Boston Celtics over Los Angeles Lakers: Bost has underperformed for most of the regular season. However there are signs they are starting to come together for the playoffs. When this team is focused and plays together they are very good. On Feb 7 Lal went into Bost and won 129-128. Bost should not be lacking motivation tonight. Irving is expected to go tonight and even if he does not this is still a bet. Lal are 2-8 s/u in their last 10 all but solidifying there will be no playoffs for them. Lal are a mess. James will go on a minute’s restriction. Kuzma, Stephenson, Chandler, and Ingram are all beat up even if some of them do dress. If Lal do fall behind where will the motivation come from to fight? I have this game at 8.5 giving us excellent value.
