The Boston Celtics get as good of a chance to pick up a win as they could ask for, as they host the Houston Rockets at the TD Garden on Friday.
Yes, the Houston Rockets come into this game with an awful 13 and 34 record, but they have been a bit more competitive with Christian Wood back in the mix, but will that be enough to pick up a road win over the Celtics?
The Rockets did lose their last game against Brooklyn by 12 points, but if Joe Harris did not shoot the lights out that game would have been way closer and they could have even had a chance to win that game.
It was not one single player in that game that did the heavy lifting either, as 6 of their players including two of them from off of the bench scored double digit points, so that is a good sign for the Rockets.
Christian Wood’s best work was done on the defensive side of things in that game as he only scored 14 points, but he did register 2 steals and 3 blocks which went a long way to keeping that last game close.
The Celtics have lost back to back games against two of the NBA’s brightest stars, as they come in here off the back of losses against the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans. That probably makes Jayson Tatum want to bounce back here, but the Celtics have bigger problems here in the form of their record, as they are in serious danger of missing out on the playoffs which is crazy for a team who was touted as a dark horse to win the conference during the preseason.
The engine of this team’s offense is still Jayson Tatum and increasingly Jaylen Brown with these two guys combining for nearly 50 points per game, but they clearly have not had enough help thus far this year and they have been disappointing this year as a result.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Rockets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
- Celtics are 7-15 ATS in their last 22 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Celtics are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
- Celtics are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
- Celtics are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games.
Free Houston Rockets vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
The Rockets last game gives me quite a bit of hope that they can come in here and earn a cover or even the straight up win over the Celtics who have not impressed as of late. I really do not see a huge reason why the Celtics will just turn things around here, as it would not surprise me if the Celtics overlook the Rockets a bit.
That would be a mistake though, as the Rockets still have a decent amount of talent and this team really is completely different with Christian Wood and I firmly believe his injury was the catalyst to that massive losing streak the Rockets went on throughout the middle of the season.
