Research Notes

  • Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett combined for 25 points against the Celtics. Including Brook Lopez who is now out for the season, The Nets had a star studded starting five on paper entering the season, but none of those players even finished in the top 5 on the team in scoring tonight against the Celtics.

  • Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce combined for 12 points in their first game back in Boston since joining the Nets. In 384 games when both were in the lineup with the Celtics, they never combined for fewer than 15 points.

  • Paul Pierce returns to Boston having scored 24,021 career points with the Celtics. That's nearly twice as many points as Boston's current roster has scored in a Celtics uniform combined (12,738).Rajon Rondo is the leader in that category with 5,271, more than double anybody else on the roster.
