Celtics Swished by Nets, Fall to 5-3

31 points by Deron Williams and 15+ by both Gerald Wallace and new teammate Joe Johnson silenced any hopes for a comeback by Boston, as the Celtics tried to overcome a lazy defensive effort, aimless focus on rebounding and poor shooting.

In the loss, Paul Millsap (30 points) and Paul Pierce tried to carry Boston on their shoulders, but the Nets were simply too strong down the stretch and the two heroes weren't helped by low scoring from Garnett, Terry and practically everybody else on the visiting squad from Beantown.
