Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics (By: Khum)
Chicago Bulls - Boston Celtics
During the Celtics' struggles from a few weeks ago, they still smoked the Bulls. They beat them by 29.
Now Chicago has Markkanen back (he banged his elbow last night but he finished the game) yet if they look on the other side they will see a Boston team that started to look closer to what everybody expected from them for this season.
For the past 6 games the C's won in Atlanta by 19, lost by 9 in Dallas, against the new sensation Luka Doncic, won by 17 in New Orleans, blew the Cavs by by 33 points, won by 9 in Minnesota against red hot Wolves and blew the Knicks by 28 two days ago. So they seem to fire with all cilinders since coach Stevens changed the starting 5, inserting the two Marcus, morris and smart in the lineup. The offense started to click and the defense came closer to what they showed in the past season.
The Bulls grabbed a fine win last night, the first for their new coach, against a Oklahoma team playing weird (two nights after that game in Brooklyn where they were lame for 3 quarters only for George to explode in 4th and to surpass a 20 points deficit). Still, they are in a back to back situation and in their past 4 such occasions they lost ATS, usually in double digits.
All these being said, I think it's a good moment riding the green Celtics wave in order to cash against the spread.
Let's go green!
