At this point in the season, the Celtics getting a plus spread is too good to resist. Of course there’s a reason for that spread, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford are both day-to-day (likely to miss), and Robert Williams is out. The Raptors will be missing Gary Trent Jr. and potentially Fred VanVleet although initial indications are that Fred will play. They have been cautious with him this year though so don’t be surprised if he sits. Either way, Jaylen Brown is more than capable of carrying the Celtics without Tatum. The team defense has been unstoppable and they have a deep roster to support the missing starters. The Raptors have struggled offensively since the all-star break without Gary Trent Jr. and if VanVleet is missing as well, this moves up to a pick of the month.
