Boston enters Wednesday night’s game with a 47-22 record and is second in the Eastern Conference standings. The Celtics are coming off a 111-109 loss to Houston and are 2-3 in their last five games. Boston is averaging 117.7 points per game this year. They are shooting 47.4% from the field and 37.7% from the 3-point range. Jayson Tatum leads the team in scoring and rebounds, averaging 30.3 and 8.9, respectively.
Minnesota is 35-34 on the year and is seventh in the Eastern Conference standings. The Timberwolves beat Atlanta 136-115 in their last game and are 3-2 in their previous five games. Anthony Edwards averages 24.9 points, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals per game. As a team, Minnesota is averaging 115.7 points per game this season. They are shooting 49.2% from the floor and 35.9% from behind the arc.
Boston has been dominant all year. The combination of Tatum and Brown is lethal. For Minnesota, Anthony Edwards has been a stud. The absence of KAT has hurt this team. Overall, I believe that Boston is the better team. They have been consistent all year and are primed to make a deep run come playoff time. I am rolling with the Celtics.
