Boston Celtics 25-11 (20-14-2 ATS)

The Boston Celtics were probably the most hottest team in the league as they had won eight of nine, however they’re out of nowhere hoping to snap a three-game slip in the wake of tumbling to the 76res in a 109-98 road loss on Thursday. Kemba Walker has been unshakable for the Celtics all season and he demonstrated it again as he drove the route with 26 points on 10 of 20 shooting, Marcus Smart furnished the flash off the seat with five 3-pointers on his approach to 24 points while Jayson Tatum contributed with 15 points, 10 rebounds and four assists.

Jaylen Brown shot only two of 12 to complete with six points while Gordon Hayward scored only 8 points as the Celtics failed for only 18 points in the final quarter.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Boston Celtics Prediction

The Pelicans will be without Holiday in their Friday matchup and his status is unsure for this game. New Orleans is surrendering about 117 points per game, that positions 28th. Boston is loaded with ability and will have the option to uncover the Pelicans defense. Boston has the second best scoring defense, that should restrict the harmed Pelicans.

Last score prediction, Boston could win and cover, -8.5.
