Nets vs. Celtics preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time

The Brooklyn Nets (21-31, 11th in the Eastern Conference) will be facing the Boston Celtics (41-12, first) at Barclays Center on Tuesday for the front end of a back-to-back and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place!

The Nets come into this matchup following a 123-103 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday in which Brooklyn guard Cam Thomas leading both teams in scoring with 25 points seemed like just a footnote for the game. This contest marked the debut of Nets guard Dennis Schröder, who had one of the best debuts in Nets history by putting up 15 points and 12 assists in 27 minutes of the bench.

The Celtics enter this game after a 110-106 win at the Miami Heat on Sunday in which Jayson Tatum played one of the better games that he has played this season. Tatum led Boston in points (26), rebounds (10), and assists (nine) while trying to hold off a Heat team missing Jimmy Butler. Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis is questionable for this matchup due to a lower back contusion so his availability will be important to monitor heading into this matchup.
