been ugly for Brooklyn both times.

Boston has been one of the hottest teams in the NBA since Jan. 1 — even building a nine-game win streak before the All-Star break — and fortunately has faced a shorthanded Nets squad two times.

In both cases, Brooklyn was without Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden and now Ben Simmons, and the Celtics took full advantage.

The Celtics’ third and 11th biggest leads this season have come against the Nets in the last two matchups, as compiled by Boston play-by-play announcer Sean Grande.

Obviously the Nets haven’t been at full-strength in either matchup, but this certainly is a positive trend for the Celtics.
