Boston-Celtics
VS
Portland
The Portland TrailBlazers are the hottest team in the NBA right now, and have marched on to a 6 game winning 6 straight games, but are still 1-2 away from home, and will be aiming to put that record straight as they take on the struggling Boston Celtics at the Garden.

 

The only win for the Blazers came so far against Denver where they blasted them for 130 points; and with the Boston Celtics leaking over 108 points per game, in 28th spot in the NBA; the Blazers will feel quite confident against this struggling bunch. LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard have shouldered most of the responsibility for this team scoring 21 points a piece in their outings. They both lead in their respective categories of rebounding and assists as well, which shows you the importance placed on them in outings. But what does the Blazers a world of good is the great supporting cast that they have around them with the likes of Batum, Matthews, Lopez, Kaman, Blake, Robinson all contributing at various stages of the game, and any of them could replace the responsibility on a given night to contribute to this teams success. What the Blazers have specifically worked on is improving their defense, keeping their opponents to 95 points per game and thus winning by a differential of 9.2 points.

 

The Boston Celtics do not know what defense means, and thus have to rely on out-scoring their opponents on a given night, which has not done soo well. They have lost to the good teams like Houston, Dallas, Toronto, Cleveland and Phoenix by close margins then people expect. Primarily because when you have a few good players like Rondo and Green, they are motivating the team to do better and turn up for the bigger games, especially in front of their home crowd.

 

Due to Boston's decent form against the bigger teams, I have taken 2 points under the market line as some insurance policy to ensure this spread lands.
