Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics have a record of 10-9 and they are now on a three-way tie for the eighth-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference standings along with the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks. The Brooklyn Nets were their most recent opponents and they lost that match by a wide margin of 19 points. The good part is that Jaylen Brown is back on the roster and he shot 33% from the field to finish with 13 points. Marcus Smart was the team’s best scorer with 20 points as Jayson Tatum struggled on the floor shooting only 4-of-16 from the field to tally only a subpar 15 points.

San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs are now the third-worst team in the NBA Western Conference with their record at 4-13. They are just above the New Orleans Pelicans and Houston Rockets as they head on to this matchup with the Boston Celtics on a four-game losing streak. Dejounte Murray has been carrying this team and he is getting some help from Keldon Johnson. Jakob Poeltl is back on the roster and that gives them a bit of a chance to win games. Doug McDermott is healthier as compared to the following weeks and he is expected to help space out the floor for Johnson and Murray to operate on the opposing team’s defense.
Players to Watch: D. Murray PG 17 GP 17 GS 34.6 MIN 18.4 PTS 0.8 OR 7.5 DR 8.2 REB 8.2 AST 2.1 STL 0.5 BLK 2.4 TO 2 PF 3.5 AST/TO 20.28 PER
