Celtics open at -8.5 vs. Nets
Wed, Aug 5th 8:33am EDT
The Boston Celtics have lost two of their three games in the bubble, and will need to course correct to avoid falling out of third place. The Miami Heat are hot on their tail, but the Celtics have arguably the easiest remaining schedule in the league. Brooklyn is fresh off a truly shocking victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, in which the Nets, despite missing every single rotation player, pulled off the victory. Caris LeVert, Joe Harris, and Jarrett Allen may all be back for tonight's contest as the Nets look to make it three in a row. With that being said, Brooklyn may prefer eighth place after winning the season series against the Bucks. Boston won two of the three meetings against Brooklyn this season. Brooklyn went 2-1 ATS against Boston this season.
