The Boston Celtics will host the Brooklyn Nets at the Garden tonight.
Both the teams are in a great form lately and it will a great matchup tonight.
The Celtics will be looking to jump back after the loss at the hands of the Golden State Warriors.
Kyrie Irving has been in quite a form this season and finished with 32 points and ten assists against the Warriors. He will be the player to watch out for tonight.
Jayson Tatum had 20 points in the game, out of which 14 were in the third quarter, whereas Morris finished with just nine points for the game. These both need to stand up for the team, especially during the crunch situations when there is a lot of pressure on Irving.
The Celtics lost the Nets on the 14th of this month and will be looking to take the revenge tonight.
Last time Nets lost to a team was on the 11th of this month. They have won six straight games after that and will be looking to upset the Celtics again tonight to grab their seventh straight.
The Nets beat the New York Knicks in the last game with four of their bench players scoring in double figures. Theo Pinson was the leading scorer with 19 points and eight rebounds. He was well assisted by Ed Davis and Shabazz Napier, who finished with 17 and 18 points respectively.
And how can we forget their leading man, D’Angelo Russell? He will be a significant factor in the game tonight.
The Nets will be willing to produce another an all-around performance tonight.
The Nets have beaten a lot of good teams lately and can’t be taken as a weak opponent. They have been on the run and are not going down without fighting tonight.
The Celtics on the other hand, need whole of their team to stand up beside Irving and support him. If that happens soon, they will become one of the top contenders this season. Also, they have the home crowd advantage tonight.
I am giving it to the Boston Celtics tonight.
