Celtics outscore Nets, 92-81

As they wait for Kevin Martin to officially don a Celtics jersey, the Celtics, fresh off their win over the defending champs, hosted the Brooklyn Nets and outplayed them for a 2nd straight win against Deron Williams, who poured in 31 points, but missed necessary shots down the stretch.

His supporting cast of Joe Johnson (12 points), Brook Lopez (12 points, 15 rebounds) and Gerald Wallace (15 points) contributed, but failed to outweigh 19 points each from Rondo & Pierce, 10 from newcomer Charlie Villanueva, 12 & 12 from KG and 11 from Kenyon Martin.

Boston simply outscored the visiting Nets, with several more players contributing while Brooklyn's bench failed to answer the call.
