NBA Betting Total:
The Phoenix Suns have been awesome this year, but they will have their hands full this Thursday, as they take on the Boston Celtics at TD Garden Arena in Boston.
The Suns have been good this year…seriously good, as they have picked up victories in 13 of their last 15 games and amazingly still, nobody is talking about them as legitimate contenders in the West.
There are question marks about the Lakers, the Clippers and even the Jazz and so the disrespect the Suns have been getting is a bit baffling to me, as the West looks wide open this year even though I would admit the Lakers are rightful favorites.
They have been in some tight games lately however, as they are not getting the job done by blowing their opponents out and their last game shows that, as they beat the 76ers by 3 points. They did allow Embiid to have a solid game on the interior, but Phoenix just had so many ways to hit the 76ers with 5 of their players getting over 10 points.
The Boston Celtics are another team who have been rolling as of late, as their last game was a loss which snapped an impressive 6 game winning streak which put themselves right back into playoff contention.
Their last game was a bit worrying though, as the Bulls do not have a ton to play for and are without their best player, so it was tough to see this Celtics team, who were rolling at that point, lose to that Bulls team.
Jayson Tatum recorded a triple double in that game against the Bulls, but he did have a really bad game and his inefficiency was one of the main reasons his team lost, as he shot just 3 of 17 from the field in that game.
I would expect Tatum to bounce back here though, as the guy has been awesome this year and was a major catalyst for that winning streak and on the season he has been averaging nearly 26 points and I see him showing up here for such a marquee matchup.
Free Phoenix Suns vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
I think this game very well could turn into a shootout, as I see the Celtics coming out and really pushing the pace off of the back of that loss to the Chicago Bulls, as they need to show urgency given the precarious position they are in right now.
I also do not think we are going to see Tatum shoot 3 for 17 again and can see him having a big game alongside Jaylen Brown who has turned himself into a mighty impressive and efficient scorer of the basketball.
It is very important to keep an eye on the injury report here as well, as both of the Celtic’s superstars are listed on the injury report with both Tatum and Brown being up in the air in terms of their participation in this game. That would obviously have a detrimental effect on the total here, so keeping an eye on the news feed prior to tip-off is critical.
