Celtics steal show from Kyrie Irving, Nets

The Celtics defeated the Nets in Game 1 at Summer. A Jayson Tatum game winner stole the show.

Marcus Smart, of course, made the play as he could very well have taken a last shot himself while surrounded by Nets defenders.

Instead, Smart … made the smart play (pardon the pun) and went to Celtics top player and MVP candidate Jayson Tatum. The All-Star Tatum combined a nifty spin with an easy lay-in to steal Game 1 from the nets when time ran out.

As great as Kyrie played on the track – and as much as he wanted to let the Boston fans know with a win on their parquet floor to start the series – the Cs go 1-0 in Game 2. Expect this to be one hell of a first round matchup.

Jayson Tatum game winner

Tatum’s game-winner will live on in Boston sports history for years to come, especially considering how great Irving was in the fourth quarter and almost single-handedly brought the Nets back from the dead. Brooklyn thought they had a win on their hands after Kevin Durant’s lucky baseline bucket and Irving’s ridiculous three-pointer with less than two minutes to go.

Unfortunately for the Nets, a Game 1 win was nowhere in sight. A long series develops. Should Brooklyn fall short, this one will sting even more.
