Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum is back in the starting lineup after missing four games with a sore left knee.
Tatum, who missed the first three games with what Celtics coach Brad Stevens called a “pneumonia,” played his first game since Feb. 6 against the Philadelphia 76ers with 16 points and six rebounds.
The Celtics had a season-high 31 turnovers.
Tabora is averaging 9.6 points on 50.6 percent shooting and 3.4 assists in the last three games.
The Nets won the season series for the second straight time in the season opener.
The teams play Sunday in New Jersey.
