Brooklyn Nets (32-35) vs Boston Celtics (44-23) is the last match for today. Here we look at the Match Preview and TV Schedule for the game.
Day 7 of the bubble restart in Florida will see 12 teams in action. In the final match today No. 3 seed Celtics will take on No. 7 seed Brooklyn Nets in an Eastern Conference contest.
Caris LeVert delivered his best career performance of 51 points against Boston Celtics on March 3 before the season suspension. LeVert will try to repeat the performance once again in front of virtual fans as Nets can go 1.5 games clear of the Magic (No.8 seed team in the east) if they come out victorious.
Celtics (1-2) on the other hand will hope to gain some winning momentum as their season restart has been disappointing. The greens have only one win with two defeats in the season restart. The side lost its previous game against Heat (106-112).
Jayson Tatum. the Celtics talisman has been a little hot and cold inside the NBA Bubble and Celtics would desperately hope he gets back to his best. Kemba Walker is returning from an injury and things could get tricky for the Celtics during the playoffs.

📊 Going for three straight in Orlando tonight vs. the Celtics 📊

Nets vs Celtics Preview
LeVert was rested in the previous match due to left thigh contusion. Joe Harris was out because of lower back and Jarrett Allen was rested against Bucks. The trio should return for tonight’s game and will pose a threat to the already weary looking Celtics.
Celtics will have to watch out for the trio as they scored 83 points in a 118-110 victory against Wizards in the second match. Nets’ forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot was also impressive against Bucks as he scored 26 points.
Celtics are playing decently well, but they haven’t really set the ground running. They will look to win this game as it will give them 2.5 games cushion over No.4 seed team Heat (43-25). Celtics is on 3rd spot with 44-23.
Nets (2-1) are likely to win the game as they are fighting for the seventh seed in the east and will go all out. If they do, they will have 3 wins in 3, something that not a lot of people would have expected out of them, especially in the absence of KD, Kyrie and Dinwiddie.
With their trio in and Celtics plan to rest Kemba Walker they might upset Celtics as they were able to do Bucks. Milwaukee also rested Gannis and Khris Middleton after the 2nd quarter on which Nets capitalized and came out with an unprecedented win.
