Brooklyn Nets vs Boston Celtics 4/20/2022 Betting Odds
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets almost had Game 1 at the palm of their hands but luck did not fall on them. Leading the team was former Celtic Kyrie Irving tallying 39 points. He also had six three-pointers, six rebounds, five rebounds, four steals and went perfect from the free-throw line. Struggling shooting from the field was Kevin Durant who only shot 38% from the field but was able to finish with 23 points. Coming off the bench to provide help was veteran guard Goran Dragic with 14 points while Nic Claxton chipped in with 14 points and eight boards. The team needs more from Andre Drummond and Seth Curry to get ahead in Game 2.

The Boston Celtics certainly had the leprechaun running around the venue and guided Jayson Tatum to that game-winning tip-in to secure Game 1. He finished the game with 31 points, eight assists, four rebounds, three triples and two blocks while Jaylen Brown contributed 23 points. Not so far behind was veteran forward Al Horford with 20 points and 15 rebounds while newly crowned defensive player of the year Marcus Smart did 20 points, seven rebounds, six assists and four three-pointers. The Celtics had a very small rotation for this game activating only eight players step on the court.
