Kemba Walker is the third double-digit scorer and Marcus Smart is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Boston Celtics are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75.4 percent from the free throw line. The Boston Celtics are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look to stay hot after winning 15 of their last 16 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 114.3 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 105.7 points on 43.8 percent shooting.

The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Jazz are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Celtics last 7 overall. The over is 8-3 in Jazz last 11 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Even with a couple of injuries, the Boston Celtics are still a really good team that shouldn't be slept on or underestimated. However, as I've said many times in the past, the Jazz are a team I'll continue to blindly back until this historic run comes to an end. The Utah Jazz are winning and covering every time they take the court. You just keep following the money until the tickets stop cashing. So, give me the Jazz and the reasonable number.
