There are trade rumors to upgrade the roster and Minnesota sharpshooter Kevin Martin is the name that keeps popping up. Martin would provide the Celtics with a sense instant offense with his outside shooting. Boston ranks seventh in the league scoring the basketball. Defensively they allow opponents 100.4 points per contest. Point Guard Isaiah Thomas is the team leader in scoring and assists. Thomas is having an All-Star caliber season.
The Toronto Raptors are on a five-game winning streak. Toronto plays their next three games in the friendly confines of the Air Canada Center. Toronto will be without defensive specialist DeMarre Carroll, out with a knee injury. There is no timeline for his return. The team ranks fourth in the NBA defensively, giving up an average of 96.9 points per game. The backcourt combination of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan is as lethal as they come in the league. Center Jonas Valanciunas is the team leader in rebounds, and his backup Bismack Biyombo averages 1.5 shot blocks coming off of the bench. Head Coach Dwane Casey is tired of playing second-fiddle to Cleveland and Chicago in the Eastern Conference.
The Betting Odds Over The Total is 4-0 Boston last four on the road.
Toronto 8-1 Against The Spread in their last nine on Wednesday’s.
