The Celtics, however, had the last laugh as they secured a victory against the Nets to register a 13-4 record in the Eastern Conference. Their strong start to the season is only bettered in the Eastern Conference by the Bucks, who have a 15-3 record courtesy of Giannis Antetokounmpo's exploits and the Toronto Raptors, who are tied with the Celtics with a 13-4 record. The Nets' next game will see them once again face off against the Celtics, albeit at home at the Barclays Center on Thursday night (Friday morning 10:30 am IST).
