What to Know

After six games on the road, the Celtics are heading back home. They will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at 7:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday. The Celtics are strutting in with some offensive muscle, as they’ve averaged 120.9 points per game this season.

Last Monday, the Celtics strolled past the Hornets with points to spare, taking the game 118-104.

The Celtics’ success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but Kristaps Porzingis led the charge by scoring 20 points along with seven rebounds and five assists. Jrue Holiday, on the other hand, was considerably less helpful: he went 0-8 from beyond the arc.

Meanwhile, the Thunder were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Tuesday as they fell 109-105 to the 76ers. The loss hurts even more since Oklahoma City was up 57-44 with 11:48 left in the third.

Boston is on a roll lately: they’ve won 22 of their last 26 games, which provided a nice bump to their 59-16 record this season. As for Oklahoma City, their defeat dropped their record down to 52-23.

Looking ahead, the Celtics are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by nine points. This contest will be their 38th straight as the favorites (so far over this stretch they are 21-15-1 against the spread).

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as Boston and Oklahoma City are some of the highest scoring teams in the league. The Celtics haven’t had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 120.9 points per game (they’re ranked second in scoring overall). However, it’s not like the Thunder (currently ranked fourth) struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging 120.2. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run the score up higher.
