Last time these two teams met, the Nets held out their Big Three in a game that turned into a wash-out, literally. This time, it will be the Celts holding out their Big Three. Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce played 120 minutes combined in Boston's Monday night loss at the Garden. The Nets will once again have Nenad Krstic at center as he continues his comeback, but Jason Kidd will remain benched. Boki Nachar, the NBA's leading preseason scorer at 27.0 ppg, is also expected to get big minutes.
