Boston Celtics Current Form
Boston Celtics would be looking forward to continuing their fantabulous run of form before they step into the play-off fixtures. The game is set to be played at the Barclays Center and the Nets would be aiming for a 40th triumph of the season but the last season conference finalists Boston Celtics will not let it slip easily.
