The Boston Celtics earned a huge win over the Los Angeles Clippers in their last outing, winning the game 107-102, while out in Sacramento the Kings weren’t as lucky coming away losers to the Chicago Bulls, with the final 112-107 for Chicago.
The Boston Celtics jumped on the Los Angeles Clippers right from the opening tip-off. They outscored L.A. 29-19 in the first quarter, and they just continued piling the points on them even after that.
However, Los Angeles gave them quiet a scare going on a huge run of their own in the fourth quarter.
They outplayed Boston 35-26 in the final frame, but Boston once again had an answer for their adversary, and his name was Isaiah Thomas. When Boston needed it most, Isaiah stepped up for them, torching the Clippers in the fourth period.
Once the Los Angeles Clippers started heating up, I.T. took it upon himself to keep the Celtics on top. He did a fantastic job finding openings in the lane, or getting his teammates the ball for open shots from behind the arc.
An that was what kept Boston ahead despite the Clippers best efforts.
But if they’re to prevent that from happening next outing, the Celtics need to do a better job playing for 48 minutes of action. After taking a huge lead, the Celtics started to slack a little bit, and that’s when L.A. starting going at them.
So they can’t allow that to happen again, so that means focus through the four quarters of play is going to be most important for them next game.
The Sacramento Kings just came out of the gates way too lackadaisical in this game, and the Chicago Bulls pounced one that early. In just the first quarter the Bulls outscored Sacramento 27-11.
And that terrible play to start the game put them in a huge hole that they had trouble digging themselves out of.
At one point in time the Bulls led by 27 points, but the Kings didn’t let that discourage them, and instead they just continued fighting back the rest of the second half.
Through the final two quarters the Kings outplayed Chicago 62-52, however the hole they’d dug themselves into earlier was just too much to overcome and the team ultimately fell behind because of it.
They had their chances in the final quarter, but they had trouble containing Dwyane Wade and Michael Carter-Williams.
The Kings just continuing allowing them to find opening to the basket, and because of that they weren’t able to take the lead and pull away ahead at any point.
But the good news is they learned what not to do going up against Boston. Sacramento can’t come out playing with little to no energy, so they’re going to need to come out and play with the same motor they display when closing out games.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Sacramento Kings do a great job competing for 46 minutes, but in the last two minutes of games their offense starts to stagnate. They just continue feeding Demarcus Cousins almost to a fault.
So because of that, I’ll pick Boston to come out on top in this matchup.
