Point Spread: 9.50 | -110.00 Boston (Away)
Boston looked decent for three quarters in Game 1, but then it fell apart down the stretch. The Celtics have a great player in Jayson Tatum, and they'll once again be leaning heavily on both him and Kemba Walker tonight. The Nets managed to hold on for the victory and cover, but let's not expect a duplicate performance on that end of the court. The Celtics had a terrible shooting game, and still almost managed to cover. The Nets are loaded with talent, but which is yet unproven as working together as a unit, especially in difficult moments in the playoffs. Outright victory? Probably not. But look for the Celtics to give their absolute best shot here as they try desperately to pull off the upset and avoid the 0-2 hole; grab the points!
T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.
