NBA Twitter reacts to Nets’ terrible fourth quarter in Recreation 2 loss

The Brooklyn Nets held a 17-point lead on the road at TD Garden less than two minutes before halftime, but the Boston Celtics stormed back and dominated Brooklyn in the fourth quarter to take a commanding 2-0 series lead.

After his explosive Game 1 performance, Kyrie Irving was held to just 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting in 40 minutes, and Kevin Durant had another rough night from the field, shooting 4-of-17 against the league’s top-ranked defense .

Brooklyn held a five-point lead to start the fourth, but simply couldn’t score for the majority of the quarter, generating just six points in the first 10:07 of the period. Durant failed to score a point in the fourth until he converted at the free-throw line with 1:53 remaining, but by then the game was out of reach.

The series will resume on Saturday at the Barclays Center, with the Nets facing a must-win scenario. Here’s what fans and analysts had to say about Game 2:
