Boston held strong at home and is up 2-0 ahead of the third game of this series. Jayson Tatum was immortalized with his last-second buzzer-beater in Game 1 to help the Celtics draw first blood in the series. Through two games, he is averaging 25.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 9.0 assists. Teammate Jaylen Brown has been a strong supporter, averaging 22.5 points while center Al Horford is averaging a double-double with 18.0 points and 10.5 rebounds a game. The Celtics are also getting key defensive star Robert Williams back in a limited capacity.

Brooklyn has two losses despite the stellar play of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Irving is averaging 24.5 points, 3.5 assists and 6.5 rebounds per game. Durant has similar stats with 25.0 points, 4.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds through two games. The Nets are in desperate need of Andre Drummond to step up his play because averaging 6.5 points and four rebounds in 20.5 minutes per game aren’t going to make an impact against Boston’s interior defenders.
