One game on the schedule basketball fans are especially excited for is the Brooklyn Nets battling it out against the Boston Celtics. Both teams are 1-0 to start the season and Kyrie Irving faces off against his former team. Irving was once loved in Boston but has since become public enemy number one.

Nets Notes: Kevin Durant's Brooklyn Debut | Brooklyn Nets

ウィリアムヒルWhile it was only the first game of the season, Boston fans are seeing the potential of this group. The Celtics edged out the Milwaukee Bucks to open the season. Milwaukee is once-again projected to be a top team in the Eastern Conference, so a win over the Bucks is a huge motivational win for the Celtics.Brooklyn certainly turned turns as well. The two-headed monster of Durant and Irving will be tough to manage in the East this season. If the Nets can find a third piece to the puzzle, Brooklyn could be a top contender in the Conference.

Like last season, Boston is not afraid to shoot the ball. The Celtics lobbed 101 shots against the Bucks in their victory.

Neither team is known for elite defense, so we could see a plethora of scoring in Boston on Friday.
