Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics are not starting off on the right track after the NBA All-Star Weekend with a loss against the Brooklyn Nets, 109-121. They are in a tight battle for positioning in the NBA Eastern Conference standings and they slipped to 5th place with the Miami Heat overtaking them. Jayson Tatum was the team’s best scoring option against the Nets with 31 points along with five boards and three assists. Jaylen Brown shot a horrible 5-of-23 from the line to only finish with 13 points. Marcus Smart did his best to pick up the slack but his 19 points were not enough to pull the Celtics close to the Nets.
