8 a.m. ET: Any Bostonians with a diehard craving for live preseason basketball can finally get their fill when the Celtics host the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday. Afterward, hopefully those fans can also get professional help. Kevin Garnett presumably will be back in the starting lineup after getting the night off Monday in the first game of a back-to-back set. Whatever other machinations Celtics coach Doc Rivers is plotting with the roster will not be known until about an hour before game time. The first thing to look for in this game will the Nets’ new uniforms. The franchise shed the red, white and blue from its previous 44 years of existence for a more Jay-Z-esque black-and-white scheme, so colorblind fans should be happy that they get to see the same thing as the rest of us. The second thing to look for will be how Deron Williams and Joe Johnson mesh, albeit in limited duty, in the new-look backcourt that might be the league’s best. Join us for updates and analysis from the TD Garden during the game, which tips off at 7:30 p.m.
