Game keys on previous game:

Boston Celtics

After missing two matches with an eye injury Kyrie Irving returned with a statement scoring 17 points to lead eight players in amazing double figures as the Celtics beat the Brooklyn Nets 116-95 last Tuesday January 8 2019. The Celtics united as they unselfishly move the ball extremely well. Jayson Tatum scored 16 points and Al Horford, Gordon Hayward, Marcus Morris, Marcus Smart scored 12 points each for the Boston Celtics who is now on a three-game win streak. They have been moving the ball pretty well for four straight games with 30 assists; they had 37 assists on 47 points on their last game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Indiana Pacers

The pacers lost their 11th consecutive match north of the border. The pacers most recent win against Toronto was way back March 21, 2013. It was too tough for the Indiana Pacers to beat Toronto with a returning Kyle Lowry who had a very good ball game that night. On the first quarter both teams are scoring 60 percent but the Raptors have beaten the Pacers shooting six of nine attempts from 3-point range. The pacers did not do defense quite well that night as the Raptors are often left with a wide open shot beyond the arc.

The Boston Celtics is now on a three game win streak defeating Brooklyn Nets, Dallas Mavericks, and the Minnesota Timberwolves. They have won six of their last 10 games. They are now averaging 111.9 points per game and their key players Kyrie Irving are now averaging 22.9 points per game, Jayson Tatum with an average of 16.1 and Marcus Morris with 16.1 average points per game. On the other hand, the Indiana Pacers lost their six game win streak against the Toronro Raptors last Monday. They have won seven of their last ten games not including their match against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. The Pacers are now averaging 107.7 points per game and their key players Victor Oladipo is averaging 20.1 points per game, Bojan Bogdanovic with 16.3 points per game and Domantas Sabonbis with an average of 14.9 points per game. If the Pacers lose to their upcoming match against the Cavaliers, Boston Celtics will most likely have a higher chance of winning against them considering the fact that Indiana has 3 players with injury and Kyrie Irving joined the team again which resulted in a blowout win against Brooklyn 116-95.
