How the Game was Won: Celtics vs. Nets
The Boston Celtics went into Brooklyn and defeated the Nets on Christmas morning, 93-76. Boston's 34 second-quarter points, highlighted by a 17-2 run, gave them a lead they would never surrender. More impressive, however, was the excellent play of reserve forward Jared Sullinger.
