Who the Public Likes: Boston. As of Sunday morning, 76 percent of public bets have come in on the Celtics.

Injury Report: Trail Blazers guard CJ Wilcox is rehabbing from knee surgery and is out indefinitely. For Boston, Shane Larkin has missed the last three games with a knee injury and is questionable for today. Kyrie Irving has missed the last two games with a quad contusion and is expected to be out again Sunday. Marcus Morris missed the last game with a hip contusion and his status for today is unknown. Gordon Hayward is expected to miss the rest of the season with a dislocated ankle and broken tibia. Marcus Smart is out until mid-February with a hand laceration.

Who the Trends Like: Boston is 5-0 ATS in its last five games overall and 5-0 ATS in its last five games versus teams with a winning straight up record. Portland is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four road games versus an opponent with a winning percentage of greater than .600.

Who We Like: Boston has played fantastic basketball despite the absence of Irving, showing their depth in the process with Terry Rozier stepping into the starting lineup and playing exceptional basketball. The Trail Blazers has struggled on the road against good opponents lately and the early start time certainly doesn't help them. I'll pick Boston to cover the small spread here.
