About Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets
Celtics vs Nets
The Nets and Celtics have played each other over 200 times with the Celtics winning well over half of those games. Even though the Nets have a long way to go to catch up to their rival. Due to being so close geographically and their growing rosters in the early 2000’s, the two teams developed a rivalry that will always exist. The Nets swept the Celtics in the 2003 playoffs after dealing with some back and forth tension between the players all season. The tension between the players even carried on after the Nets went to Brooklyn in 2012. In one Celtics Nets game, Rajon Rondo, Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries were all rejected and suspended for games after and some players were fined. A trade deal in the following season between some of those players made the teams and even the fans believe that the rivalry was still on the table. Celtics players Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were dealt to the Nets in exchange for Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries and more. The trade sadly lead the Nets to a few unsuccessful seasons, they only won one playoff series with Garnett and Pierce. Both teams are still looking for their next chance to beat the other and make it to the NBA playoffs. Nets Celtics game tickets are available on CheapTickets, find tickets now.
