Cam Thomas (SG) is listed as a game-time decision, and the Nets will also be without the services of Nic Claxton (C) due to injury. Additionally, Cameron Johnson (SF) and Dariq Whitehead (F) are game-time decisions.
The Nets are coming off a notable victory against the LA Clippers (W100-93) on November 8th, showcasing their ability to secure wins on the road.
The Boston Celtics, currently holding a 5-2 record, sit in third place in the Eastern Conference. Despite a recent loss, they are determined to bounce back and assert their dominance in the tournament.
Jason Tatum's Impact
Jason Tatum has been the focal point of the Celtics' offense, averaging 28.4 points per game with remarkable shooting percentages. His versatility and scoring ability make him a formidable force on the court.
