San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have not had all that great of a year. Frankly, they have been pretty disappointing.
This is a team that has lost four games in a row. Of course, they will look to end that streak, but that will not be easy when they face a team that is better than them.
Throughout the course of the season, this team has shown glimpses of being a good team, but they have not done it on a consistent enough level. They will have to improve in that area or they will continue to be a middling squad.
Sure, this team has some talented players on their roster, but they do not have enough talent to compete with the top dogs. They are going to have to improve their roster if they wish to be better than they currently are.
San Antonio lost to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday by a score of 129-104. It will not get any easier for them when they hit the road to face this Celtics team.
Listen, I get that Toronto is a decent team, but you should not be allowing that many points to them. In the modern NBA, if you allow close to 130 points in a game, you do not deserve to win.
Based on the lofty standards that were given to them at the beginning of the year, the Celtics have not lived up to them at all. Truthfully, I am not sure how much better they will get as the year goes on.
Boston comes into this game with a record of 18-19, which puts them in 10th place in the Eastern Conference. That kind of play is not going to cut it when you play in a city that expects you to win titles.
One thing about this squad that is frustrating is the fact that they have talent. It is not as if they have nobody on their team. Based on the players they have on their roster, their record ought to be an awful lot better than what it presently is.
This squad beat the Orlando Magic on Sunday by a score of 116-111. I am sure they would not have liked it to be that close against one of the worst teams in basketball, but they will take any win they can get.
Jaylen Brown absolutely went off in the win over Orlando, as he exploded for 50 points. Injuries have hurt him so far this year, but when he is on the court, he is a very dangerous player and he will only get better as he gets deeper in his career.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Boston Celtics NBA Analysis:
For as bad of a loss as the Spurs had to the Raptors on Tuesday, they have to flush it. With that said, it will be no easy task on the second night of a back-to-back.
No matter the teams or the year, it just seems like San Antonio has success when they go against Boston. They already beat them once this year and they will look to make it a second on Wednesday.
Although there is no official word yet, it looks like there is a potential that Jayson Tatum returns to the Boston lineup for this game. If the C’s are going to go anywhere this year, they are going to need him in that lineup.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs ATS
Yes, I know the Spurs just played a stinker in Toronto, but I do feel they can be better in this one. I look for them to make the necessary adjustments and be more competitive.
When it comes to covering spreads against the Spurs, the Celtics have not been good in that category and I look for that trend to continue in this one. For me, the 7.5 is too high to lay with a team that I do not trust all that much.
