Celtics vs. Nets: times, TV, how and where to watch NBA online
The Brooklyn Nets will host the Boston Celtics as they try to survive in Game 3 of the opening round of the NBA playoff series. Here’s how to watch.
The Brooklyn Nets are down 0-2 in the first round, and they will try to get in the game against the Boston Celtics when they face off at home in Game 3 of the NBA playoff series opening round.
Kevin Durant has taken responsibility for what happened in their Game 2 114-107 loss, saying that he has to find a way to get around the Celtics’ defense.

Multiple Boston players repeatedly targeted Durant, who was unable to get his usual game going. He was able to score 27 points, but 18 of those were from free throws. From the field, he was 4-for-17, and 0-for-10 in the second half the game.
Kyrie Irving says that the blame should be shared by everyone, and that the team should figure out how to help the 2014 NBA MVP play as he usually does. Irving also put up only 10 points in Game 2, as compared to his impressive 39 in Game 1.
One thing that could help the cause of the Nets down the line is the possible return of Ben Simmons, who has yet to make his debut with the team, and who has not played this entire season.
But if Brooklyn loses Game 3, Simmons’ comeback in Game 4 might end up being a case of too little, too late.
