Advice and prediction

In what was a rough night offensively for the Nets’ Big 3, the trio of Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving still combined for 82 points – and there’s every reason to expect they’ll surpass that total on Tuesday night. James Harden only took 13 shots in the game, and Brooklyn’s stars shot a combined 5-for-24 from beyond the arc. The Celtics had an off shooting night of their own, going 36.9 percent from the field. Without Brown in the lineup, though, it’s difficult to see how Boston can keep up offensively, especially on the road. Take the Nets -9.5.

Prediction: Nets 122, Celtics 109
