The Nets are heavy favorites in this series, and it's easy to understand why.

They finished the regular season with the No. 2 record in the Eastern Conference despite not having their superstar trio of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving healthy and in the lineup for many games. There's a good chance all three will be ready for the series opener, and they will pose plenty of matchup problems for the Celtics.

The C's earned the No. 7 seed after beating the Washington Wizards in the NBA play-in tournament Tuesday night. Jayson Tatum scored 50 points for the Celtics in the win, and they'll need several more dominant performances from the All-Star forward to make this Round 1 series a competitive one.
