During the tail end of his career, Jefferson's second season with the Cavaliers in 2016-17 once again put him on the winning side when the Cavs defeated the Celtics in five games to win the Eastern Conference title.

Brown, who started for the injured Marcus Smart, scored two of his 22 points on an emphatic tomahawk jam during the game's fourth quarter.

D'Angelo Russell fired 34 points with 7 assists and 5 rebounds as the Nets added to the woes of a Celtics team heavily favored to come out of the Eastern Conference as contenders for the championship.

Two of Russell's 3-pointers occurred in a 15-0 run in a span of 3:20 when the Nets built a 76-59 lead. Brooklyn finally secured the win in the final minute. Rookie Rodions Kurucs also scored 19 points. Brad Stevens went with a lineup of Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Brad Wanamaker, Daniel Theis and Guerschon Yabusele.

In February 2018, the government was defeated for the third-time running in the High Court ClientEarth over its air pollution plans.

So a group of fans enjoyed the rare chance to rub it in as the Nets were romping, with a fairly loud "Kyrie's Leaving!"

Irving says he was hurt Saturday in a loss at Orlando.

But it was nearly a premature celebration, as Boston charged all the way back to get within seven in the final minute.

Nets: Reserve G Shabazz Napier was sidelined by right hamstring tightness. Boston has yet to lose four in a row this season.
