Boston Celtics vs Toronto Raptors Preview
I’m going with the zig-zag theory here and predicting Toronto to bounce back from a heavy defeat in game 1.
This is essentially a must-win game for the Raptors as 0-2 would be incredibly tough to come back from in this series.
I thought a lot of shooting luck went against them last time out, something which is likely to revert back to the mean here.
They’re usually an excellent 3-point shooting team, but shot just 25% on 40 attempts, including some very good looks.
Boston were an unsustainably good 43.6% from 3, including 5-9 from the usually streaky Marcus Smart.
I consider Nick Nurse to be the best coach in the NBA at this point and would expect some good adjustments that help them get off to a fast start here.
The Celtics have an incredibly weak bench and will likely find it difficult to bounce back if they go down early.
The line has shifted a point in Toronto’s favour after game 1 and I’m backing them for the win and cover here.
