This Thursday, December 29th we will enjoy an NBA show before the end of the year when the Boston Celtics welcome the Los Angeles Clippers. The game is scheduled for 7:30 PM EST at the TD Garden, this will be the Celtics’ chance to avenge that December 12th game.
Both teams are coming off wins in their most recent game, the Clippers beat Toronto 124-113 and the Celtics beat Houston 126-102.
The Celtics lead the Eastern Conference close behind the Bucks, they have the best offense averaging 118 points per game on 47% shooting from the field. The offense is led by Jayson Tatum with a staggering 31 points per game followed by Jaylen Brown with another 27. They have a lot of players that shoot well from the three point line, something they will have to take advantage of if they want to win. Defensively they are pretty solid, supporting the offense by allowing only 112 points per game.
The Clippers on the other hand are in fourth place in the Western Conference. Their offense averages 109 points per game and is led by Paul George with 23.7 per game, Kawhi Leonard with 16 and Norman Powell with another 15. They are also very good shooting from the three point line but not so good from the charity stripe, that would be their main disadvantage.
The defense is solid allowing only 108 points per game, the truth is that they play very well but they have to improve those shots to be a stronger team.
Both teams have good numbers, solid defenses and good shooters but the Celtics manage to concede more points per game and they play at home.
It will be a close game and very interesting to watch but I’m going with the Celtics.
