Boston Celtics is predicted to their upcoming playoff game against Brooklyn Nets as per the latest Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets Prediction and NBA Odds

The playoff battle is expected to become more intense when the Boston Celtics take on the Brooklyn Nets in the Round 1 at their home arena of the TD Garden on the super Sunday.

The Celtics have been fantastic this season as they clinched the Atlantic Division. They faced a crushing loss to the Grizzlies in the regular-season finale but that should not have taken away their momentum. Al Horford spoke about the team’s mindset regarding the playoffs after the last game. He said:

“It’s exciting. I don’t know in mid-January if this is a possibility. We would have settled for like 6 or 5. To be in this position is a testament to our group.”

The Brooklyn Nets will be heading to Boston with confidence after claiming the 7th seed in Eastern Conference with a victory over the Clevland Cavaliers in the Play-In. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving shone once again as they added 59 points and 23 assists together. The team’s head coach Steve Nash spoke about his side that managed to reach the playoffs after suffering from a lot of injuries throughout the season. Nash said:

“We’re just such a new group. I think that was, like, the seventh game those nine players tonight have played together. So every day is a day for us to learn about ourselves.”

The Celtics have faced a major setback by the injury of their key player, Robert Williams III. The chance of his comeback in the next game seems low. The Nets will be hoping for the fitness of Ben Simmons before the next important clash.
