Why the Celtics can cover

It will be shorthanded in this one, but Boston does have the best overall profile in the NBA this season. Not only do the Celtics have the best record (41-16) and net rating (+6.3) in the league over the full-season sample, but they also lead the NBA with a 18-9 road record. The Celtics outscore opponents by 3.1 points per 100 possessions away from TD Garden and also have a stellar +11.8 net rating so far in the month of February.The Celtics are among the most efficient teams in the NBA, averaging roughly 1.17 points per possession. They also lead the league in 3-pointers made (15.8 per game) and free throw accuracy (82.7%). With an average of 26.3 assists per game and only 13.5 turnovers per game, Boston effectively distributes the ball. Milwaukee has a very good defence, but they commit the most turnovers (12.1 per game), which might give the Celtics more freedom and confidence to play.

Why the Bucks can cover

With their 119-106 victory over the Clippers last Friday, Milwaukee increased its winning run to 10 games while easily covering the 2-point spread. Giannis Antetokounmpo, a star forward, led his club to its fourth straight victory against the spread with 35 points, eight rebounds, and six assists. With a scoring average of 32.4 points and 12.3 rebounds per game, Antetokounmpo is third in the NBA.
