How to watch Nets vs. Celtics basketball game

Through 3 Quarters

The Boston Celtics were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. After three quarters it’s looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Brooklyn Nets as Boston lead 99-74.

The top scorer for the Celtics has been small forward Jayson Tatum (23 points). One thing to keep an eye out for is Robert Williams III’s foul situation as he currently sits at four.

Brooklyn has enjoyed the tag-team combination of small forward Bruce Brown and shooting guard Seth Curry. The former has 14 points and four assists along with seven rebounds, while the latter has 17 points in addition to six boards.

Halftime deficits have spelled doom for Brooklyn, who have lost 76% of the games in which they were down going into the the fourth quarter.

What to Know

After a few days’ rest for both teams, the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics will meet up at 7: 30 p.m. ET Feb. 24 at Barclays Center. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, Brooklyn now face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.

The contest between the Nets and the Washington Wizards last Thursday was not a total blowout, but with Brooklyn falling 117-103 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. Brooklyn’s defeat came about despite a quality game from point guard Patty Mills, who shot 5-for-7 from downtown and finished with 22 points.

Meanwhile, Boston was just a bucket short of a victory last week and fell 112-111 to the Detroit Pistons. This was hardly the result Boston or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 12.5 points over Detroit heading into this game. The Celtics’ loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of shooting guard Jaylen Brown, who had 31 points and six assists, and power forward Al Horford, who had 19 points and seven assists in addition to seven boards.

Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a win. The teams are out to make things right after dropping matches they were expected to win, so stay tuned to see which team bounces back.
