Summary:

Warriors have won three of four, yet those triumphs came against the Timberwolves (twice) and the Pistons. Aside from their Jan. 18 win over the Lakers, the Warriors have regularly vacillated against the better teams. I trust Boston fits that bill, even without Marcus Smart. Search for the Celtics to improve to 7-1 in their last eight visits to Golden State.

Details:

Boston enters this game following two extremely close losses so I think that it should be very motivated to get off to a fast start over the first 24 minutes of this game.

These two teams have looked pretty similar to each other but the Celtics are the healthier basketball team so I think that this spread is too low. They have the much better offense in terms of efficiency and I think that they will be able to overwhelm the Warriors due to their scoring depth. Celtics have Brown, Tatum and Walker in the lineup once again while Warriors will be without Wiseman so I think that Boston is simply the more talented team.

Plus, Boston ranks tied for 10 in offensive efficiency while Golden State ranks 22nd in adjusted offensive efficiency so I expect Golden State to struggle scoring enough points in order to cover this spread. As a result, I think that there is some value for Boston so I will go for a win and they will cover this spread on -1. Even if Warriors have been playing extremely well lately, Boston is the better team here. Even without smart.
