The Celtics face the Brooklyn Nets for the first time in the team's history. The Celtics have the late game today and hopefully will have time to get the jitters out and we will see some good play from our young guys. They face a Nets team with a few players with NBA experience in Marshon Brooks, Al Thornton, Julian Wright, and Adam Morrison. In fact, the Nets boast the only 2 time champion in Summer League in Adam Morrison. The Nets lost their first game to the Magic, 92-88.

In their first game, a 73-65 win over OKC, Jared Sullinger, E'Twaun Moore, Kris Joseph, and Dionte Christmas stood out for their solid play. I expect that we will see more of the same today from these players as all 4 showed good fundamentals and hopefully can build on that start in today's game. We should see more from Fab Melo, Sean Williams, and JaJuan Johnson in today's game as well.

Doc and Danny were on hand yesterday to observe and evaluate while Tyronn Lue did the coaching. The evaluation will continue in this game as decisions have to be made concerning several of the players on the team. For the fans, though, it's just fun to be watching Celtics basketball again.
