The Boston Celtics will be looking to sustain their success that was shown during the 19-20 campaign before the Coronavirus break.  The Celtics are in 2nd place in the Atlantic and have a record of (43-21) during this season.  Boston is averaging 113 points per contest this season, with the offense being guided by Jayson Tatum.  Let’s take a closer look at the roster, remaining schedule, and odds for the Celtics once play resumes. 

Roster Breakdown: Tatum is registering 23.6 points per contest, while pulling down over 7 rebounds per game.  Kemba Walker is collecting over 21 points per game, while passing out nearly 5 helpers per contest.  Jaylen Brown completes this three headed monster out of the Celtics guards, as Brown is also recording over 20 points per game.  Outside of these three averaging over 20 points per game, Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart are also registering double figures.  Center Enes Kanter is totaling 8.2 points and a team leading 7.7 rebounds per contest. 

Remaining Schedule: vs. Milwaukee Bucks, Washington Wizards (2), Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets, Portland Trail Blazers, Memphis Grizzlies, and Miami Heat.

Help or Hurt: The Celtics have been about the same all season, minus a stretch where Boston lost 6 of 8.  Boston finished a stretch of games going 2-4 before the league was postponed.  However, the Celtics did lose two of those games in overtime.  The Celtics have one of the easier schedules out of the teams remaining, as Boston will be looking to improve their seeding during the final 8 games.  I think this break helped Boston, as it gave the Celtics a chance to regain their footing, as the Celtics three headed guard monster had played in and started 159/159 games between the three players. 

Odds: The Boston Celtics have the 2nd best odds to win the Eastern Conference Finals at +700, which sits only behind the Milwaukee Bucks.  The Celtics have the 5th best shot when it comes to the odds to win the NBA Finals Championship (+2000). The Celtics have a great blend of talent on offense and defense and should fare well once the postseason arrives.  Look for the Celtics to get back on track once play resumes and head into postseason play with some momentum.
