The Nets will look to increase their winning streak to 5 games and pull closer to playoff position as they take on the Celtics in Boston Wednesday night. The Nets trail Boston by just 2 games for the final playoff spot, and Philadelphia by 2 1/2 for the Atlantic Division lead. When these teams met a week and a half ago, the Nets fought off a late run by the Celtics, with Jason Kidd nearly missing another triple-double. The Nets have won 6 of their last 8 meetings with the Celtics, including 2 of their last 3 trips to the Fleet Center.
