Celtics Have Dropped 10 in a Row to the Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs posted their best offensive performance since March 28, 2014 in their last game – a 130-101 thumping of the lowly Brooklyn Nets – and will be seeking to keep the momentum going versus the Boston Celtics tonight. Sportsbooks opened the Spurs as 7.5-point home chalk with a total of 201.5.

  • The Celtics are 6-2 SU and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games on the road.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Spurs announced power forward LaMarcus Aldridge will sit out of the contest for a rest day. In light of the news, the Spurs moved from 7.5-point faves to -6 at most shops.

This series been incredibly lopsided in past years, as the Celtics have dropped 10 straight to their Western Conference foe. The absence of star point guard Isaiah Thomas has impacted the Celts, as Boston has lost three of four without the 27-year-old in the fold. Marcus Smart has done an admirable job filling the void, but the offense simply hasn’t been the same without Thomas.

Kawhi Leonard’s ascent to becoming the best two-way player in the league over the last few seasons has been nothing short of spectacular, and the quiet superstar is doing a fine job in 2016-17. Leonard is averaging 25.8 points while shooting 53.3 percent in five games this month and has just six turnovers in 166 total minutes during that stretch.
