Boston Celtics's Latest Performance :
The Celtics are coming off a convincing win against the Bucks. Kyrie followed up his season-high 31 points with a 28 point effort shooting six threes. He now has back-to-back dominant performances and looks to be rounding into form as he finds himself in the Celtics offense. The Celtics made a franchise-record 24 3-pointers along the way, one short of the NBA record set by the Cleveland Cavaliers last season. Six different players had multiple 3-pointers made for the Celtics, including all five starters. Gordon Hayward scored 18 points (6-of-11 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with four rebounds in 27 minutes which was a career high. He is slowly getting back into form but it was good to see him have a performance like this in front of the home crowd. The Celtics are now on a three-game winning streak as they get ready for the Pacers on Saturday.
Indiana Pacers 's Latest Performance :
The Pacers are coming off a come back win against the Knicks. Victor Oladipo scored 24 points with six rebounds, one assist, one block, two steals, and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes. He has found his offensive rhythm with 20-plus points in every game since his 16-point opener, and he continues to make an impact in the fourth scoring. Domantas Sabonis made all 12 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line to match his career-high 30 points and added nine rounds in just 21 mins of action. He is playing well alongside Turner if he keeps up his impressive offensive performance he should be granted with starting position it will be interesting to see how he matches up with the Celtics big in this game. If he continues to have the hot hand look for Oladipo to give them the rock. Oladipo will have a chance to go up against Kyrie who is also on a hot streak of himself.

Against The Spread Selection: Boston Celtics
My reason for the pick :
The Boston Celtics will keep on rolling as they will take down the Pacers on the road for their 4th straight win this season. Kyrie is starting to look like himself as he will lead the Celtics in scoring for the third straight game. For the Pacers, it will be hard for them to cover the terrific three-point shooting of the Celtics. Once this deep Celtics team gets it going from range it is hard for anyone to stop them. Victor Oladipo will have a great game but his efforts won’t be enough to overcome the Celtics.
