Article Summary:

“First game, I thought we were good defensively. Second game, we weren’t as good. We need to get back to being a little more solid and a little bit better on that end. I thought we attacked a little big better in Game 2. Hopefully, we’ll be able to build off of that heading into Game 3,” Brad Stevens said after Thursday’s practice on the eve of the Celtics’ first home game in the series.

“I thought we did get some really good looks in Game 2, but it was one of those game where your backs are up against the wall and every shot takes on that much more significance, especially when they’re going like they were going earlier. We missed and we couldn’t keep up with them.”

Unfortunately, the Nets played better-infinitely better-on that side of the ball, too. After making just 13-of-24 at the rim in Game 1, the Nets made 21-of-34 in Game 2, including a handful of age-defying dunks by Blake Griffin who went 6-for-6 deep in the paint.

“We’re down 2-0. Tomorrow is important. Tomorrow, the edge, the pride, the competitiveness needs to be at its best level. I feel good about things we’ve done in each of these games. Game 1 was more representative of how we have to play to be successful. We have to be much more physical. We have to be better defensively. Hopefully, we can attack better as these games go on. Edge, competitive level is a huge huge part of the weekend.”
