Celtics at the top of the East
Boston is doing well this season, the team is certainly aiming to fight for the championship. Celtics leader Jason Tatum, who is one of the main contenders for the MVP title, is in great shape. The club is leading in the East, but you can see that the players do not always give their best. In the last meeting, they managed to beat the Lakers on their court only after overtime – 125:121. With the win, Boston snapped a three-fight losing streak. Three players will miss this match due to injury.
Networking among conference leaders
The teams played each other twice this season, the games were not memorable with high scores, in both cases the away victories were celebrated by the Boston basketball players – 103:92 and 109:98.
There are two strong clubs, although the bookmakers give a clear advantage to the owners of the floor. Boston plays on its court, is the leader of the conference, and the Celtics’ personal losses are not as serious as the opponent’s. Let’s also not forget that Brooklyn had two days less rest. We bet on the success of the hosts with a handicap of -5.5 points.
