The Celtics' Big Three will be one of the featured attractions of the Nets' preseason schedule. The Nets will face Boston on October 19 at Worcester, MA. and on October 23 at the Meadowlands. Since the Nets play the Celts twice in the first two weeks of the regular season, that means that the two teams will face off four times in less than a month spanning pre and regular season. The Nets open preseason in Philadelphia on October 12. Nets play at home six days later vs. the Knicks.
