The Utah Jazz travel to Boston for a rematch with the Celtics from just nine days ago. But with the Celtics’ recent rash of injuries, is this truly a rematch?
Tonight, the Celtics will be without Gordon Hayward (knee) and Jaylen Brown (hamstring) but they will be gaining Kemba Walker who missed last week’s matchup with a knee injury. He played just 23 minutes in his first game back from injury, but per our FantasyLabs tools, he will see his minutes limit increased for tonight’s game.
Friday NBA Odds & Picks
Utah Jazz at Boston Celtics
- Spread: Celtics -1.5
- Over/Under: 221.5
- Time: 8 p.m. ET
The return of Kemba Walker after resting on Wednesday should offset some of the loss of Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown, but it does little to explain the line. At the time of this writing, the moneyline sits at Celtics -120.
