The Denver Nuggets and Boston Celtics meet Friday in NBA action at the TD Garden. The Denver Nuggets look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Boston Celtics look to build on their six-game winning streak.
The Denver Nuggets are averaging 109.7 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 107.6 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 25.8 points and 13.6 rebounds, while Will Barton is averaging 15.6 points and 5 rebounds. Aaron Gordon is the third double-digit scorer and Monte Morris is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Denver Nuggets are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game.
The Boston Celtics are averaging 108.4 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 103.8 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Jayson Tatum is averaging 25.5 points and 8.4 rebounds, while Jaylen Brown is averaging 23.9 points and 3.2 assists.

The Boston Celtics are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.6 rebounds per game.
The Nuggets are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Celtics are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The over is 10-4-1 in Nuggets last 15 overall. The under is 7-2 in Celtics last 9 overall. The Nuggets are 5-13-1 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Boston and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Denver Nuggets in the underdog role is attractive, but they are 12-16-1 against the spread on the road, and I'm not sure if I can step in front of the Celtics right now. The Boston Celtics are playing their best ball of the season, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 22.6 points while allowing 37.6 percent shooting from the field. The Celtics are on fire right now. This line is reasonable. Give me the Celtics and the chalk.
