Celtics vs. Nets score, takeaways: Boston rallies in fourth to sink Brooklyn, take 2-0 series lead

The Boston Celtics take a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Brooklyn Nets after grinding out a 114-107 win Wednesday night. 

Boston's defense was the difference-maker in this contest, as it made life incredibly difficult for Kevin Durant once again limiting him to shooting just 23.5 percent from the field. 

The Nets took command of this game early on, working up a 17-point lead at one point, but after halftime the Celtics buckled down and began executing on offense.

Jayson Tatum hit clutch shots down the stretch and finished the night with 19 points, 10 assists and six rebounds, while Jaylen Brown tacked on another 22 points in the win. 

It was really a balanced attack from the Celtics as all five starters scored in double figures, and Grant Williams came up big off the bench with 17 points.

The series will now shift to Brooklyn for the next two games, as the Nets try and get back in this series against a dominant Boston team.

His unique combination of size and skill make it so his shot is essentially unguardable as he can elevate over anyone and get a clean look off.
