kevin durant - 29.9 PTS, 6.4 AST, 38% 3p, 6.9 RBD.

Boston has a dynamic #1 defense with the least points given away in the league. They block, make shots tough, and get the rebound.

Jayson Tatum- 26.9 PTS, 4.4 AST,1.1 STL, 1.0 STL. T
atum's defense has been hot this year with a +12.1 +/-, taking the Celtics on a late playoff run.

2. 3P Accuracy
Harris is out for the season
Joe Harris- Ankle
robert williams - knee
Williams won't be back until May.
Can Seth Curry give the Nets the burst they need to get ahead and force Boston to shoot threes? Marcus Smart is having a DPOY year, so its likely the Nets will get frustrated and over-rely on Durant.
