Favors Breaks Out as Nets Beat Celtics

The Nets finished Summer League at 3-2 after a 86-68 victory over the Celtics in Orlando on Friday.

The Nets wound up with more balanced scoring as Terrence Williams (calf) played just five minutes and Damion James (wrist) sat out.  Their absence didn't prevent them from being named to first team, all-Summer League.

But it was Derrick Favors who stood out, scoring a game-high 23 points (17 in the first half) and grabbing 11 rebounds, while committing just four fouls and not turning the ball over once in 28 minutes.

Favors wowed those in attendance with post moves, monster dunks and jump shots. The Nets shot 49 percent from the field and outrebounded the Celtics 45-27.  Starting for James, Brandon Heath hit three of his five attempts from 3-point range and finished with 16 points and six assists.
