Two of the best teams in basketball will face off this Wednesday in an inter-conference showdown as the Boston Celtics head out west to take on the Golden State Warriors.
This may be the most interesting game of the week, and both teams should be on top of their games.
Boston has faced some surprising struggles during their current five-game road trip. They have lost two in a row, including a 116-102 loss at the Clippers on Monday. Boston is still holding onto 2nd place in the East.
Golden State has bounced back with two straight wins following two straight losses. They pulled out a relatively close victory at Atlanta on Monday, winning 119-111.
The Warriors are still in 1st place in the Western Conference.
Boston has not looked like the same team since the All Star break.
They have gone 3-3 since that time, and their schedule is not getting any easier. After they lost handily at Los Angeles (Clippers) on Monday, Isaiah Thomas criticized some of the coaching decisions, and of course the media has jumped on that.
Before the Clippers lost, the Celtics lost a shocker to the last place Phoenix Suns 109-106. Despite their struggles, they are still in 2nd place in the East. However, they need to get back on track to hold off the Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards.
The Celtics have the 9th best scoring offense in the league, averaging 107.9 points per game. They rank 27th in rebounding with 41.5 but are 3rd in assists with 24.9 per contest. Boston ranks 16th in scoring defense, allowing 105.6 points per game.
Isaiah Thomas leads the way for the Celtics with 29.5 points and 6.2 assists per game.
Avery Bradley adds 17.1 points and 6.4 rebounds, and Al Horford contributes 14 points, 6.6 rebounds and a career-high 4.9 assists a night.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors seemed to show a kink in the armor last week, losing two consecutive games to the Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls.
Even more troubling, they lost Kevin Durant to an injury in the 1st quarter of the Washington game.
The Warriors rebounded from the two losses by reeling off two straight wins. They won 112-105 at New York on Sunday and won 119-111 at Atlanta the following night. This will be their first home game since Feb. 25th.
The Warriors continue to lead the league in scoring, averaging 117.5 points per game. Golden State ranks 7th in rebounding with 44.5 and 1st in assists with 30.7 per contest.
They allow 105.4 points per game, which ranks 14th in the league.
Without Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry leads the Warriors in scoring with 24.9 points as well as 6.3 assists per game.
Klay Thompson adds 21.8 points, and Draymond Green contributes 10.3 points, 8.1 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 2.1 steals a night.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
Boston is going to be highly motivated coming into this one. They have lost two in a row and had to deal with the chatter after Isaiah Thomas’s comments.
The Warriors have also struggled in their first home game after a long road trip, and this one will be against a very good opponent.
