The Boston Celtics look to stay hot tonight when they battle the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Boston Celtics have rediscovered their scoring touch with their third straight game of 100 points or more and it has led to their third straight win, a 107-96 victory against the 76ers. Jared Sullinger led the way with 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assits, Avery Bradley added 18 points and the bench combined for 45 poiints as the Celtics blew away the Sixers by 60-42 in the first half before easing off in the second half. With the win, Boston improves to 19-30 on the season and 11-15 at home.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks were enjoying a five-game win streak until they ran into the Rockets last night and lost by 117-111. Giannis Antetokuonmopo led the way with 27 points, 15 rebounds and four assists while six other players finished in double digits in scoring, but it still wasn't enough as the Rockets just scorched them for 15 of 32 from the three point line. With the loss, Milwaukee drops to 27-23 on the season and 15-13 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Celtics are 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall, while the Bucks are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four games agains the Eastern Conference.
It's really hard to pick between these two teams because they're both in similar form, but I'm definitely leaning towards the Celtics with the points in this one because it may just be a close one.
