Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers live stream: Watch NBA game online

For the Celtics, there aren't many silver linings about Tuesday night's brutal overtime loss to the Nets.

After all, Boston blew a 21-point second half lead at home to a sub-.500 team, allowed 51 points in the fourth quarter alone, and lost both Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown with injuries.

Searching for any good news in that devastation is a near-impossible task, but here's the only good thing about it: There's no time for the Celtics to wallow in the loss.

Instead, the Celtics lineup — or rather, what's left of it — will be back in action Wednesday night in Cleveland, taking on the worst team in the Eastern Conference.

Brad Stevens will have to roll out a makeshift lineup for the contest, with Kemba Walker, Hayward, and Brown already ruled out.

Luckily for Stevens, he should have Jayson Tatum available. The reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Month had to miss Tuesday's contest due to illness, but he's probable against the Cavs.

Here's how to watch the Celtics vs. Cavaliers, including NBC Sports Boston's pregame coverage, beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The Celtics get point guard Kemba Walker back after he's been out the past five games with a knee injury as they host the Brooklyn Nets at TD Garden Tuesday night, but they'll be without newly minted Eastern Conference player of the month Jayson Tatum, who will be out with an illness on his 22nd birthday.

It's part of a seemingly never-ending quest for full health from the C's. Core players Walker, Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart have all played in the same game only 14 times in 59 games so far this season.

Even with Walker on a planned 20-25 minute restriction and without Tatum, the Celtics (41-18) should be able to bounce back from a tough overtime loss to the Houston Rockets on Saturday and right themselves against the Kyrie Irving-less Nets (26-33), who come in having lost four in a row and five of six.

Irving, who missed the first two meetings against Boston this season with a shoulder injury is out for the season after having surgery on it. So, he'll avoid the wrath of Celtics fans, at least in-person for this season, after his free-agent departure from Boston over the summer. 

The Nets and Celtics have split their two meetings this season, each team winning at home. They'll conclude their season series on March 21 in Brooklyn.

Here's how to watch C's vs. Nets, including NBC Sports Boston's pregame coverage beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET.
