The Boston Celtics earned their 36th win of the season last outing after they beat the Dallas Mavericks 111-98, while out in Chicago the Bulls also came away victors, after they beat the Toronto Raptors 105-94.
The Boston Celtics just totally dominated the Dallas Mavericks in their last outing. Boston outplayed them in every quarter except for one, and that was the reason why they were able to pull away ahead with the win.
But defense was what ultimately played the most vital part in them coming away victors. They held the Mavs to 33.3% shooting from behind the arc, and that was the reason why Boston was able to get the upper hand.
It also helped some that Isaiah Thomas was on fire. The Celtics point guard went off for 29 points and 8 assists, as the Mavericks had no answer to containing him all game.
However, next outing he needs to do the same thing in order to ensure the Celtics come away with another win.
Chicago is an inconsistent team, so if Boston can come out of the gates and take an early lead, they’ll have a bigger shot at earning the “W”. But if they don’t’ this is going to be a long night for them.
The Chicago Bulls just played outstanding against the Toronto Raptors. They led from start to finish, and they didn’t allow the Raptors runs to dictate the way that they were going to play.
Chicago outscored them in almost every quarter, and that was why they were able to pull away ahead with the win. However, despite the victory Jimmy Butler wasn’t really able to get things going offensively.
He shot just 2-10 from the field, but the rest of the rest of the team was able to pickup the slack for him. As a unit the Bulls shot 47.9% from the field, and a stellar 41.2% from deep.
But next outing Butler is going to need to get going in order for the Bulls to beat Boston. The Celtics are a stacked team that plays a high pace brand of basketball.
So in order for the Bulls to win they’re going to have to match the Celtics high power offense. That means Jimmy Butler needs to get going if Chicago hopes to keep up with them.
