-----------------------------------

 

 

Brooklyn Nets:

 

Brooklyn finished the season 48-24 and was second in both the Atlantic division and Eastern Conference behind the first-place Philadelphia 76ers. The Nets ended the regular season with 5 consecutive victories and their trio of stars Kyrie Irving, James Harden and Kevin Durant are healthy once again.

 

 

 Boston Celtics:

 

Boston earned its spot in the postseason as the 7th seed with a victory over the Wizards 118-100 in the play-in tournament. Several players for Boston have recovered from nagging injuries and will play on Saturday, but second-leading scorer Jaylen Brown is out and Robert Williams III is day-to-day with a foot injury. Jayson Tatum was the leading scorer for Boston with an average of 26.4 points in the regular season.

 

 

Prediction:

 

Brooklyn has covered the number in five of the last six meetings overall between the two and in each of the last six against the Celtics on its home court at the Barclays Center. Therefore, I pick Nets -7.5.

 

Mike's Pick: Brooklyn Nets - 7.5
