Brandon Bass corner 3! Hugs for all!

Emily Austen

Jeff Green for 3!!! #Celtics take the lead 64-63

Emily Austen

It seems like whenever Marcus Smart turns the ball over... it's a guaranteed steal for him on the other end to make up for his mistake.

Abby Chin

In the immortal words of Taylor Swift -- Shake it off @Marcus Smart!! #CelticsTalk

Emily Austen

Brandon Bass gets fouled on the jumper and completes the 3-point play! The #Celtics are within two points!!

Jay King

Jeff Green highlight dunk alert.

Jay King

Shortened contest be damned, Sully on pace for a 20-20 game with 16 points and 13 boards. 8:14 left in third.

Jay King

Smart starts the second half instead of Olynyk. Green at the 4 in a really small lineup.

Steve Bulpett

Kevin Garnett is not even in the building today. He's been down with a stomach virus since returning from China.

Marc D'Amico

Jared Sullinger (11 points, 9 rebs) and Marcus Smart (10 points, 2 rebs) are playing well, but the Celtics trail the Nets 51-40 at halftime.

Emily Austen

The #Celtics trail the #Nets 51-40 after the first half.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs are down 51-40 at half. #Celtics: Smart 10 pts. Sullinger 11 pts, 9 rebounds. #Nets: Jack 15 pts. Williams 10 pts, 4 asts. #CelticsTalk

Jay King

So far, this has not been a beautiful game.

Coach Stevens yelling at Marcus Smart to pick up Jarrett Jack full court. Somehow Jack still hit bucket at the buzzer! 24-17 BRK #Celtics

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Celtics down 24-17, but one positive they can take from the first quarter? They have six turnovers which resulted in zero pts. #Celticstalk

Marc D'Amico

Our first 11-minute quarter is in the books. The Celtics trail the Nets 24-17. Avery Bradley leads the C's with four points and a steal.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs trails 24-17 after 1Q: #Celtics: Bradley 4 pts. Sully 3 pts, 2 reb. #Nets: Plumlee 6 pts. Williams, Jack: 4 pts each. #Celticstalk

Abby Chin

Marcus Smart needed that three after going oh-fer on Friday night. Coach Stevens says rookie is still learning to get to his spots.#Celtics

Jay King

Might not wanna let Mason Plumlee dunk whenever he so desires.

Abby Chin

Two quick fouls on Jared Sullinger. Coach Stevens letting him play through it. Sticking with preseason rotations. #CelticsTalk

Jay King

Celtics-Nets preseason! History in action! Eleven-minute quarters!

Jay King

Pregame notes: Stevens says he has a "good pulse" on rotation, starting lineup. Young still on the mend. And more. masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Ughh RT @SportsCenter: Colt McCoy comes in for Washington in place of Kirk Cousins. His first pass: 70-yard TD pass to Pierre Garcon!

Kristina Leahy

Why did I play him today?! RT @ESPNStatsInfo: Kirk Cousins now has 11 turnovers this season (2 today). That's the most in the NFL.

Marc D'Amico

4 fewer minutes of @Sean Grande and Max, but as always they'll make it work. Celtics-Nets live from Brooklyn at 3:00 on @985TheSportsHub.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Texted a player re: 44 minute games. "Us players, we'll be good. But are they going to cut those tix by 1/12th for fans? I don't think so."

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Celtics Brad Stevens told reporters that Gerald Wallace will be available. #Celticstalk

A. Sherrod Blakely

No James Young (hamstring) today for the #Celtics. He joins injured list that includes Rondo (hand) and Vitor Faverani (knee). #Celticstalk

Jay King

Stevens said he has a pretty good idea of who would start if everyone's healthy. My guess: Rondo, Bradley, Green, Sullinger, Olynyk.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Shared an article. Celtics-Nets preview: C's have to be a defensive team: fw.to/6BKzscN

Jay King

Stevens waxed poetically about Smart's ability to avoid screens. Called him the "ultimate physical talent" as a defender, too.

Marc D'Amico

B. Stevens on Marcus Smart: "He has ultimate physical talent. He's got physical strength. He's got great agility...He's really unscreenable"

Sean Grande

"I want to get crisper. I want to get better at what we do" - Brad Stevens on the last pre-season games. But it works for real life, too.

Marc D'Amico

As expected, Gerald Wallace is available for today's game, while James Young continues to be inactive due to a strained left hamstring.

Jay King

James Young out. Gerald Wallace should be available. Vitor still in Spain.

Kyle Draper

. @Brian Scalabrine & me on #Celtics PreGame Live 2:30 Should be entertaining since we don't agree on anything when it comes to bball #CelticsTalk

Kyle Draper

According to @BKN_NetsPR Kevin Garnett will not play today vs. #Celtics. He's been dealing with stomach virus. #CelticsTalk

Rich Levine

You know the weather's changing when Ed Hochuli takes the field in long sleeves. Damn you, Buffalo.

Jay King

Kevin Garnett will not play today.

Kyle Draper

#CelticsTalk MT @CharlieWilson21: @CSNNE @A. Sherrod Blakely it bothers me people think Mason Plumlee is better than Kelly. Stats don't lie

Kyle Draper

Today on #Celtics PreGame Live me & @A. Sherrod Blakely debate who would you rather have at C, Olynyk or Mason Plumlee? #CelticsTalk #JumpBall

Of course, with the 44 minute game will be a .08% reduction in all ticket prices....to be fair.

Jay King

Practice notes: Stevens again questions part of 44-min game, seems unsure of Bynum's future. Plus more. masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Good math ;) Do you know how much that adds up over 82 games, though? RT "@JazzyJeff03: @Emily Austen 4 minutes?"

Jay King

Gerald Wallace is available to play tomorrow. Stevens thinks Young is "most likely not playing."

Steve Bulpett

James Young (hamstring) will try to play tomorrow in Brooklyn, but hopes to at least play in the last preseason game Wednesday.

Jay King

James Young (hamstring) did some conditioning work and shooting at practice today. Hopes to play tomorrow but still needs clearance.

Marc D'Amico

Marcus Thornton on tomorrow's 44-minute game: "Four (fewer) minutes could make us or break us. I'm interested to see how it goes."

Marc D'Amico

Will Bynum is in Boston and completed his physical today. He will not be with the team today or tomorrow.

Jay King

Will Bynum in Boston for physical. Stevens sounds unsure about his future.

Marc D'Amico

James Young is "most likely" not to play tomorrow against Brooklyn, according to Brad Stevens. Gerald Wallace is expected to be available.

Jay King

James Young running (or at least jogging) during shooting drills at the end of practice. Probably a good sign. Cs hope he can play Wed.

Jay King

Will Bynum could get waived. Or maybe he won't. Or maybe he will. masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Steve Bulpett

Bynum won't play in last two preseason games, but sources say Celts will wait to check for other moves before waiving him.
