Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics
The Celtics will welcome the Mavericks to TD Garden as they are coming off a win against the Wolves opened up their four-game homestand with a victory while the Mavericks picked up their 3rd road win of the season beating the Hornets. Game tips off at 8:00 PM ET.
Dallas Mavericks 's Latest Performance :
The Mavericks were able to pick up their third road win of the year by blowing out the Hornets. Dennis Smith had a great game in front of his hometown crowd as he finished the game with 18 points on 6-of-10 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs, three 3-pointers, seven assists. It is great to see him play well after struggling to find his shot in his first few games back. It will be interesting to see how he fares off against Roizer as the Mavs will be trying to win back-to-back road games for the first time this season. Luka Doncic had 18 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, and three 3-pointers in just 26 minutes on Wednesday, shooting 7-of-16 from. Dallas will head into Boston with everyone healthy and I expect Luka to go at Tatum in this game. Luka has surprised everyone in the league he is only 19 years of age and the sky is the limit for him.
Boston Celtics 's Latest Performance :
The Celtics are coming off an impressive home win against the Wolves as Hayward went off scoring 35 points off the bench. He took over Kyrie scoring responsibility who was out with an eye injury. Terry Rozier got the start in place of Irving and looked as comfortable as he has in a long time. Rozier opened the game 5-for-5 from the floor with 11 points in his first 9 minutes. He was noticeably patient as the primary ball-handler, which was a positive change from his play over the last month or so. He averaged 16.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists in his two starts. He should get the start going up against Dennis Smith in the next game. It was great to see the Celtics playing well without their primary scorer on the floor that tells us that the Celtics depth is still very deep and the players are still capable of picking up the slack if one of the players go down with an injury. Playing against Dallas they will need to find someone to cover Luka who has been on a tear lately and are coming off a blowout win on the road.

Against The Spread Selection: Dallas Mavericks
My reason for the pick :
The Mavs will win back-to-back road games taking down the Celtics in TD Garden. It will be tough for the Celtics to score against this Dallas team as I don’t see Hayward scoring 20+ two games in a row. The scoring will be balanced out among the Celtics players as they won’t have an answer for Luka in this game who is about to have a great game. After winning on the road for the first time in many months Dallas has finally figured out their road woes. Go with Dallas in this game.
