Boston Celtics Preview

The Boston Celtics escaped with a win over the Golden State Warriors last night after dropping 2 straight games. It wasn’t any easy matchup against Steve Kerr’s men, especially with Stephen Curry lighting up the Chase Center with 38 point along with 8 assists and 11 rebounds.

Jayson Tatun, who missed a few matches recently due to Covid-19 was the star of the show, leading the team with 27 points. Kemba Walker, who struggled against the LA Lakers added 19 points in this game with 5 assists. Jaylen Brown also chipped in with 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists.

As a team, Boston Celtics shot 46 percent from the field and 13 of 34 from the 3-point line, rallying back from an early 11-point deficit to edge out the Warriors in a close finish. The absence of Marcus Smart will definitely hurt the Boston Celtics, who don’t have the kind of depth other title contenders can boost of.

Jaylen Brown has been a treat to watch this season. The leading candidate for the Most Improved Player of the Year award, he has been averaging 27.1 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 1.4 SPG. Many expect him to make his first ever All-Star selection this year, even though there is uncertainity as to whether the actual game will happen or not.

There is no doubt that that Brown has been the best player for the Boston Celtics especially in the absence of Jayson Tatum and lack of production from Kemba Walker.

De’Aaron Fox led the team with 38 points and 12 assists, Harrison Barnes added 24 points on 8 of 14 shooting from the field.

Richaun Holmes was sensational in their last game, scoring 17 points with 10 rebounds and an astonishing 6 blocks, while 28-year-old Buddy Hield chipped in with 16 points.
Key Player – De’Aaron Fox
Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

De’Aaron Fox signed a 4-year extension worth over $163M this offseason. At the start of the season. At the time of signing the extension, many felt that Sacramento Kings were taking a big risk commiting so much money into a young talent, who has still a lot to prove in this league.

Fortunately, Fox has been worth every penny emerging as the team’s leader, while averaging 22.1 PPG, 6.1 APG, 1.3 SPG and leading the Sacramento Kings to a 9-11 record in the super-competitive Western Conference.

Celtics vs Kings Match Prediction

Boston Celtics have had a tough stretch of 3 games but managed to end that run with a win against the Golden State Warriors. While the Sacramento Kings to whom every game matter, being in the West, will look to the leadership and skills of De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield, to bring home the W.

However, given Boston Celtics star power and the recent upturn in the form of Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum, expect the Eastern Conference giants to come out with a win.
