The last time the Celtics played the worst team in the NBA, they were tied at halftime and barely escaped New Jersey with a victory.
Last night, things went the way they’re supposed to when a juggernaut meets a minnow.
Boston finished a frenetic first half with a 71-35 lead, and rolled to a 111-87 win over the Nets.

New Jersey (3-35) lost its first 18 games of the season, and is now riding a six-game skid. There’s a decent shot they’ll challenge the 1972-73 Sixers for the worst-ever winning percentage.
The C’s (27-10) showed why last night. After jumping to a big early lead, the Boston players seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Tony Allen made what might have been the play of the season, catching a Paul Pierce alley-oop with one hand and slamming it home.
