An unexpectedly physical practice for the Boston Celtics prior to Wednesday's game at Brooklyn put them in just the right frame of mind to snap their losing skid with an 89-81 win over
An 8-0 finish in the second quarter by the Boston Celtics was enough to give their first lead of the game. And it came with 26.5 seconds to play in the half, which ended with Boston on top 40-39.
Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens plans to have Jameer Nelson (ankle) and James Young on the inactive list tonight.
To play with purpose.
Sounds like the title of Tony Robbins' next self-help book, huh?
BOSTON — For most of Friday's game against Brooklyn - OK, all but the final two seconds - Boston's Gerald Wallace was a spectator.
