Nets host Celtics in biggest game of season

It’s Boston day! Ben Simmons’ return to Philadelphia was a dud for a few reasons, including the best Sixers’ absences draining some juice from the match-up. The schedule-makers once again exiled Brooklyn from the prized island of Christmas Day, where they existed for so long. The Nets don’t even have a game on the NBA’s B-holiday slate, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

So when Brooklyn, in the midst of an NBA-high four-game win-streak, plays host to the Boston Celtics on Sunday evening, it may wind up being the biggest regular season game of the year.
