10* NBA Game of the Week
Houston vs. Boston,
03/03/2019 15:30 EDT,
Score: 115 - 104
Point Spread: -2½/-102 Boston
When it comes to the spread, Boston is among the league's top teams at home, Houston is among the worst on the road.
James Harden is coming off a high 58 points in his last game. I don't see that happening again and I look for the Boston Celtics to avenge an earlier season loss against these Rockets. Harden has shot 37.7 percent in 19 career games against the Celtics, his lowest mark against any opponent.
Boston needs to balance their scoring. We all know Kyrie Irving is the leader for this Celtics team. The man averages 23.4 points per game. However, he cannot do it all by himself. The Houston defense is relatively soft and is known to allow a ton of points. If the Celtics manage to get everyone involved, it will free up their best shooters and help to get them better looks at the basket and the Celtics to get a big win here at home on Sunday.
