Brooklyn lost to Boston again.
The Brooklyn Nets lost 96-139 in a game against the Boston Celtics in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at Boston TD Garden on the 2nd (Korean time).
Brooklyn suffered a 0-4 sweep loss to Boston in Game 1 of the playoffs last season. Including this record, Brooklyn was on a 9-game losing streak against Boston.
Brooklyn players entered the game dreaming of ending their natural enemy relationship. But Brooklyn’s dream was shattered as soon as the game started.
Brooklyn could hardly break through Boston’s strong defense. In the process, Brooklyn exposed loopholes in defense, allowing Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown 30 points only in the first quarter. The first quarter score was 16-46. In fact, it was the moment when the game was over.
The sluggish performance of Kyrie Irving, who replaced Kevin Durant as the first option, was also regrettable. Irving played 31 minutes and 1 second that day and recorded the most points on the team with 20 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. However, he only hit 1 of 7 3-pointers. He also scored only one free throw.
As a result, Brooklyn lost 10 straight games to Boston. Irving expressed his disappointment in a post-match interview. 메이저사이트
“Boston is a team that wants to win the Finals,” Irving said. I think they can pull it off, but they didn’t do it tonight. It’s understandably disappointing.”
But Irving did not give up. He is looking to a better future.
Irving said, “I want to win both home and away against Boston. As one of the team’s leaders, I will try to prepare well and set an example.”
Boston is running for first place in the Eastern Conference as of the 2nd. For Brooklyn, who dreams of winning the finals beyond the Eastern Conference, Boston is an opponent that must be overcome. Can Irving overcome Boston and prove his leadership qualifications? Their next match will be at TD Garden on March 4th.
