Celtics-Nets preview

 

Tonight, the 10-12 Boston Celtics face the 6-14 Brooklyn Nets.  This is the first game against Boston's former stars.  It was just announced that Paul Pierce will come off the bench to play against his former team after sitting out 4 games due to a broken hand. The Truth, who has been criticized for "losing his passion", which I think is ridiculous. KG will play against the Green and will probably see about 20-25 minutes.

Boston is fresh off a 41 point win over the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.  The Nets are also coming of a win against Milwaukee. Brooklyn is 6-14 and sitting in 3rd place in the Atlantic Division. They have been called the laughingstock of the NBA, while the Celtics are 10-12 and in first place.

Look out for Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace in their return to play their former team.  I'm expecting another 20+ game from Jordan Crawford in a 15 point win in Brooklyn.
