Brooklyn Nets vs Boston Celtics Odds and Prediction: Recent form

The Brooklyn Nets have found themselves in no man’s land so far with the kind of inconsistency they have showcased from the start of the season. After failing to make it to the conference final last season, Steve Nash was looking for some redemption.

But to their dismay, they have been marred by defeats. They are currently sitting in the middle of the table with 31 triumphs and 28 losses but the thing that has hurt them the most is the 13-15 (W/L) home record. In the last five outings, they have managed to emerge victorious twice while ending up on the wrong side against the likes of Wizards and Heat.

On the other hand, the 17-time champions have found their groove and are hoping for an ascent from hereon. Despite stumbling at the start, the recovery has been absolutely promising for them with the side currently placed in 6th position.

Even though the play-offs are fast emerging, the side can still manage to finish in the top 3 if they string a couple of victories. In their most recent game against Pistons, they faced a narrow defeat by just one point before which they were on a 9-match winning streak that included wins against 76ers, Hawks, and Nuggets. They have so far won 34 matches while losing 26 matches in the same period.

Nets:

Jevon Carter is turning out to be a trump card for the Nets in this season. Even though he plays for a limited time period, he leaves a long-lasting impact on the game. The point guard made 14 points in just 19 minutes against the Wizards.

He needs immense support from point guard Patty Mills who has a field goal percentage of 42.9 and a 3-pointer conversion of 39.1.

The Nets’ star Seth Curry coming to the party would be icing on the cake with the shooting guard averaging 18.3 points in this season.

Celtics

Shifting our focus to the Celtics, it is not hyperbole to mention that Jaylen Brown has shouldered the side on most occasions. In his last outing against Pistons, he made 6 assists and accounted to 31 points out of 111.

For them to go all guns blazing, it is important for Jayson Tatum to arrive at the party on Thursday. The small forward has an impressive free throw percentage of 84.2 and an average of 20.4 points per game.

In addition to all this, the role of Al Horford who is the Center in the lineup is of utmost importance as he accounts to almost 7.5 rebounds per game this season as well as have an above-average player rating of 16.5.
