Correction: Celtics-Nets story
NEW YORK (AP) -- In a March 22 story about the Brooklyn Nets' victory over Boston, The Associated Press mischaracterized the alternate jersey the Nets debuted. It is gray, not gay.

Johnson leads Nets to 114-98 win over Celtics
Johnson scores 27 points to lead Nets over Celtics 114-98 for 11th straight home win
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Nets are hoping their hot play will carry over when they hit the road.
Joe Johnson hit six 3-pointers in his 27 points, Mason Plumlee added 18 points, and Brooklyn won its 11th straight at home, beating the Boston Celtics 114-98 on Friday night.
After going 12-11 at home to begin the season, Brooklyn's confidence remained high after concluding its three-game home stand. The Nets have been unstoppable on The Barclays Center's herringbone-patterned court since beating Philadelphia on Feb. 3
"We've been playing pretty good at home as a team," said Johnson, who was 10 of 16 from the floor and 6 of 8 beyond the arc. "We got great ball movement offensively.
"Guys really getting interior defense and making plays defensively. We're gang rebounding and just helping each other. It's been beautiful to watch and it's been beautiful to be a part of."
The Nets will try to maintain that momentum during the next five days on the road, where they are 13-20 on the season. They will open up a three-game trip at Dallas on Sunday and continue at New Orleans on Monday night before wrapping up Tuesday at Charlotte.
Former Celtic Paul Pierce had 14 points, and Andray Blatche and Jorge Gutierrez added 10 apiece for the Nets, who won their third straight game and ninth in the last 10 to move within 1
