    Down 3-nil in their NBA first-round play-off series, the Brooklyn Nets have ruled Ben Simmons out for game four against the visiting Boston Celtics


    Simmons was expected to make his season and team debut tomorrow after a lengthy ramp-up period while dealing with a back injury.

    But Simmons is experiencing back soreness and the Nets have agreed to play it safe and keep him out.

    No team in NBA history has ever returned from a 3-nil deficit to win a play-off series.
