The San Antonio Spurs management have gotten the most out of this team, and they now find themselves closing in on a playoff spot, but if they want to make it to the postseason every game will matter down the stretch including this one against the Celtics who will not make things easy on them.
San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs have just had a big loss though, as they lost Derrick White due to an ankle injury and he was averaging over 15 points per game, so that is a very consequential loss to this team.
That will put a lot more of the onus to run this offense on Dejounte Murray who is also averaging over 15 points per game and has also shown that he can take over games, as he has clearly taken a step forward in his development this year.
At the end of the day though, this offense runs through DeMar DeRozan who has not missed a step this year scoring the ball efficiently and averaging well over 20 a game, but he has also picked up a bit in terms of his distribution of the basketball almost averaging 8 assists per game.
The Spurs are coming off of a tight loss against the Miami Heat who bested them by 5 points with that loss mostly coming down to the difference in rebounding, as the Heat were able to pick up an extra 8 boards.
The Celtics were not all that impressive earlier in the year, but if they can get healthy before the playoffs they feel like a team that a lot of teams would not like to play, as they can play with just about anyone if they bring their A-game.
The Boston Celtics will be without Marcus Smart for this game though, as he has been suspended by the league for using threatening language towards an official and that is a big loss for them, as Smart was having a great season.
The Celtics will only go as far as their young duo will carry them though, as Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have both been incredible with Brown coming on strong this year and they now average over 50 points per game between the two of them.
The Celtics last game was a solid 9 point win over the Charlotte Hornets where Jaylen Brown showed up in a big way putting up 38 points on 13 of 23 shooting which just narrowly beat his teammate Jayson Tatum who chipped in with 35 of his own as the two young studs essentially carried the Celtics to victory.
Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
I do feel like the Boston Celtics are going in the right direction and think they could make some waves in the playoffs, so I am going to take them to cover here as a home favorite, as I also do not think the Spurs are in that great a form right now and the loss of Derrick White certainly hurts them.
