More to come. A previous version of this story follows.
The opening chapter of the much-anticipated first-round NBA playoff series between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets lived up to the hype and then some.
Game 1 on Sunday afternoon was an instant classic. A thrilling fourth quarter ended with one of the Celtics' best defensive possessions of the season and a game-winning layup by Jayson Tatum at the buzzer.
Boston led by 11 points entering the fourth quarter in Game 1, but the Nets stormed back, led by Kyrie Irving's 18 points in the quarter (39 overall). The Celtics' late-game execution was fantastic
If the Nets are going to tie the series Wednesday night in Game 2, they'll need a much better performance from Kevin Durant. The superstar forward scored 25 points on just 9-for-24 shooting in Game 1. The Nets were outscored by 13 points when Durant was on the court, and he also committed six turnovers.
The Celtics also have plenty of room for improvement. Boston's bench was mostly a non-factor in the series opener as Brooklyn's reserves earned a 30-17 advantage in scoring. The Celtics also can improve defensively. They allowed the Nets to shoot 53.8 percent from the field and 45.8 percent from 3-point range. It's hard to win games when the opponent shoots that well from the floor, but the Celtics still found a way Sunday.
Will they take a 2-0 series lead, or will the Nets tie the series and steal homecourt advantage?
