Last night, the Brooklyn Nets faced the Boston Celtics in a St. Patrick’s Day matchup. After an exciting win against the Knicks on Thursday, the Nets were trying to notch their second straight win for the first time all season. Boston played without Isaiah Thomas, the heart and soul of the team. Whether he’s an MVP candidate or not, that’s up to you. That left Jeremy Lin to face Marcus Smart, a less offensively talented, but far tougher defender.
