Celtics Have Not Beaten Spurs Since 2011

Despite some fantastic seasons in recent memory, the Boston Celtics have simply been unable to find a way to defeat the San Antonio Spurs. The Celtics have lost 11 straight vs the Spurs with their last win against Gregg Popovich and company coming on March 31, 2011. Can the Celtics finally get the monkey off their back when they host the Spurs on Monday?

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against the Celtics.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Celtics’ last 9 games at home.
  • The Spurs are 1-3 SU in their last 4 games with no days off between games.

After opening the season going 4-0, the Spurs have lost their past two – including a 114-87 beating at the hands of the Orlando Magic. Those two games saw the Spurs shoot just 43.4 percent from the floor and a woeful 25 percent from beyond the arc. The one constant has been LaMarcus Aldridge, who is averaging 27.6 points and 9.0 rebounds this season while shouldering the load with Kawhi Leonard out of the lineup.

The Celtics are trending in the opposite direction, as Boston opened the season with two losses before rattling off four consecutive wins. Rookie Jayson Tatum has been shining in that span and becoming incredibly efficient, as he is averaging 17.3 points while shooting 55.3 percent during the Celtics’ winning streak.
