Celtics Host Pierce, Nets Tonight at TD Garden
Garnett Will Not Play
The Celtics will face Paul Pierce for the third time this season and the second time at home when they host the Brooklyn Nets at 7:30 p.m. tonight at TD Garden. Boston will have revenge on its mind as it fell to Brooklyn in the previous two meetings of the season.
Kevin Garnett will miss tonight's matchup, which marks his fourth consecutive game that he's missed due to back spasms. Rookie Kelly Olynyk, who led the Celtics in scoring on Wednesday, will look to continue his recent success as he is averaging 11.2 points and 7.3 rebounds in his last nine games.
