The Boston Celtics and Sacramento Kings meet up for the second and final time in the regular season on Tuesday night. The Celtics won the first matchup at home 122-104 as they held the elite Kings offense to 41% shooting from the floor and 25% from beyond the arc. Given the success Sacramento has had all season long on the offensive end, that game was an anomaly.
Both teams look to get back on track tonight following a loss in their last game. The Celtics will be playing on three days rest, whereas the Kings are five-point underdogs while playing on the second leg of a back-to-back.
NBA Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick
The Parlay: (+340)
- Sacramento Kings Over 115.5 Points (-110)
- Keegan Murray 3+ Made 3-Point Shots (+100)
Sacramento Kings Over 115.5 Points (-110)
The Kings flaunt a 7-5 record playing on no rest this season. They have continued to be one of the league’s highest scoring teams even without rest, eclipsing 120 points eight of 12 times on the second leg of back-to-back games.
Tonight they take on the Celtics who rank among the top 10 in most defensive statistical categories – most notably the Celtics are seventh in opponent points per game, fifth in effective field goal percentage and fourth in Defensive Rating (excluding garbage time, per Cleaning The Glass).
Although they limited the Kings’ success in Boston, this time around the Kings get the advantage of their home court where they flaunt the league’s highest Offensive Rating, second-highest effective field goal percentage and average 124.2 points per game – six more points per contest than on the road.
Keegan Murray 3+ Made 3-Point Shots
Kings rookie Keegan Murray has been their secret weapon all year. He’s having a monster season shooting 44.5% from the floor and 40.7% from beyond the arc.
Murray is averaging 6.1 attempts from 3 per contest on the season, with that number much higher as of late. On March 18th against the Wizards, he put up 5-of-10 shooting from deep, and most recently against the Jazz last night, he hit 6-of-14 from deep.
Along with impressive shooting numbers, he’s also seen a big uptick in playing time thanks to his offense, logging 30 or more in four straight games.
Expect Murray to continue to stay hot from beyond the arc as the volume of attempts will be there. The Kings will need him to make shots to stay close against the Celtics, and he has proven more than capable of that.
