Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics are on a roll winning their last five games and they have risen to 8th place in the NBA Eastern Conference with their record now at 30-25. Another win here would make them overtake the Brooklyn Nets in the standings. Their most recent opponents were the Orlando Magic and that game was a blowout victory with the final score settling at 116-83. Jaylen Brown was the team’s best scorer with 26 points while Dennis Schroder was not far behind with 22 points off the bench. Jayson Tatum struggled but was able to tally 15 points along with nine rebounds and seven assists.

Brooklyn Nets Betting

This is just painful to see as the once-mighty Brooklyn Nets are on their biggest falloff with an eight-game losing streak. The last time the Nets won was against the San Antonio Spurs way back on January 21. Their record plummeted to 29-24 and another loss will make them fall another spot below the NBA Eastern Conference at 8th place. James Harden is back in this upcoming game but Kyrie Irving is still on the clause that he won’t play home games after refusing to get vaccinated. Kevin Durant is far from returning from his injury and other players from the Nets’ roster need to step up.

Players to Watch: K. Durant PF 36 GP 36 GS 36.5 MIN 29.3 PTS 0.6 OR 6.9 DR 7.4 REB 5.8 AST 0.8 STL 0.9 BLK 3 TO 1.9 PF 1.9 AST/TO 26.43 PER
