2012 NBA schedule: C's take on Nets Wednesday night

Brad Barr-US PRESSWIRE

The Boston Celtics haven't played great basketball, but they're above .500 with room for improvement. They're off until Wednesday night, when they play the Brooklyn Nets.

Nobody would say the Boston Celtics are playing well right now, but they'll have some time to regroup before facing the upstart Brooklyn Nets for the second time this season Wednesday night.

The C's looked shaky defensively against the Orlando Magic, blowing a 10-point halftime lead to trail by as much as seven in the fourth quarter before winning in overtime behind 15 points, 16 assists and nine rebounds from Rajon Rondo and 24 points and 10 rebounds from Kevin Garnett. Altogether, they're having a good year despite some confusing losses, sitting at 8-6 without having seemingly turned on the jets yet. Rondo's on top of his already elite game, Garnett and Paul Pierce are having good scoring years. That said, their performance is only good for fourth in the Atlantic Division right now.

The Celtics have a chance to beat a divisional opponent Wednesday night when they face the Nets after an extended rest. The last game between the two saw the result up in the air until the last minute, when poor free throw shooting cost the Celtics a chance at a win without Rondo. This time around, both squads will be healthy with Gerald Wallace back for the Nets, who take on the New York Knicks in their postponed first meeting Monday night.

Here's the Celtics' schedule combined with the national TV matchups over the next few days:

Monday, November 26: New York Knicks vs. Brooklyn Nets, 7 p.m., TNT

Wednesday, November 28: Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics, 7:30 p.m., CSN-New England, NBATV
