Game two of the NBA Playoffs between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets never had an obvious winner, with both teams constantly catching up to their trails. Each quarter had a different winner, it seemed.

Boston Celtics tied it up again at 92 early in the fourth on a leaner by Jaylen Brown and took their first lead of the game with 7:48 left on a jumper by Payton Pritchard, according to reports from Associated Press.
