1. Can Boston Deal With the Nets’ Bigs?

One weakness the Celtics will have for the rest of the season will be in the front-court. They are working with Daniel Theis as their starting center in a small lineup and have Enes Kanter and Robert Williams III as their backups.

Going up against a team like Brooklyn with guys like DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen won’t be easy for the Celtics.

Boston needs to focus on staying even with the Nets on the glass. They can’t afford to give up offensive rebounds and easy second-chance shots. It will be a task, but it is one that the Celtics will need to figure out by the time the postseason arrives.
