Boston continue their winning ways, and Jokic visiting them isn't sure to lead his team to a positive result tonight.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Boston is getting closer and closer to sixth place in the East
31 wins by 25 losses and they are as close as possible to Toronto, who have 31 wins and 23 losses, which means their chances of making it to the sixth spot are getting better and better.
Six straight wins means the Celtics aren't going to stop, especially since the team is doing so well with 18 wins in 28 home games. Boston won their last three home games and will try to extend that streak tonight.
Denver is hanging on for fifth place
The Nuggets are alternating streaks. Since January 24 they have won five matches in a row, then they had a three-game losing streak, and they approach this matchup with two wins.
Tonight, on the road, where Denver plays with a close record of 15 wins and 14 losses, Jokic will again try to pull his team and how much help he gets from the team will determine the outcome.
Injuries and suspensions
- Boston: Derrick White, Daniel Theis;
- Denver: Jamal Murray, Monte Morris, Austin Rivers, Vlatko Cancar.
Expert Betting Tips
These two teams are capable of putting together a productive encounter, and a fairly close one at that. Still, the home team looks more interesting as a winner, but Jokic is a serious counterweight in any encounter, so the visitors can avoid a big distance.
