The Brooklyn Nets travel to the TD Garden to take on the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. Here’s a Nets vs Celtics Prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been in a rut as they've lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting beaten by the Celtics in a 118-110 loss last night. Mikal Bridges led the team with 27 points on 10 of 20 shooting, Cam Thomas added 26 points while Lonnie Walker chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Nets shot 49 percent from the field and 15 of 33 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace right from the start, falling behind by double digits right away, before they went on a late rally in the fourth quarter to make things somewhat interesting at the end. The Nets will take on the Raptors after this one.

Boston Celtics

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics have been on a tear as they've won 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be gunning for a sixth straight victory after outlasting the Nets in a 118-110 road win last night. Jayson Tatum led the team with 41 points, 14 rebounds and five assists, Jaylen Brown added 19 points while Al Horford and Derrick White scored 16 points each. As a team, the Celtics shot 51 percent from the field and 15 of 37 from the 3-point line as they hit the ground running, pouring in 72 points in the first half to build a 23-point lead, before they took their foot off the gas in the fourth quarter to allow the Nets to bring the margin to single digits in the end. The Celtics will play against the Bulls after this game.

Nets vs Celtics Prediction

The Nets are still missing Cameron Johnson, while the Celtics have ruled out Jaden Springer and Kristaps Porzingis once again. It's always tough to beat the same team twice in two nights, but the Celtics are levels above the Nets at the moment, even with the injuries they have to deal with. Sure, the Nets are capable of making this a contest, but the Celtics have been so tough to beat at home all season and I think that trend continues here with the Celtics cruising in this one.
