Key Points to Consider
Momentum: Celtics are coming in with a ton of momentum following a 34-point win over the Brooklyn Nets. They’ve struggled overall, having lost four of their last seven, but the bubble is basically a new season of its own. We’ll keep an eye on Jayson Tatum, not for his play on offense, but his increased activity on defense (averaging 1.4 steals per).
Undefeated: The Raptors are proving how valuable chemistry is as they remain undefeated in the bubble. Pascal Siakam has led the way this season, averaging 23.3 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. His 1.0 blocks per and 0.9 steal per just adds to his versatility in what’s turning out to be one of the better two-way players the league has.
Betting Trend: Going back to the ‘regular’ season, Boston is 0-4-1 against the spread (ATS) vs teams with a record above .500.
Jayson Tatum is projected to lead Boston with 21 points on 45% shooting, along with 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.
Pascal Siakam is projected to lead Toronto with 22 points on 49% shooting, along with 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal.
