NBA FREE PICK: Take Boston. According to latest NBA trends, Chicago is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, 5-15 ATS in their last 20 games following a S.U. win and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. Boston is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, favorite is 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings and home team is 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

Boston looks to end the Chicago Bulls' four-game road winning streak when it concludes a stretch of five straight at home Friday night. The Celtics were outplayed by New Orleans in Wednesday's 90-78 loss that ended a six-game win streak. They shot a dismal 6 of 16 (37.5 percent) from the free throw line - their worst percentage since going 5 of 14 (35.7) in a loss to Houston on Nov. 11, 1994 - and finished 4 of 18 from 3-point range. Boston faces a team on Friday that they have owned in the Garden. The Celtics have won 11 of the last 14 meetings - including the postseason - with the Bulls at TD Garden. The difference in this game is Rajon Rondo, who is averaging 21.0 points in his last five games in the series. He scored a season-high 26 in the last matchup and he's nearly impossible to guard. Without Derrick Rose, the Celtics will have their way with that matchup and in the game.
