Tonight, the Celtics will play another crucial home game when they host the Brooklyn Nets. This Nets team hasn't played too well lately, as they have lost three out of their last five games. But that doesn't mean their an easy win. The Celtics are still gonna need a good performance tonight. Here are their five keys to victory: 5. GIVE LEE MORE SHOTS: On Sunday night, Courtney Lee shot just 1/4 from the field in 17 minutes. He's pretty good, but isn't getting chances anymore. Make sure to give him his fair share. 4. KEEP GETTING CONTRIBUTIONS FROM RANDOLPH: The breakout player from this last week has easily been Shavlik Randolph. Randolph scored 16 against the Cavs and 8 against the Wizards. He just needs to keep this up. No complaints. 3. GET A LOT OF REBOUNDS FROM KG: In his return Sunday night, Kevin Garnett had just six rebounds. Now I know it was his first game, but they need him at his best right now. They need him to get 10+ a game. 2. HOPE GREEN HAS A BIG GAME: Against the Wizards, Jeff Green scored just eight points on 3/8 shooting. It was only one game, so I'm not worried. But if this happens again tonight, the Celtics will be in trouble. 1. KEEP BASS HOT: In these last few weeks, Brandon Bass has played terrific. On Sunday, Bass led the Celtics with 20 points on 9/12 shooting. If he plays like this tonight, they will definitely win. Tip-off for this one will be at 8:00 pm ET. You can see it on CSN-NE and ESPN.
