Kevin Garnett is one of only six players returning from last season for the Boston Celtics.
This was the second consecutive disappointing defensive performance for Boston, who surrendered 120 to Miami on Tuesday. Last year the C's had one of the league's top defenses, allowing just 89.3 points per game.
Around the Eastern Conference, the New York Knicks knocked off the Miami Heat, 104-84. Carmelo Anthony led the way with 30 points and 10 rebounds. New York drained 19 three-pointers, shooting 53 percent from beyond the arc.
