The Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Chase Center.
The Boston Celtics need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Boston Celtics are averaging 111.6 points on 47.3 percent shooting and allowing 109.2 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Jaylen Brown is averaging 27.1 points and 3.5 assists while Jayson Tatum is averaging 26.8 points and seven rebounds. Kemba Walker is the third double-digit scorer and Marcus Smart is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Boston Celtics are shooting 37.7 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The Boston Celtics are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game.
The Golden State Warriors look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 112.3 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.3 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 27.7 points and 6.1 assists while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 17.9 points and 4.9 rebounds. James Wiseman is the third double-digit scorer and Kelly Oubre Jr. is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.2 rebounds per game.
The Celtics are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 5-2-1 in Celtics last 8 Tuesday games. The under is 5-2 in Warriors last 7 games as an underdog. The Celtics are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State and 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Golden State Warriors are a tough team to figure out, as one night they look like a playoff team in the West, the next night they're getting blasted by 20 points. The Boston Celtics just beat the Warriors a couple days ago by 15 points and they're the deeper, more talented team. It's just easier to trust the Celtics when they're healthy. The Warriors rely way too much on Curry to get the job done. The Celtics are winning their last five games by an average of 7.4 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field. I'll lay the bucket with the road team.
