Online NBA Betting Odds:
The Celtics leap into this evening’s matchup sporting a 41-26 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Atlantic Division. And in the Eastern Conference, that record ranks Boston 5th overall. At the present time the Celts are 9 games behind the conference leading Milwaukee Bucks. With that in mind, it’s clear that Boston still has plenty of room for improvement. Granted they did just get out of a decent sized slump, so the franchise is happy just to have this ship back on track. But will Boston be able to get the win on the road tonight? After all, this marks their 4th straight road game on the road in the West Coast. While they have won the last 3 there’s no guarantee that they get the win tonight. Not when considering the fact that Boston is 3-7 in their last 10 against the Clippers.
Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (23.5 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 6.9 apg), Jayson Tatum (16.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 1.9 apg), and Marcus Morris (14.2 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 1.4 apg).
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers clip their way into this Monday night contest sporting a 38-29 record. At the present time that record ranks Los Angeles 1nd in the Pacific Division but 8th overall in the Western Conference. Currently 7 ½ games behind the conference leading Golden State Warriors, the Clippers can certainly improve their ranking. However, they’re in the middle of a highly competitive Western Conference race. Right now three teams are 7 ½ games behind Golden State. With that in mind, it’s imperative for Los Angeles to set themselves apart from the bunch.
Players to Watch: Tobias Harris (20.9 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 2.7 apg), Lou Williams (20.2 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 5.4 apg), and Danilo Gallinari (19.2 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 2.4 apg).
