The Celtics appear to have entered crisis mode here, having dropped below .500 on the season. I’m backing Brad Stevens to turn things around, starting with a win and cover at home against Indiana.
Boston are still one of the better home sides in the NBA, going 8-5 straight up and an impressive 9-4 ATS. They’ve dealt with a few key injuries of late, but Kemba Walker should be ready to go here after resting last time out.
I think they’ve got a favourable matchup here on the perimeter and we should see a big game from Tatum here. Indiana do have the edge on the interior, but I don’t think that’ll be enough to pull off the upset. Boston have performed very well against this Pacers side in recent years and I’m expecting more of the same here.
