The Boston Celtics entered the NBA Playoffs as the second seed of the Eastern Conference. In the first two games of the series against the Brooklyn Nets, the C’s proved they are for real and they can definitely be a contender to reach the NBA Finals this season.

We all new that the Celtics are young and talented team who plays great defense and have a couple of deadly scorers on the offensive end but Ime Udoka’s squad has shown character and winning mentality.

In Game 1 the Celtics were one point down going into the last possession and scored for the win. In the next one, Brooklyn was up by 17-points but the Celtics managed to come back and win by 7!

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will play with a chip on their shoulders after shooting 1 of 17 combined in the second half of Game 2.

Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets Game 3 Predictions

Nets -3.5

The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a tough 114-107 loss to the Brooklyn Nets in which their two start player Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving hit only 4 field goals each in the entire game. Durant finished with 27 games thanks to his 18 free throws made while Irving dropped only 10 points. This time around there are no excuses for the Nets. They have to win Game 3 against the Celtics and they have to that in style to show who the better team among the two is. They are definitely capable to do so since Durant and Irving has been through tough playoff battles before and this should be an routine game in which they will show their class. The Nets will certainly need to do their job defensively against Tatum and Brown but the offensive performance of Durant and Irving will win this one for them.

Player Prop Pick

Kevin Durant over 29.5

Kevin Durant is the key man for the Brooklyn Nets especially now when the team is 2-0 down. Durant is coming off one of his worst playoff performances as the two-time champion shot only 4-of-17 in Game 2. Yes, he scored 27 points but 18 of them were from the free throw line. KD averaged 29.9 points per game in the regular season and that is the minimum he needs to go in order to give the Nets and chance of winning tonight. No team has ever returned from being 3-0 down, so Durant will not allow the Nets to lose tonight. How is going to do that? Well, he is probably going over 40 tonight.
