NBA picks predictions for Toronto Raptors vs Boston Celtics
Toronto Raptors will play against Boston Celtics in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read NBA picks predictions. The game is on Saturday, December 28, at 7:00 PM ET and the place is TD Garden, Boston, Massachusetts.
Toronto Raptors 21-10 are 5th in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team from Canada lost its latest two matches in the league. First, they were beaten away from home against Indiana Pacers 115-120 after OT. Their latest clash was on Wednesday at home against their next opponent Boston Celtics and again they lost 102-118.
Before losing two matches in a row, Raptors got the most impressive victory in their history. They were losing from Dallas Mavericks with 30 points deficit in the 3rd quarter but managed to win that match 110-107. For only 24 minutes on the court, Chris Boucher scored 21 points for Toronto and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 18 points for this amazing comeback. Raptors won the 4th quarter against Mavericks 47-21.
Boston Celtics 22-7 are 2nd in the NBA Eastern Conference. Unlike his next opponent, the team of Brad Stevens is in 5 matches winning streak. In their last game, they beat Cleveland Cavaliers 129-117. Before that, they beat Raptors in Toronto 118-102. Jaylen Brown was the highest-scoring player for Boston with 30 points and Kemba Walker added 22.
The other three victories in that series are against Mavericks in Dallas 109-103 and at home against Detroit Pistons 114-93 and Charlotte Hornets 119-93. Celtics really seem like the second-best team in East as the most impressive are without doubt Milwaukee Bucks.
We already watch these two teams against each other a few days ago in Canada and Celtics beat them without trouble. This time they will play in Boston where Celtics are with 13 wins and only 1 lose. I don’t think that the guests will have any chance for a win in Massachusetts and that the team lead by Kemba Walker will get the victory and cover the spread.
