Celtics Have Dropped 11 of 12 vs San Antonio

Something has to give in Friday’s slate of NBA action as the best road team in the Eastern Conference collides with the top home team in the Western Conference when the Boston Celtics travel to the Lone Star State to renew acquaintances with the San Antonio Spurs.

Xbet opened the Spurs as slight 2-point home favorites with a total of 197.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in eight of the Celtics’ last 10 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Celtics’ last four games against the Spurs.
  • The Celtics are 9-1 SU and ATS in their last 10 games against teams with winning records.

San Antonio improved to 12-2 SU at AT&T Center with a 117-105 triumph over the Miami Heat on Wednesday, and tonight’s contest is the final one of a three-game homestand. Tonight’s game is a huge one on the schedule, but Spurs fans will be more interested in Saturday’s matchup at Phoenix. Reports are indicating Kawhi Leonard, who hasn’t played in 2017-18 due to a quadriceps injury, could make his season debut vs the Suns.

Despite playing without starting guard Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris, Boston rallied from a 10-point deficit at the half to beat the Dallas Mavericks 97-90 at home on Wednesday. In light of the win, the Celtics improved to a perfect 8-0 SU vs the West this year. Kyrie Irving once again paced the Celtics offense thanks to 23 points on 10-of-18 shooting.

The Celtics have an awful track record against the Spurs, as Boston has dropped 11 of its last 12 vs San Antonio.
