Proximity may link the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics to some degree, but in recent years that has not been the primary motivator behind the relationship between the two teams. Billy King’s disastrous trade for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett stripped the team of future assets before the team spiraled out of playoff contention. However, the Celtics shipped the last of their Brooklyn picks off to Cleveland in the Kyrie Irving deal, giving the Nets a good chance to put the Celtics out of their minds for a time with a win to close out 2017.
