The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls will see each other for the third and final time on Monday. The Bulls will come into the game with a 23-13 home record, while the Celtics will come into it with an 8-26 record on the road. Chicago will definitely be the favorites in this one.
The Celtics come into this one without any hope of making the playoffs. They sit in fourth place in the Atlantic Division and 12th place overall in the Eastern Conference. They still have one of the better defenses in the league, but are near the bottom of the league in scoring at around 95 points per game.
The Bulls have exceeded many people's expectations considering they have played all but 10 of their games without their star point guard Derrick Rose. The three-time All-Star has been out since late-November when he injured his right knee against the Portland Trail Blazers. He would end up needing to get season-ending surgery for the injury.
Chicago, like Boston, is also one of the worst scoring teams in the league at around 93 points per game. However, they make up for that by being the second-best defensive squad in the NBA by giving up about 92 points per game. They are also amongst the top ten rebounding teams in the league and in the top half of the league in assists.
Boston is 19-14-1 ATS on the road this season
Boston is 14-20-0 against the over/under on the road this season
Chicago is 18-18-0 ATS at home this season
Chicago is 11-25-0 against the over/under at home this season
