And just like that, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are out of the playoffs. Dominating with defense and a tenacious offensive attack, the Celtics beat the Nets 116-112 in Game 4 to sweep Brooklyn in their first-round matchup. It's a shocking end for the Nets, who many believed to be a true championship contender. It may feel like forever ago but the Nets actually entered the season as preseason NBA title favorites. And in bowing out in four games, they became the first preseason title favorite to not win a single playoff game in at least 35 years. DAZN is the new home of NFL in Canada.
