Boston comes into this game 28-26 overall this season after winning their last 3 games in a row and 7 of their last 10 matchups, but just 11-16 on the road. On Sunday, the Celtics traveled to Denver and got a huge 105-87 victory where they held the Nuggets to just 36% from the field and 23% from 3-point land. Jayson Tatum had a monster game, scoring 28 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. In the last two weeks, Marcus Smart has stepped it up, scoring an average of 15 points per game.

Boston is 4-2 against the spread in their last 6 games and the total has gone under in 8 of the Celtics last 9 games.
Portland currently sits in the sixth spot in the Western Conference after losing four of their past six games and now 31-22 overall and 16-11 at home this season.
On Sunday they got the 107-98 loss to the Miami Heat. The recipe for the Blazers loss was them turning the ball over 17 times and only hitting 11 of their 35 attempts from 3-point land. Kanter replaced Nurkic right before half due to injury but ending up returning to the game, so he should be good to go in this matchup, but most likely will on a minutes restriction.
The team looked extremely out of wack and frustrated after their last loss and are hungry to get a win and get back on track to their winning ways. Lillard had 30 points and 16 assists in the one game he played against the Celtics last season.
At home this season, the Trail Blazers have the twelfth ranked offense that scores an average of 114 points per game, but their defensive struggles continue and as a team they are giving up an average of 113.8 point per game.
