Here we Go! The NBA Regular season starts for the Brooklyn Nets. first stop, TD Garden as the Nets look to break the opening night losing streak against the Celtics. 7:30 PM ET
on NBA League pass, YES NEtwork.

Nets went 1-5 in the pre-season, but with a new coach and a major roster overhaul pre-season losses were expected. The nets now look to start a new leaf now with Jeremy Lin at the helm who avg'd 17ppg in 5 games shooting a blistering 62% from the field and 50% from 3 pointers.

Nets and celtics both finished their pre-seasons with Losses to the knicks. and the Celtics have won the 2 pre-season matches thus far.
will the nets be able to come together and pull the upset, or will they follow "expert"predictions and fall?

There's a very good chance referee Marc Davis will not call any fouls for Lin tonight (especially if he's fouled by a black player). That's my prediction. I always watch the refs very closely.

hopefully, it might be better this year, since there's more eyeballs watching this year.

updated injury list

Randy Foye (mild strain, right hamstring) and Caris LeVert (left foot rehab) are out for the Nets on Wednesday.
Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) and Marcus Smart (ankle) are out for the Celtics.

Nets still have not announced a starter to replace Foye as starter. could be Bojan Bogdanovic, sean kilpatrick or Joe Harris.

Lin didn't play that well though. Hope he gets better.

The black ref did his job today. i give him an A+.


But this motion offense the Nets are running is taking the ball out of Lins hands and getting the players tired.
