10 a.m.: On Monday night, the Nets took a cue from their part-owner, rapper Jay-Z, and provided the blueprint for how to beat the suddenly scuffling Knicks. On Wednesday, the Nets can give themselves sole possession of the Atlantic Division with a win over the Celtics and a Knicks loss to the Bucks. After close to a decade of the hard knock life, the Nets could be big pimpin’. Rajon Rondo will try to pass John Stockton with his 38th straight game with 10 or more assists, and the Celtics will try to win their third consecutive game, although they needed overtime to outlast the Magic on Sunday. This game is about more than just bragging rights, though. The Celtics are 1-2 in the division and cannot afford to suffer many more losses in the Atlantic if they hope to secure a strong seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Nope, it is never too early to start thinking about playoff scenarios. Join us for updates and analysis from the TD Garden during the game, which tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
