This matchup features the Oklahoma City Thunder out of the Western Conference and the Boston Celtics out of the Eastern Conference.
This will be the second and final meeting between these two teams this season. Boston won the first meeting way back in October of 2018 by a score of 101-95. They will now be looking for a season sweep in a game that will be played hours before the Super Bowl.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder are sitting strong in the West as they come into this game 3rd in the conference. They are also on a seven game winning streak and will look to avoid a season sweep to Boston. The Thunder are certainly still in contention to move up in the standings so look for them to have a strong showing in Boston.
As per usual, Paul George and Russell Westbrook are dominating and lead the Thunder in several offensive categories. Paul George is the leading scorer for the Thunder and is averaging 27.6 points per game. Westbrook is averaging 21.5 points per game, 10.9 rebounds per game and 10.9 assists per game. Furthermore, the Thunder have three other players averaging double figures.
With all that being said their offense is 5th best in the league since they are averaging 114.5 points per game. They are also the 3rd best rebounding team in the NBA an average 48.1 boards per game. Look for Westbrook and George to lead the way for the Thunder.
The Thunder also play tremendous defense as they allow just 109.3 points per game. This is 12th best in the league. They allow opponents to shoot 45.6% from the field and 34.5% from the three point line. Look for the Thunder to shutdown Irving and force another Boston to step up.
The Celtics are in 4th place in the East and enter this game on a three game winning streak. They will be looking for another win just a few hours before the Patriots play in Super Bowl LIII. If both teams can win, it will be a crazy night in the streets of Boston.
The Celtics are led by Kyrie Irving, who is averaging 23.6 points per game. As a team the Celtics average 112.4 points per game, which is 12th in the league this season. They are 5th best at shooting the three, with 36.9% and 4th in the league in free throw shooting, coming in at 80.8%. For the Celtics to win, someone other than Kyrie will need to step up and have a productive game.
A lot of the Celtics success this year has come from their ability to shut teams down. They are allowing just 105.5 points per game, which is 3rd in the NBA. Teams are only shooting 44% from the field, which is 2nd best and 33.5% from the three point line, which is also 2nd best. The Celtics must shut down either Westbrook or George if they want to secure the season sweep.
