The Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics typically have competitive games with the Nets winning two of three this season and the clubs splitting their four-game series last season.
Brooklyn arrives riding the high of being shorthanded and beating the best team in the NBA while the Celtics arrive also on the second game of a back-to-back having lost to the Heat.
Color me shocked by the Nets victory over the Bucks. Talk about a game where a powerhouse (Bucks) took a decimated team for granted. Going into that match with Milwaukee playing their full complement of talent I was expecting a point differential of over 20 points.
That the Nets did this without the services of Caris LeVert, Joe Harris or Jarret Allen is shocking. That just goes to prove what heart and effort can accomplish.
The Celtics now know they can’t afford to take this Nets squad for granted.
In the victory, six Nets scored in double figures led by Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot scoring 26 points. The other five double-figure contributors were Garrett Temple (19), Justin Anderson (11), Tyler Johnson (11), Chris Chiozza (10), and Rodions Kurucs (10).
Caris LeVert (thigh contusion) and Joe Harris (back) are questionable to play after missing the Bucks match.
The Boston Celtics blew a big advantage in their most recent loss. The Miami Heat were playing the second game of a back-to-back and had battled the Raptors in the previous match. Moreover, Jimmy Butler was out resting a sore ankle sustained in the physical Toronto match.
With the Heat chasing Boston, the Celtics needed to take care of business and put another game between them and Miami to secure that third seed. Instead, the Celtics failed to capitalize and now the Heat only trails them 1.5 games.
Boston trailed the entire match eventually losing 111-106.
Jayson Tatum was the leading Celtics scorer with 23 points. Jaylen Brown delivered a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds. Gordon Hayward (15), Kemba Walker (15) and Enes Kanter (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Given the back-to-back, Walker will not play in this match as the team is consciously tending to his wonky knee. Tremont Waters has missed all three seeding games in the concussion protocol program and remains questionable for Wednesday.

- Nets are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 vs. NBA Atlantic.
- Celtics are 35-15-4 ATS in their last 54 Wednesday games.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
The Celtics need to win this match to hold off the Heat and try to keep hope alive to catch the Raptors so expect another vintage Jayson Tatum performance.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics -8.5
Brad Stevens won’t be caught napping on an undermanned but inspired Nets crew.
