Warriors-Celtics is Game of the Year Material

The Golden State Warriors have been the team of the present in the Western Conference for quite some time, but Dubs head coach Steve Kerr profoundly called the Boston Celtics the “team of the future in the East” as his team prepared to do battle with the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference. The Celts put a fantastic 13-game winning streak on the line when they host the best of the West on Thursday.

MyBookie opened the Warriors as 7-point road favorites with a total of 215.5.

  • The Warriors are 6-2 SU in their last eight games against the Celtics.
  • The Warriors are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games with two days off between games.
  • The Celtics are 11-0 SU and 10-0-1 ATS in their last 11 games with one day off between games.

While both teams have been fantastic when it comes to straight-up records, the Celtics have been the much better wager. At 12-2-1 ATS, the C’s easily pace the Association in games covered while the Warriors are in the middle of the pack at 7-7 ATS.

Boston owns the best defense in the NBA at 94.5 points allowed per game and will be going up against the league’s best offense. The Warriors, who are averaging 119.6 points per game, are quietly riding a seven-game winning streak heading into this one. Star point guard Stephen Curry sat out Monday’s 110-100 win over the Orlando Magic with a thigh contusion but is probable to return when the Warriors kick off a four-game road trip tonight.

Kyrie Irving is also playing with an injury but is still getting the job done despite being hampered by a facial fracture. The Duke product sat out Sunday’s win over the Toronto Raptors but returned Tuesday and played with a mask in Boston’s 109-102 victory over Brooklyn. Irving is expected to wear the mask again vs the Dubs.

When the Warriors hit the road, high-scoring affairs are the story. In Golden State’s last 11 away from home, the OVER is 9-2.
