8 a.m. ET: The Celtics will play a great game on Wednesday, as will their opponent, the Mavericks. Or maybe only one team will play well. Or maybe neither. Nobody can really tell anymore with these two teams.
The Celtics and the Mavericks each made some interesting moves during the offseason. While the Celtics went all-out with depth to put them in position to contend for the next two to three years, the Mavericks stocked up on aging veterans on short-term contracts to free them up for a roster purge at any time. So far, the results for both teams has been mixed.
Boston (11-9) comes into the game having alternated three wins with three losses over their last six games. Dallas (11-10) has won three straight as one of the streakiest clubs in the NBA. Together on the same court, there is no telling what the expect on Wednesday.
