Celtics Rout Nets 36-33?

In what seems like a charity football game score, the Boston Celtics defeated the New Jersey Nets 36-33 in a half of basketball at Worcester, Massachusetts. Ok, not really, the game was canceled after just a half. The game was called at the DCU Center due to "court conditions". The arena is traditionally used for minor league hockey games and dampness was seeping through up onto the court.

Smartly, Vince Carter, Richard Jefferson and Jason Kidd were all listed as "DNP" (Did Not Play) for the game, preventing possible injuries. Boston Nachbar lead the way for the Nets, scoring 10 points, almost 1/3 of his team's total.

For the Celtics, the big three combined for 17 points (Ray Allen had 7, Garnett 6 and Pierce 4). The exhibition game lasted for just one hour.

The Celtics take on the Philadelphia 76ers in a preseason contest Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun arena in Uncasville, CT.
