9 a.m. ET: Paul Pierce could not have looked much sharper than he did Tuesday, when the Celtics forward scored 29 points in a one-point loss to the Nets. Those same Nets host
Pierce and the Celtics on Thursday at the newly minted Barclays Center.
This is the sixth of eight preseason games for the Celtics, who are still a long way from knowing exactly what starting lineup and rotation they will employ once the regular
season begins. Whether the Nets, who rested their top six players on Tuesday, will give a few more minutes to Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and others in this game remains to be seen.
Join us for updates and analysis during the game, which tips off at 8 p.m.
