The Los Angeles Clippers pay a visit to the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden tonight.
The Clippers have won seven of their last eight games and will be looking for a fourth straight win after beating the 76ers by 98-92 in an overtime win on Monday. JJ Redick and Jamal Crawford led all scorers with 23 points each, Chris Paul had 19 points while DeAndre Jordan added 12 points and 21 rebounds as the Clippers rallied from an early 17-point deficit to force overtime and escape with the victory. With the win, Los Angeles improves to 35-17 overall and 18-9 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Celtics had won eight of their last nine before a 112-111 loss to the Bucks snapped their four-game win streak. Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley led the team in scoring with 18 points each while Isaiah Thomas and Kelly Olynyk had 15 points apiece as the Celtics rallied back from a 19-point fourth quarter deificit only to lose by one free throw with 0.6 seconds left on the clock. The Celtics will draw confidence from their ability to climb back from a seemingly impossible position, but they'll know they let one win slip there.
In ATS trends, the Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games overall, while the Celtics are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
Head to head, the Clippers are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings overall and 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Boston.
Both teams are coming into this game in winning form so it's really hard to split this one, but I'm leaning towards the Celtics looking to bounce back from a tough loss over a Clippers team who almost lost to the 76ers.
