Boston Celtics

The Celts scored a good move and intend to beat the Milwaukee leader of the East. The team found that middle ground in their game, and all thanks to the professionalism of the head coach, who knows how to find an approach to each ward.

Boston has not lost for a long time, and in the last match showed the Cleveland class in the home arena. The hosts decided to act in an open, so the meeting turned out to be quite spectacular and productive (129-117). Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown worked “miracles” on the floor, although the level of the opponent allowed.

This season, the Celtics lost only once in their native walls, so the bookmakers unanimously gave the status of the favorite to the guys Brad Stevens.

Toronto Raptors

The Canadian team does not give up, although due to injuries of key performers, the quality of the game has noticeably decreased. Unfortunately, in the near future, “reptiles” will not be able to help Mark Gasol, Pascal Siacim, Norman Powell and Matt Thomas.

Recently, “Toronto” designed the first 30-point comeback in the NBA in ten years in a spectacular match against “Dallas” (110-107). It is unlikely that the “cowboys” were ready for this, so they left with nothing. This victory took away a lot of strength, because the next two matches, Nick Ners wards lost.

At first, the Raptors could not resist the pressure from Indiana (115-120), but in the previous meeting they lost to Boston (102-118), so it aims to take revenge, though now it’s away.
