Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Nets are finding ways to score but the problem is really at the defensive end. They are giving up 111.2 points per game, something they cannot afford against the Celtics. Spencer Dinwiddie will anchor the offense anew, hoping to get help from Caris LeVert on Tuesday. Joe Harris could also chip in as head coach Kenny Atkinson tries to survive this season without key players.

Players to watch: S. Dinwiddie PG 59 GP 44 GS 31.4 MIN 20.9 PTS 0.5 OR 3 DR 3.5 REB 6.8 AST 0.6 STL 0.3 BLK 2.7 TO 2.9 PF 2.5 AST/TO 18.11 PER

C. LeVert SG 34 GP 20 GS 28.3 MIN 16.3 PTS 0.9 OR 2.8 DR 3.7 REB 3.8 AST 1.1 STL 0.1 BLK 2.6 TO 1.9 PF 1.5 AST/TO 13.07 PER

J. Harris SF 58 GP 58 GS 31.2 MIN 13.8 PTS 0.9 OR 3.4 DR 4.3 REB 2.1 AST 0.6 STL 0.3 BLK 1.4 TO 2.2 PF 1.5 AST/TO 12.53 PER

Boston Celtics Betting

There is a lot at stake for the Boston Celtics in this game. A win would push them to second spot in a tie with the Raptors. Coach Brad Stevens will turn to Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward on offense. They are not doing bad on defense either, allowing only 106.6 points per game. Boston cannot afford to take Brooklyn for granted with Dinwiddie and LeVert capable of lighting it up.

Players to Watch: J. Tatum PF 55 GP 55 GS 34.5 MIN 23.5 PTS 1 OR 6.1 DR 7.1 REB 2.9 AST 1.3 STL 0.9 BLK 2.2 TO 2.1 PF 1.3 AST/TO 20.56 PER

J. Brown SG 49 GP 49 GS 34 MIN 20.4 PTS 1.1 OR 5.3 DR 6.4 REB 2.2 AST 1.1 STL 0.3 BLK 2.3 TO 3 PF 0.9 AST/TO 17.14 PER
