Game Notes
The Nets are playing in the second of back to back games, having played the Sixers on the road on Monday.  Kevin Garnett played 15 minutes in that game and so he may or may not play against his former team in this one.  Jason Kidd had said that he would hold KG out of back to back games but KG vocally rejected that idea, so who knows. 

Paul Pierce was not with the team in Philly because of personal reasons so he may or may not be back with the team for this one.  The Nets also have been dealing with several injuries that have somewhat depleted their depth. 

The Celtics are coming off a big win and have had a couple of days to rest and practice so hopefully they will come out strong and play with energy in this one. 

Once again, starting lineups are unknown.  Brad Stevens said that his rotations are settling somewhat and the last starting lineup did quite well, so we may see the same lineup of Crawford, Bradley, Green Bass and Sullinger.  But then again, maybe we won't. 

Keys to the Game

Play with Energy - take advantage of the Nets back to back
Rebound - The Nets have size and rebounders and the Celtics must put out extra energy to crash the boards
Don't Be Overly Unselfish - The Celtics have tended to be so unselfish that they pass up open shots. They need to take the shots when they are there
Defense - The Celtics' defense is coming along and they need to keep working hard on that end
Keep Building The Celtics need to take their success from their win over the Knicks and build on it

Is a back to back for the Nets so I don't know if KG will play.

I'm predicting KG, if he plays, has a large input.
Vitor goes off
Babb, if he gets minutes like he should, will play like he did against NYK.
Sully 7+ rebounds

thanks for the game thread flc. tp as usual for your great work.

another pre-season game, nothing at stake so stevens will play mad scientist with the combos once more.

i am interested to see if the celtics are going to try to develop an inside game. so far there have been too many jump shots for my liking.

goooooooooo celtics!! beat brooklyn to a pulp!  ;D

If KG plays I would love to see him and Sully go at it.

Should be an entertaining game to watch nonetheless tho.

I predict a poster from Jeff Green!!

Super stoked that the Bold Predictions have taken up root in the game threads even when I'm late to the party.

ANYWAY.

Bold Predictions

Paul Pierce turns the ball over on one end-of-the-quarter iso-Truth posession.

Kevin Garnett gives many daps at shootaround, then proceeds to set illegal picks on every trip down the court. BONUS: He plays for 12 minutes.

Phill Pressey breaks Deron Williams' ankles.

Brook Lopez and Jared Sullinger each finish with double-doubles and positive +/-.

Final Score.
86-95 Celtics.

Bold Predictions: these bold predictions become a thing on the game threads,  Bass leads the game rebounds, Lee catches fire and scores 25+ on something like 6-9 from the 3pt line, Green plays center 
Kobe is Swahili for tortoise. Look it up!

Go Celtics



Hummm......wonder if Green answers the call tonight.   ???

Want mucho El Hombre tonight !

The Nets boys ( Wallace and Hump)  might be seeking a little payback on their old team.
