The Boston Celtics boast a big three that carried them to the tail end of the 2000s and had a good run in the early 2010s. The best player on that team was ironically a declining Kevin Garnett with a 93 overall. Paul Pierce trails Garnett with a 92 overall and he brings in a 2-way scoring for the Boston Celtics. Ray Allen rounds up the big three and he is the decade’s deadliest shooter at 88 overall. Rajon Rondo is at his best when he was wearing a Celtics uniform and he is at 85 overall and arguably forming the “Big 4” along with Garnett, Pierce and Allen. Rounding up the core rotation are three players with 76 overall with Leon Powe, Kendrick Perkins and James Posey.
Houston Rockets Betting
This Houston Rockets team comprises of the first championship year and that means no Clyde Drexler. Hakeem Olajuwon leads the team with a 96 overall and the second-best player is a power forward Otis Thorpe with a far 80. Kenny Smith mans the point guard position and he is a kick out shooter for Olajuwon with his 76 overall rating. A young Robert Horry is in this team and he is clearly a three-point specialist from the let-go with a 76 overall. Sam Cassel and Vernon Maxwell form that three-headed guard rotation for the Rockets as they have a 75 and 74 overall respectively. Mario Ellie starts at small forward and he is at 72 overall. Scott Brooks and Matt Bullards are 71 and 69 overall respectively to round up the roster.
Boston Celtics vs Houston Rockets Betting Picks
The Boston Celtics are top-heavy and possess a very efficient bench who knows their roles. This will overwhelm the Rockets who will just rely on Olajuwon getting the ball but Rondo leading the charge guarding the backcourt will make sure that ball won’t reach the hall of game center.
