The Boston Celtics look to keep rolling after winning five of their last eight games. The Boston Celtics are averaging 101.9 points on 43 percent shooting and allowing 98.1 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Isaiah Thomas is averaging 21.2 points and 6.1 assists while Avery Bradley is averaging 15.4 points and 2.8 rebounds.

The Boston Celtics are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and have allowed less than 100 points in five of their last eight games. The Celtics are turning the ball over 16.1 times per game, two more than league average. The Celtics have won four of their last six home games.
The Wizards are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. loss and 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 Friday games. The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.
The Wizards are taking plays off defensively and losing games they shouldn't be losing. Sloppy play won't fly against the well coached Celtics. I like the home team and the reasonable chalk.
