Nets’ Caris LeVert scores career-high 51 points in win vs. Celtics


To say Brooklyn Nets small forward Caris LeVert was a man possessed on Tuesday against the Boston Celtics would be an understatement.

LeVert not only finished with a career-high 51 points, but he scored 26 of those in the fourth quarter and all 11 of the Nets’ points in overtime to lead Brooklyn to a great win over the Celtics in Boston:

LeVert played 36 minutes and shot 17-of-26 from the field, 5-of-10 from beyond the arc and 12-of-18 from the free-throw line.

The Nets improved to 27-33 on the season with the win. This is the type of performance the Nets are going to need from LeVert from time to time if they want to possibly win a playoff series this season without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

LeVert entered Tuesday averaging 16.3 points. When he wakes up on Wednesday, his points per game average will be at 17.3.
