The Celtics are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Boston Celtics are going to get the benefit of the doubt here, but I'm not laying points with them on the end of a back to back, especially with them playing two subpar at best games. The Los Angeles Lakers have played their best ball over these last two weeks, and they're at their best at home, where they win by an average of 3.4 points. LeBron and AD are rested and will play. Give me the points with the Lakers.
