ANALYSIS: Tatum was accidentally poked in the eye by Kevin Durant in Game 2 of the Boston Celtics' first round series vs. Brooklyn, and left the game early in the third quarter. 

"He went back out on the court [and] tried to readjust to the light out there, and he was really struggling," Brad Stevens said after the game. "He got scratched pretty good. It looks pretty red, it looks pretty swollen to me."

The Nets beat the Celtics 130-108 on Tuesday to take a 2-0 series lead. Now the series heads to Boston for Game 3, which is scheduled for Friday at 8:30 p.m. ET.
