Los Angeles Clippers vs Boston Celtics – NBA : The Boston Celtics will visit the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center on Tuesday night
The last 4 matches have marked their worst streak of Boston’s season so far. Despite still being in 1st place of the Eastern Conference, the Celtics have lost 4 consecutive matches since the return of a prolonged trip to London where they faced the 76ers.
More recently, the Celtics have lost to the Lakers at the Staples Center on Monday night, by a score of 108-107. While the team started off strong, holding off LA to only 15 points on the 1st quarter, their defence vanished at the end of the game.
The same thing happened on their previous loss against Orlando, where the Magic have had 90 points in 3 quarters. The recent downfall of Jayson Tatum was a contributing factor on Boston’s struggles.
Tatum averages only 10 points per match, shooting 40.4% from the field on their last few matches.
The MVP candidate Kyrie Irving looks as shiny as ever. Irving scored 40 points against the Magic and another 33 on their last match against the Lakers.
The Clippers might have some extra motivation, like Lou Williams joked about on Twitter on Tuesday, after not being nominated to the All-Star Game. Williams is having a great season so far, he that is averaging 23.3 points per game this season.
Los Angeles Clippers vs Boston Celtics – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the last 28 matches, Williams is averaging 26.9 points and took LA to a 18-10 record, despite the main injuries.
They will certainly be a factor for LA again this Wednesday, so I believe that the Celtics will win and get back on the winning track.
