Boston Celtics Betting
There is so much that has been said between Boston Celtics teammates and that seems to be the wake-up call that they needed to mount a nine-game winning streak. That run was broken by the Detroit Pistons, 112-111, prior to the NBA All-Star Weekend. During that loss, Jaylen Brown was the team’s best performer with 31 points, six assists and two rebounds while Jayson Tatum followed up with 22 points, five assists and four rebounds but had seven turnovers. Veteran center Al Horford tallied 19 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and two blocks. This team needed more defense during the loss and should be addressed entering this match.

Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets are still looking to pick up the pieces after the long losing streak that made them drop to 8th overall in the NBA Eastern Conference. James Harden has been traded during the NBA trade deadline and in return, the Nets got Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond. Two players are already contributing well as the team awaits Simmons to get good conditioning while Kevin Durant is still nursing an injury. The vaccination saga of Kyrie Irving looks to get a good turn as the Mayor of New York City may lift the restriction by the end of the month.
