Celtics vs. Nets live stream: Watch Tatum, Durant battle in Game 1 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The waiting is over: The first-round NBA playoff series between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets begins Sunday afternoon at TD Garden.

It's a rematch of last season's first-round series that Brooklyn won in five games over an injury-depleted Boston squad.

A lot has changed in just a year.

The Celtics are playing better than just about every team in the league. They've won 26 of their last 32 games, ranked No. 1 in defensive rating, No. 9 in offensive rating and No. 2 in net rating. The C's earned the No. 2 seed and have home court advantage.

They are much better equipped to take down the Nets, who just wrapped up a rollercoaster regular season full of setbacks such as injuries, a blockbuster trade that sent James Harden to Philly in exchange for Ben Simmons, and Kyrie Irving missing most of the team's home games due to New York City's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Brooklyn fell all the way to the No. 7 seed, but the Celtics cannot underestimate this Nets team. Kevin Durant and Irving are two of the best players in the league with a proven track record of clutch heroics in high-pressure playoff moments.

The Celtics are slight betting favorites to win this series, and most experts expect it go six or seven games.
