NBA - US Sports: Celtics 'ready to roll'

Boston coach Ime Udoka says the Celtics are itching to get their postseason campaign started ahead of Game 1 of their first round series against Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.

Boston are 10/11 to win with a -4 handicap in the Point Spread and the Nets can be backed at 6/4 in the Money Line. You can follow the acion via our Sports Live Streaming service.

Celtics finding form

The Celtics finished the season strongly and four of their final five regular season games to secure the second seed in the Eastern Conference. 

Boston went 17-5 after the All-Star break and are one of the form teams going into the playoffs, and Udoka says his players are excited by the prospect of taking on the Nets.

"You can tell the group is ready to play," Udoka said on Saturday, via "The rest is needed and is good, but at some point, you start to get a little jittery and ready to play after this much time off and knowing what's coming up. So you can feel the anticipation and our guys are ready to roll."

Celtics have sign over Nets

Boston won the regular season series 3-1 against the Nets, winning each of the last three meetings between the two teams, and they have the advantage of playing the first two games of the first round match-up at TD Garden.

Neither team has any fresh injury concerns going into Sunday's Game 1 and Brooklyn will be without Ben Simmons due to an ongoing back issue - but there has been speculation he could be available and may make his Nets debut at some stage during the series despite the fact he is yet to feature at all this season.
