There are worse teams to be playing without Ray Allen (sick) than the Nets. The 17-17 Celtics will try to push back past .500 against a Nets team that is in last place in the Atlantic Division with an 11-25 record.
That said, this may be a case of a team that is suffering through a hostile home crowd while biding its time for a move to Brooklyn. The Nets are 3-13 at home and 8-12 on the road.

|Adrian Wojnarowski on D&C: ‘Don’t see [Rondo deal] happening’||03.02.12 at 1:54 pm ET|
Yahoo! Sports NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski joined Dennis & Callahan Friday morning to discuss the trade rumors surrounding the Celtics, specifically concerning point guard Rajon Rondo. Wojnarowski said not to expect a big deal from Celtics president Danny Ainge before the trade deadline.
“I just don’t know what large thing is out there for them to do,” he said. “I think Danny’s going to try, and he’s ready with any of the Big Three to make a move if they can get them maybe some picks down the line, a good young player for down the line. But right now, whatever that is, I don’t think it’s shown itself. And as for Rondo, I don’t see that happening.”
Wojnarowski said Ainge might be asking teams what they would offer for Rondo in an attempt to determine the guard’s trade value going forward, but that’s different than actively “shopping” him. “Boston’s not doing that with Rondo,” he said, noting that it’s unlikely the guard will be moved this month.
