Boston Celtics vs Utah Jazz prediction

The Boston Celtics are on the end of a back to back and will play their fifth straight road game, so we could see a sluggish performance. However, the Celtics have been beating teams into the ground over the last month, so there's that. The Utah Jazz feel more and more like a team that's entered tank mode and is focused on getting more ping pong balls. The Jazz will also be without their best player in Markkanen due to a quadriceps injury. The Celtics beat the Jazz by 29 points back in January. Only one way to go here, and that's to side with the Celtics on the road.
