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.

|Boston Celtics and WEEI honor Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell on their 1,000th NBA broadcast together||02.02.12 at 3:37 pm ET|
Grande and Max are about to hit a big broadcasting milestone. Below is a press release on the accomplishment:
Play-by-Play duo have called Celtics games on radio since the 2001 season
BOSTON (February 2, 2012) ‘ The Boston Celtics and WEEI will honor its radio play-by-play team Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell prior to their 1,000th Celtics broadcast tomorrow night at TD Garden. Grande and Max will be presented a plaque by Celtics Managing Partner Steve Pagliuca, Team President Rich Gotham, Entercom Senior Vice President Julie Kahn and Vice President of Programming for WEEI Jason Wolfe to mark the milestone in a pre-game ceremony prior to the team’s home game vs. the New York Knicks.
“The entire Boston Celtics organization would like to congratulate Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell on their 1,000th broadcast together,” Boston Celtics President Rich Gotham said. “Grande and Max have become the voices of the Celtics on the radio for a whole generation of fans. They have exhibited great chemistry and professionalism throughout their partnership and we look forward to many more seasons of high quality play-by-play and analysis from them.”
Grande and Max began calling Celtics games together in 2001 on 1510 AM. In 2005, the game broadcasts moved to WRKO, and in 2007 to their current home on WEEI. During their 1,000 broadcasts Grande and Max have provided the call for some of the great moments in Celtics history, including, Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarter Finals against the Philadelphia 76ers, which marked the team’s first playoff series win since 1992, the Celtics historic comeback in the 2002 Eastern Conference Finals against the New Jersey Nets, “Max night” when Cedric’s number was retired on December 15, 2003, the epic Game 7 against Cleveland in 2008 Eastern Conference Semifinals and of course, the night the Celtics won Banner 17 defeating the Los Angeles Lakers on June 17, 2008.
“It’s been my honor to work with Grande and Max for so many years. Sean and I started at WEEI together many moons ago and he is without a doubt, one of the best announcers in the NBA today,” Jason Wolfe, Vice President of Programming for WEEI said. “Max has made the transition from player to analyst as smoothly as any former player I’ve worked with and I’m so proud to be able to share in this terrific milestone with them.”
