Celtics vs. Nets Prediction

127.6.

That’s how many points per 100 possessions the Boston Celtics have given up in this series.

And that’s including a game when they only gave up 104 to the team that looks like it cannot be stopped.

Now, Boston finds themselves on the road, down 3-1, and banged up. The year from hell is 48 minutes from its conclusion. By the looks of their effort on Sunday night, when they gave up 112 points in three quarters, at home, Tuesday night promises to be ugly.

Just how ugly is the question, as is whether the Nets will race out to such an advantage that they’ll leave the back door open ever so slightly.

This line is large enough that such a thing has to be a concern, especially with Jayson Tatum continuing to do everything for Boston.

But taking a team praying they cover on the tail end after laying down early is never a wise proposition. Give the points and take your chances. Brooklyn has earned that level of respect.
