We all remember what happened the last time the Celtics and Nets met . . .
. . . it ended with Rajon Rondo, Kris Humphries, and a handful of other NBA players in the stands pulling themselves off of each other.
Both the C's and Nets are back at it Tuesday on Christmas Day.
Will there be peace on the basketball court as families gather around and watch from their TV sets? Or will the two teams pick up where they left off last game and get a little too physical?
Either way, both teams aren't playing great basketball, and it's showing.
The Celtics, says Sports Illustrated's Ian Thomsen, don't have an identity yet 26 games into the season. That's a problem.
The Christmas Day game is the start of a big road trip for the C's, and the outcome of that game could set the tone for the rest of the trip.
