The Celtics go into the game as massive favorites. On paper, this game is as one-sided as it gets in the NBA. Boston currently topping the Eastern Conference standings, with 25 wins and just 6 defeats. On the contrary, the Spurs are rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference standings, having won only 5 games and losing another 26 games.

The Celtics have all their key players fit and ready for the game against the Spurs. Joe Mazzulla decided to rest Jayson Tatum, Kristaps Porzingis, and Al Horford for the game against the Raptors on Friday. However, the Celtics could miss the services of Jrue Holiday. They have listed Jrue as questionable for tonight’s game due to a right elbow sprain.

Predicted Lineups: Spurs vs CelticsThe Spurs have their work cut out, as they face the daunting task of matching up against a dominant Celtics’ side. Despite possessing talented youngsters like Victor Wembanyama and Devin Vassell, the Spurs have failed to impress this season. Although it might be premature to anticipate the Spurs making a significant impact on the playoff race, their roster quality suggests they are better than what their current standing indicates. They could start the game with Tre Jones, Malaki Branham, Devin Vassell, Keldon Johnson, and Victor Wembanyama.

They could start the game with Payton Pritchard, Derrick White, Jayson Tatum, Sam Hauser, and Kristaps Porziņģis.
