Saturday, January 26 finds the Golden State Warriors facing the. Boston Celtics as they meet for the first time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Thursday, the Warriors beat the Wizards while the Celtics last played Wednesday in a win over the Cavaliers.
Last season, the teams split their series. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Warriors in 202 of their 338 matches.
Golden State Warriors
With DeMarcus Cousins back on the court the Warriors boast five All-Star starters and are looking like it. If there was ever any question on how Cousins would fit the Warriors it’s been answered quickly and definitively — they are better.
Watching Golden State versus Washington it appeared the Warriors were in second gear practicing until they were ready to close the game and get the win. Stephen Curry led the way with 38 points, Kevin Durant scored 21 and Cousins added 17.
Jonas Jerebko (personal) will be away from the team until next week some time. Damian Jones (surgery to repair a torn left pectoral muscle) is expected out for the remainder of the season.
Kyrie Irving didn’t play versus his former Cavaliers this week so should be well rested and ready for this game versus Golden State.
Even without Irving the Celtics easily defeated Cleveland with Terry Rozier (26) leading the way and was joined by five teammates who all scored in double digits.
The Celtics have slowly figured out their chemistry and improved through the first half of the season. They rank 10th on offense and fifth defensively.
Their schedule gets progressively harder in the second half so Boston’s challenge will be to continue to grow despite the stronger opponents.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Golden State is on a nine-game win streak while the Celtics have won five in a row. The Warriors don’t take many in season games too seriously but this match may be an exception. This because many pundits are earmarking these teams as the expected finals matchup.

As enticing as the small spread is I’m recalling the last time Golden State played at TD Garden and the refs allowed Boston to play old school defense throughout the entire game. Boston went on to win that match 92-88.
If it’s a repeat of that situation it would afford Boston a better opportunity to stay close and keep the score low. Just not enough for me to sway off the Warriors.
