Boston recorded a 99-85 home victory Monday night at Phoenix to improve to 11-2 overall and 6-2 on the road. The Celtics led 57-42 at halftime en route to the triumph. Jayson Tatum led Boston with 26 points on 8-of-16 shooting including 3-of-9 from 3-point range plus 7-of-9 at the free throw line. He also registered 11 rebounds and three assists.

NBA Betting Trends
The Celtics are 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus the Pacific Division. Boston is 21-7-3 ATS in its last 31 Wednesday games.
The Clippers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games. Los Angeles is 5-1-1 ATS in its last seven games versus the Eastern Conference.
Boston has risen to the occasion against the toughest teams thus far on its schedule and I doubt its any different here. The Clippers are still awaiting the return of Kawhi Leonard so him and George can see the court together and it might not happen again tonight. This is a game LA could really use Leonard against the tough-nosed wings of the Celtics. I think the visitors take advantage and cover this spread if not win outright.
