Boston Celtics vs. Toronto Raptors – Tuesday, February 26th

Where: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Stream: Drama on TNT, NBA League Pass
NBA Basketball Betting Odds:
The Celtics step into this evening’s contest sporting a 37-23 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Atlantic. And in the Eastern Conference, Boston currently comes in at No. 5 overall. Clearly Boston is not having the kind of season they were hoping for. Following last year’s surprising playoff push, many NBA basketball betting fans were expecting Boston to dominate this season. Although at times they have done just that, they’re not looking that great as of late. Since the end of the season is in sight, Boston will surely need to turn things around as soon as possible.
Given that they’re facing the second best team in the conference this evening, it seems highly unlikely that they’ll rebound tonight. Nevertheless, tonight’s sportsbook odds are still giving Boston a fighting chance on the road this Tuesday evening. That’s despite the fact that Boston is 0-5 in their last 5 versus Toronto.
Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (23.8 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 6.9 apg), Jayson Tatum (16.4 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.9 apg), and Marcus Morris (14.4 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 1.4 apg).
The Raptors leap into this evening’s Eastern Conference matchup sporting a brilliant 44-17 record on the season. That record ranks them as the top dog in the Atlantic Division and second overall in the Eastern Conference. At the present time, Toronto is but 2 ½ games behind the conference leading Bucks. All in all the Raptors could certainly bridge that gap but they’ll need to mount a lengthy win streak and a bit of luck as well. Their recent loss to the magic snapped a 7 game win streak that wasn’t enough to tie them with Milwaukee. Nevertheless the team should be able to pick up another win at home tonight.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (26.9 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 3.3 apg), Pascal Siakam (16.1 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.9 apg), and Serge Ibaka (15.9 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 1.5 apg).
