The Boston Celtics play the New Jersey Nets at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on Friday, April 14th, 2006. The game will be at 7:30 PM EST and will be televised

The New Jersey Nets'
last game was against the Philadelphia 76ers
, L, 96-116 (boxscore).
The Boston Celtics'
last game was against the Indiana Pacers
, L, 112-117 (boxscore).

The New Jesey Nets have assembled one of the best Eastern Conference teams in the league. Their "big three" of Vince Carter, Richard Jefferson, and of course, Jason Kidd gives the Nets one of the best starting lineups in the league. While their big man crew isn't quite as good, they can score (Nenad Krstic's face-up game) and defend (Jason Collin's post defense). In my opinion, the bench of the Nets isn't quite what was expected from the team in the off-season. I feel the Celtics, in order to win this game, will need to out-rebound, out-hustle, and overally out-play the superior New Jersey team. The key factors will be the defense of Vince Carter and bench scoring. I'm expecting a loss but since Oden can't enter this draft, I'm hoping for a win. ;)

The New Jersey Nets and the Boston Celtics are both 2-3 in their last five games with each team winning their last game. The Nets are 19-20 away from New Jersey and the Celtics are 20-18 in Boston at home. The Nets score 94.2 points per game and give up 92.7 points per game. The Celtics score 99 points per game and give up 100 points per game.

The Celtics were 1-3 against the Nets last season. This is the third of four meetings between the division "rivals" with the next game being Sunday in New Jersey.

At least you didn't put 'goddamit.'

But to the game...I think that PP will have a monster game along with GG. Why? Because I feel it. I just feel it, man.

(BTW, listen to Mitch Hedburg)

Pierce wont have a big game. He hardly tries anymore. I don't know how he has been breaking 20. I just hope Gerald has another one of his nights, and maybe Jones can get some time in.
The Jones we picked up in the Buckets Trade? Nah, I'd much rather see Kandi Man get some minutes.

we're catching NJ at a good time, they're playing like **** lately.
lol

If playing like crap = resting their starters because they are locked into the 3rd seed no matter what happens, then yeah they are playing like crap.

They'll still beat us easily.

I'm thinking y'all should tune in and check out the Red Sox game tonight and watch Schilling get his 3rd win of the season.
