These two teams last faced each other almost a year ago in a double overtime thriller, where Boston came out on top 141-133. This go around both teams have had major roster changes, but it still should be a very entertaining game.

Let’s get into this sports betting preview where Boston comes into this game only winning 4 of their last 10 games played. On Wednesday Night on the road they loss 116-111 to the Sacramento Kings. Jayson Tatum had an impressive game, leading the team with 27 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists, but unfortunately missed a wide open 3-pointer with just seconds left on the clock that would have tied the game and most likely brought it into overtime. Rookie Payton Pritchard is close to returning to play after suffering a right MCL, but we don’t expect him to get minutes in this matchup. Kemba Walker is listed as questionable and Marcus Smart is still out due to his calf injury.
