Will Injuries Catch Up To Red-Hot Celtics?

It seemed as though the Boston Celtics would see their winning streak evaporate on Friday but the squad came roaring back from an 18-point deficit to extend their streak to 11. Bettors have been cashing in on the Celtics in that span, as the team is 9-1-1 ATS over their past 11. That being said, the Celtics host the Toronto Raptors Sunday – a squad that has covered in the past four between the teams.

Shark Bites
  • Al Horford – who has missed the past 2 games – is officially probable for the game.
  • The Raptors are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs the Celtics.
  • The OVER is 9-4 in the Celtics last 13 games at home.

Despite the win Friday, the team also lost Kyrie Irving. The point guard is officially doubtful for this game after suffering a facial fracture in their most recent outing. That likely means increased minutes for backup Shane Larkin who managed to score 16 points after Irving was taken off the floor vs the Hornets.

The Raptors enter this showdown winning three of their past four while averaging 111.5 points per game in that span. Of course, DeMar DeRozan has been the focal point of the offense, as the Compton native is averaging 30 ppg while shooting 45.1 percent from the floor.
