The Celts are coming off of a huge loss to MVP favorite Kevin Durant and company, so it should be revealing to see how they respond to a rough patch in their season. The Nuggets are favored (-7.5) and would probably pick them to cover the spread at home if it were my money; this is mainly because Brad Stevens liked the way his team moved the ball, but was a bit disappointed in their defense.
“I thought our ball movement in the first half was really good,” Stevens said after the latest loss. “That dried up in the second, and we didn’t help each other on defense very often. One of the things we’ve got to do as a group is when things don’t go well, we’ve got to collect ourselves quicker and make things go in our favor again. When things are going well, we’re not bad, but when things don’t go well, we haven’t responded well lately.”
Might have one more preview coming at you today, and then be sure to stay tuned later this week. Excited to get some football content for you all in the coming month, but will just take a little bit more time to throw all of that together.
