The Brooklyn Nets finish up a 3-game, 4-day road set with a Monday visit to TD Garden for their 1st meeting of the season with the Boston Celtics.

The Brooklyn Nets bring a three-game winning streak and a lengthy injury list into TD Garden Monday night for their first meeting of the season against the Boston Celtics.

The Nets (20-21) added two more players to the injury list on Monday afternoon, as starting shooting guard Joe Harris and reserve forward DeMarre Carroll won’t play against the Celtics.

Harris left Sunday’s 117-100 win over the Chicago Bulls after turning an ankle in the fourth quarter and though he indicated to the bench he was fine as he came out, he’s officially out with a right ankle sprain.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Carroll played 31 minutes on Sunday, but is listed as out with a sore left knee. So there may be some unusual player combinations as the Nets will have only 10 players available, with Theo Pinson being brought back from the Long Island Nets of the G League on his two-way contract.

Boston (23-15) last played Friday when they beat the Dallas Mavericks 114-93 in the second game of a four-game homestand.

In Chicago Sunday, D’Angelo Russell scored a game-high 28 points and added five assists as Brooklyn improved to 3-0 in the new calendar year. Carroll added 20 points off the bench.

Reserve Ed Davis grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds, Spencer Dinwiddie also had five assists and Jarrett Allen knocked down 19 points and added two blocked shots.

On Friday, the Celtics never trailed and led by as much as 23 points in beating the Mavericks behind a game-high 21 points and three steals from Jaylen Brown.

Daniel Theis added 13 rebounds and two blocks and Gordon Hayward tossed in 16 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists. Al Horford finished with 10 points and eight dimes, while Terry Rozier dished seven assists. Brad Wanamaker nabbed three steals.

The Nets are 65-127 all-time against Boston since joining the NBA in 1976 and have lost the last nine games in the series.

The Celtics own the longest winning streak in the series, putting together 12 consecutive victories from March 3, 2007, to Feb. 5, 2010. The Nets have won five in a row three separate times, most recently from Dec. 25, 2002, to Jan. 25, 2004.

The highest-scoring game in the series came at Piscataway on Dec. 16, 1979, when Mike Newlin poured in 52 points for the New Jersey Nets in an overtime loss. The most in the series from a regulation game was Vince Carter‘s 45 points in a Nets’ win at East Rutherford on April 9, 2005.

Paul Pierce scored 48 points in the Celtics’ overtime win at East Rutherford on Dec. 1, 2001, and also has the high mark for regulation time with 44 points in a win at East Rutherford on March 22, 2001.

Brooklyn’s largest margin was in a 114-98 win at Barclays Center on March 21, 2014.

Avery Bradley set the high mark for Boston with 28 points in the March 21, 2014, loss at Barclays Center, a total matched on Dec. 31, 2017, by Kyrie Irving in a Celtics’ win at Boston.
