Recap: Boston vs. Brooklyn

Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Mirza Teletovis sank a tie-breaking free throw with 4.1 seconds left to lift the Brooklyn Nets to a 97-96 preseason victory over the Boston Celtics at TD Garden.

Brooklyn's Stephen Dennis missed a pair of foul shots with the score knotted at 96-96, but Teletovis came down with the rebound and was fouled by Rob Kurz. He made the first and missed the second, but Boston couldn't connect on two attempts to move back ahead in the final seconds.

Teletovis finished with 18 points and Andray Blatche scored 23 with nine rebounds for the Nets, who rallied back from a 10-point deficit with under four minutes left to move to 3-0 in the preseason.

Paul Pierce poured in 29 points and drained 6-of-8 three-point shots for Boston, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Celtics from falling to 1-4 in exhibition play. Jeff Green netted 14 points in defeat.
