By advancing for the 5th time in 6 years, the Celtics are now 14-4 in their last 18 1st round games. (All four losses coming to the Nets in 2021.)
Kyrie Irving had been 20-1 in last 21 first round games until going 0-4.

Ime Udoka was strongly against ducking the Nets. But he wanted to see if his players shared his view.
“We all came to the conclusion that, like, look, man, if we want to do something special, ain’t no shortcuts,” Jaylen Brown said.
Now, it’s a sweep.

More on this storyline

John Karalis: Asked about Jaylen Brown’s hamstring, Ime Udoka simply says “yeah, he’s good” -via Twitter @John_Karalis / April 27, 2022

While the Celtics took care of business and swept the Nets after another close game, Jaylen Brown said he had some “hamstring problems” going into the second half. Brown stayed on the floor, though, and helped the C’s close out the Nets in a 116-112 victory Monday at Barclays Center. “I’m alright,” Brown told NBC Sports Boston after the game. “I think I’m alright. I’m going to go get checked out and I think I’ll be fine for the next one.” -via Booth Newspapers / April 26, 2022

Anthony Chiang: As expected, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are both available tonight for Celtics vs. Heat. -via Twitter @Anthony_Chiang / March 30, 2022
