After two games it’s pretty clear that it’s going to be a major stretch for Boston to beat the Brooklyn Nets.
Brooklyn won Game 2 130-108 and the Nets held former Duke star Jayson Tatum to just nine points. But he took a groin injury in Game 1 and a finger to the eye in Game 2, both courtesy of Kevin Durant.
Fellow former Duke star Kyrie Irving only had 15 as the Nets got a nice game from former Virginia star Joe Harris, who hit seven three pointers and finished with 25.
In the other Brotherhood game Tuesday night, Luke Kennard and the Clippers went down 0-2 to the Mavericks, losing 127-121.
Kennard again didn’t get in the game.
On Wednesday, we’ll see Seth Curry and the 76ers take on the Washington Wizards; RJ Barrett and the Knicks will take on the Hawks without the injured Cam Reddish; and finally the Grizzlies, with Grayson Allen, Tyus Jones and Justise Winslow, challenge Quin Snyder’s Utah Jazz.
