Celtics vs Nets START TIME, CHANNEL
The Celtics vs Nets live stream begins tonight Saturday, May 22nd at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT. It will air on ABC and ESPN3.
The Celtics vs Nets live stream is starting now, and it marks just the eighth time Brooklyn’s Big Three of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden are suiting up since forming the NBA’s latest super team. Boston fans will hope it takes the Nets a while to establish chemistry during this NBA playoffs live stream.
On paper, the Nets enter the playoffs as the East’s 2nd-seed, but most NBA pundits have them as the team to beat in their conference. Everything is based on the potential of the amazing roster they’ve assembled including the three stars who have amassed a total of 28 all-star appearances, two MVPs and three championships.
If Brooklyn stays healthy and establishes chemistry quickly, which is to be expected with the talent they have throughout their roster, they will likely prove the pundits right.
Not that the Nets needed anymore confidence, but they will look to carry their regular season success against Boston into the playoffs. Brooklyn won all three of their match-ups against the Celtics this year.
If another team knows about injury woes, it’s Boston. They just lost their second leading scorer earlier this month. Jaylen Brown suffered wrist injury that required surgery while he was in the midst of his best season. Brown was averaging 24.7 points a game in his fifth NBA season. Boston still has their all-star Jayson Tatum and he is coming off a dominant performance in their play-in tournament game against the Wizards. Tatum netted 50 points against Washington marking his third 50-point performance in the last two months.
The Nets are 7.5 points favorites in game one. The over/under is 227.
