BOSTON -- Jared Sullinger was at a loss to explain how his Boston Celtics could win while committing a season-high 28 turnovers. UGG Boots Black Friday UK Sale . "I honestly dont know," he said. Try this: 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds by Rajon Rondo, a 62-37 rebounding advantage by the Celtics and a horrible 4-for-30 shooting performance on 3-pointers by the Nets. The result was a 91-84 victory in which Brooklyn never led and had its four-game winning streak stopped Friday night. The rebounding "was obviously the difference in the game for us, from our standpoint. That, and they missed the 3s," Boston coach Brad Stevens said. "Id like to say that it was this outstanding 3-point defence, but I think when you re-watch it, its a lot of open 3s they missed." The Celtics scored the first five points and won for just the second time in nine games. And they held off Brooklyn after an 11-point run cut the lead to 70-68 with 2:02 left in the third quarter. The Celtics came back to take a 78-70 lead entering the final quarter and led by at least seven points the rest of the way. "We shared the ball pretty well with our team, and theirs," Stevens said after watching the Celtics commit twice as many turnovers as Brooklyn, "so, overall, it was at least a step in the right direction." The Nets were led by Joe Johnson with 21 points and Deron Williams with 20 as they fell back to .500 two days after going over the mark for the first time this season. The Celtics (21-41) were coming off a very poor performance in a 108-88 loss to Golden State on Wednesday night. "We need to keep working, keep grinding and understand we cant take anyone lightly," Nets coach Jason Kidd said. Jason Collins, the NBAs first openly gay player, did not play for the Nets for the first time in seven games since signing a 10-day contract Feb. 23. Collins, who played for the Celtics last season, signed a second 10-day contract Wednesday. The Celtics got 15 points from Jeff Green and 14 from Jerryd Bayless. Sullinger led all rebounders with 12. But Rondo was the key, despite his seven turnovers. Rondo missed the first 40 games recovering from off-season knee surgery and has shown an improved shooting touch recently. He hit three of six 3-pointers Friday. "He did a tremendous job coming into the season working on his jumper constantly," Sullinger said. "Now hes starting to become the Rondo we all know every day." Paul Pierce scored 10 points in his second appearance in Boston since the blockbuster trade that sent him and Kevin Garnett to the Nets in the off-season. Pierce spent 15 seasons with the Celtics after they drafted him with the 10th pick in 1998. He received light applause when he was introduced with the other Nets starters. Garnett missed his fourth straight game with back spasms. "Every time I come into this gym, its going to be emotion. Not like last time, though," Pierce said. "We just didnt have any rhythm on offence or defence." Pierce and Garnett each scored six points in their first game in Boston this season, an 85-79 Brooklyn win Jan. 26. Both were emotional during and after video tributes on the video screen above centre court. On Friday, the Celtics led 53-41 at halftime -- after the Nets missed all 17 of their 3-pointers -- and 70-57 with four minutes left in the third quarter. Brooklyn scored the next 11 points with Shaun Livingston starting the spurt with two free throws and Andray Blatche following with a 3-pointer. Andrei Kirilenko made a three-point play, Marcus Thornton sank a layup and Johnson hit a free throw. Green ended the run with a three-point play, the Celtics led 78-70 entering the fourth quarter and stayed ahead by at least seven the rest of the way. Despite all those turnovers. "I remember Bobby Knight on ESPN said the team that had the most turnovers is going to lose," Sullinger said. "I guess we exceeded that expectation." NOTES: Celtics C Vitor Faverani will miss the rest of the season after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair a torn lateral meniscus on Friday. ... Pierce made four of 11 shots and is 6-for-24 with 20 points in three games against his former team.

The fourth-year guard from Carleton University kicked off his varsity career with rookie of the year honours in 2011, before racking up three straight Mike Moser Memorial Trophies for outstanding player. "Phil has been the guy we have gone through for four years and without him, there could never have been the success that we have had," said Ravens head coach Dave Smart. "He is an extremely talented player who is a full team guy over everything else." The 21-year-old from Richmond, B.C., was one of three Ravens to win national awards. His older brother Thomas, a fourth-year forward, was named the top defensive player in the CIS, while Smart added to his collection of Stuart W. Aberdeen Memorial Trophies, claiming his fourth consecutive coach of the year award and seventh overall. University of New Brunswick guard Javon Masters won the Dr. Peter Mullins Trophy as rookie of the year, while Saint Marys forward Harry Ezenibe won the Ken Shields Award for excellence in basketball, academics and community involvement. The awards were presented in advance of the CIS mens championship that opens Friday in Ottawa. Scrubb was the most consistent player on the top-ranked Ravens, leading Carleton in scoring (18.6 points a game) and assists (4.9). The six-foot-three guard was ranked third in the CIS in assist-to-turnover ratio, fifth in three-point shooting and eighth in free-throw percentage. Scrubb led Carleton to a perfect 22-0 in conference action for the third time in four years. The commerce student helped the Ravens to the CIS title in each of his first three seasons. He was the only active CIS player invited to Canadas senior national team camp last summer. Scrubb was a member of the national team for both the 2013 Summer Universiade and the 2011 Pan American Games. The other finalists for the Moser Trophy were Acadia forward Owen Klassen, McGill guard Vincent Dufort and Alberta forward Jordan Baker. Thomas Scrubb earned defensive MVP honours for the first time after claiming the conference defensive award for the second consecutive season. The six-foot-six forward was once again the anchor of a defensive unit that finished first in the OUA and second in the CIS for fewest points allowed (62.2 per game). The neuroscience student averaged 8.4 rebounds a game on the defensive end, and chipped in on offence with 13.2 points a night. "Tommy has been asked to cover the best player on the other team every game regardless of position for two years," said Smart. "He has deferred other offensive aspects of his game to do that. If not for him I have no idea how we would stop anyone. He doesnt defend one position, he defends four positions, very few can do that.&quoot; Acadia forward Owen Klassen, Concordia forward Zach Brisebois and Victoria guard Reiner Theil were the other finalists for defensive MVP. 2015 UGG Boots Black Friday UK. Masters, a native of Kitchener, Ont., is the first UNB player to win the Dr. Peter Mullins Trophy. The six-foot guard claimed the national scoring title with 27.4 points a game, and topped the Atlantic conference in three-point shooting percentage (42.4). His 215 free throws made, the highest total in CIS this year, are a new season mark for the league. The 19-year-old helped the Varsity Reds finish with a .500 record (10-10) for the first time since 2003-04. "(Masters) has made a major impact on our program and will continue to do so as he progresses through his career at UNB," said coach Brent Baker. "Leading the country in scoring as a freshman is a rare and special accomplishment." McGill guard Dele Ogundokun, Brock forward Dani Elgadi and Alberta forward Mamadou Gueye were the other nominees. Smart now has seven CIS coach-of-the-year awards in only 15 seasons, three more than legendary coaches Ken Shields and Bruce Enns. His four consecutive national awards are also two more than any other coach in history. This season, he led the Ravens to an undefeated conference record for the third time in four years and the sixth time overall. He improved his all-time record in league play to 303-23 (.929), with nine of those losses coming in his first year as head coach. "Dave has done a remarkable job with our mens basketball program," said Carleton athletic director Jennifer Frenning. "Not only has he recruited and developed top student-athletes, he has instilled positive values and a strong work ethic which will make them successful well past graduation." The other finalists were Acadias Stephen Baur, McGills David DeAveiro and Victorias Craig Beaucamp. Ezenibe, a native of Nigeria, became the first Saint Marys student-athlete to win the Ken Shields Award. On the court, the six-foot-four forward averaged 9.0 points a game in his fifth season. In the classroom, the two-time academic all-Canadian is completing a double major in sociology and criminology and maintains a 3.6 grade point average. Ezenibe spends his free time volunteering with youth in the community and hopes to establish a project to help children in Nigeria. In November, he was invited by Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri to speak at the opening of the Giants of Africa foundation. "Harry is completely selfless," said Huskies head coach Jonah Taussig. "He is always looking out for the greater good whether it be with his teammates or the youth he works with in the community. He is always looking to make a positive difference in the lives of the people around him." Bishops Scott Ring, Carletons Kevin Churchill and Fraser Valleys Jasper Moedt were also nominated. wholesale stitched jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china ' ' '
