Result: Win

Take the Celtics -2.5

The Mavs played great their last time out defeating the Milwaukee Bucks in Milwaukee without their best player in Doncic. However, I think they come back to Earth in this game as they take on a well rested, hungry Celtics team. This will be the Celtics first game since their loss to the 76ers at home last Thursday. Although they will be without their best defender in Marcus Smart the Celtics have plenty of players that can step up. The Mavs will need to rely heavily on Porzingis this game but he seems a little reluctant to bang in the post since coming back from injury. The Celtics will be able to switch on him with their many wing players if he doesn't go down low. The Celtics dominated the Mavs a little over a month ago with their best player. I like them to do the same tonight without the Mavs best player.
