The Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics meet for the 3rd time in the last 4 Mondays when they collide at TD Garden for a 7:30 p.m. Eastern tip.

The red-hot Brooklyn Nets, banged up as they are, return to Boston for the second time in three weeks for a Monday night matchup against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden.

Brooklyn (27-23) has won six games in a row and are 7-1 since taking their most lopsided defeat of the season at the hands of the Celtics on Jan. 7.

That includes a win at Barclays Center over Boston on Jan. 14, their first win in 10 tries against the Celtics. The Nets will be looking to snap a five-game losing streak at TD Garden, where they last won on Jan. 2, 2016.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Brooklyn comes in off a 109-99 victory Friday night at home over the New York Knicks. The Celtics (30-19) had their five-game winning streak snapped Saturday night at home, losing to the Golden State Warriors 115-111 in a game that featured 21 lead changes and 14 ties.

The Nets were cold in the early going, falling behind New York by as much as 11 points in the first half before rallying and pulling away in the fourth quarter. Brooklyn held the Knicks to just 39 points and 35.7 percent shooting in the second half.

Undrafted rookie Theo Pinson, on a two-way contract with the Nets, led the way with a career-high 19 points. Ed Davis matched season-highs with 17 points and 16 rebounds and D’Angelo Russell finished with 12 points and four assists.

The Celtics tied the Warriors on Marcus Smart‘s 3-pointer with 1:08 remaining, but Smart fouled Klay Thompson with 46.1 seconds remaining to surrender the lead on Thompson’s two free throws.

Golden State turned the ball over twice in the final minute after Boston misses, but Marcus Morris misfired on a potential go-ahead 3 with 10.8 seconds left and Stephen Curry sealed the Celtics’ fate with a pair of free throws with 6.2 seconds to go.

Kyrie Irving led Boston with 32 points and 10 assists, Al Horford went for 22 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks and Jayson Tatum scored 20 points.

The Nets are 66-128 against the Celtics since they came into the NBA as part of the merger with the old American Basketball Association in 1976.

Boston owns the longest winning streak in the series, taking 12 straight games 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 single-game scoring high was set by the Celtics in a 135-107 win at Boston on April 13, 1986. The New Jersey Nets set the franchise’s high game against the Celtics in a 131-113 victory on Feb. 8, 2000, at East Rutherford.

Boston owns the largest margin of victory in the series, a 116-79 win at Piscataway on Oct. 31, 1979. The Nets’ most lopsided win was a 117-81 win at East Rutherford on Dec. 25, 2002.

The high individual game in the series belongs to Mike Newlin, who scored 52 points for New Jersey in an overtime loss at Piscataway on Dec. 16, 1979. Paul Pierce holds the high individual mark for the Celtics with 48 points in a Dec. 1, 2001, overtime win at East Rutherford.

In regulation time, Vince Carter scored 45 points for the Nets in an April 9, 2005, victory at East Rutherford. Pierce had 44 points for Boston on March 22, 2001, also at East Rutherford.

Since the move to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are 10-16 against the Celtics. The longest winning streak was Boston’s 10-game run from Jan. 5, 2016, to Jan. 7 of this year. Brooklyn had three consecutive victories from April 10, 2013, to Jan. 26, 2014.

The highest-scoring game for both teams in the Brooklyn era came on Oct. 26, 2016, with the Celtics beat the Nets in Boston 122-117.

The largest margin since 2012 was Boston’s 120-95 win at home on Nov. 20, 2015. The Nets biggest win since moving to Brooklyn came on March 21, 2014, at Barclays Center when they topped the Celtics 114-98.

The individual highs of the Brooklyn era for each team were set in their last meeting at Barclays Center on Jan. 14, when D’Angelo Russell scored 34 points for Brooklyn and Jayson Tatum matched that mark with 34 for Boston.
