A furious fourth-quarter comeback led the Boston Celtics to an 82-73 win over the Brooklyn Nets in Orlando Summer League play on Tuesday.

Former New Mexico State star Jonathan Gibson led the Celtics’ late charge, scoring 15 of his 17 points in the final 10-minute stanza to help Boston turn their 59-52 deficit after three into a nine-point victory. Second-year man E’Twaun Moore added 15 and five rebounds for Boston, while first-round pick Jared Sullinger had eight points and 12 boards, narrowly missing his second straight double-double.

Brooklyn was once again paced by Al Thornton, who had 16 points (despite shooting just 3-for-13 from the field) and eight rebounds in his 27 minutes. MarShon Brooks, who did not hit a field goal in Monday’s opener, scored 13 on 5-for-11 shooting, and Adam Morrison chipped with 10 points and 10 boards.

With the loss, the Nets dropped to 0-2 in the Orlando Summer League. Their next tilt comes Wednesday at 3 p.m. against Philadelphia (0-2), who will also be looking for their first OSL win after narrow losses to Indiana and Utah.
