Boston Celtics vs Oklahoma City Thunder: Tonight, in Boston we will have a duel between two great teams of this NBA.
The Celtics that have one of the best records so far this season host the Oklahoma City Thunder that are also making a good campaign and that have been improving on this final stretch of the regular season.
The Celtics had been leading their conference for some time now.
However, with some slip-ups recently, they ended up losing their first place to the Toronto Raptors and then seeing their rivals open up a certain advantage.
The Celtics have a record of 47 wins and 23 losses, occupying the 2nd place of the Eastern Conference. This is a team that I enjoy watching in action, very organized and presenting a good defence and a very efficient attack.
Their roster is well-qualified overall, but I highlight Kyrie Irving as their main player.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are coming off a streak of 6 consecutive victories, and that shows this team’s great potential, with players like Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony.
Despite not being favourites to winning the NBA title, this team might make life hard for any team that has to face them on the play-offs.
Right now, the Oklahoma City Thunder sit in 4th place of their conference, with a record of 43 wins and 29 losses and they are looking to ensure their spot in the play-offs as soon as possible.
Boston Celtics vs Oklahoma City Thunder – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On this duel, I believe that the Thunder will be able to get the win, because the team led by Russell Westbrook has been playing great basketball lately and they are looking forward to ensuring their spot on the play-offs, getting on court with a lot of desire to win.
The hosts Boston Celtics also shouldn’t lack desire. However, the problem is the big list of important absences that the team has for tonight, amongst them being Irving, Brown and Smart.
Therefore, with all these problems for the Celtics, I think the Thunder will win, especially because they are in full strength.
