Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Boston. As of Wednesday afternoon, 73 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Celtics.

Injury Report: Celtics forward Guerschon Yabusele has missed four straight games with an illness and is questionable for tonight. Gordon Hayward is out indefinitely with a dislocated ankle and fractured tibia suffered in the season opener. For the Clippers, DeAndre Jordan has missed the last five games with a sprained ankle and it is unknown if he will suit up tonight. Jawun Evans missed the last game with a sore lower abdomen and is out again tonight. Patrick Beverley is out for the season after knee surgery. Austin Rivers is out until early February with a strained Achilles tendon. CJ Williams is out indefinitely with an ankle sprain. Danilo Gallinari is out indefinitely with a strained glute.

Who the Trends Like: Boston is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings. The under is 19-9-1 in the last 29 meetings overall and 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles.

Who We Like: The Celtics have lost four in a row, with only one of those being a road game. Eventually, strong teams that are well-coached start playing good basketball again. I like the Celtics and the way they match up here. Although Blake Griffin will pose a problem, Boston defends the perimeter well and should do enough to slow down Lou Williams. Los Angeles has numerous injuries and in a game such as this, those absences will be noticeable.
