Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets

Friday, March 3, 2023 – 07:30 PM EST at Barclays Center

Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics) 

The first-place Boston Celtics visit the Brooklyn Nets tonight. The Nets are coming off a 142-118 loss to the New York Knicks. That was the Nets’ fourth consecutive loss and their sixth loss in their last seven games. The Nets gave up 81 points in the first half against the Knicks, a team record for defensive futility. 

The Boston Celtics are coming off a 117-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Celtics will look to continue their winning ways against the struggling Nets tonight. 

The Pick 

After two poor showings coming off his MVP performance, Jayson Tatum bounced back in the win over the Cavaliers. Tatum had 41 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists. It was a fantastic night for the Celtics team leader. 

Jayson Tatum is averaging 30.3 points per game this season. I expect him to exceed his average tonight and put up another fine performance against a Nets team that is struggling to defend. Take the Jayson Tatum points prop over

NBA Pick: Jayson Tatum Over 28.5 points (-131) at Caesars  

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Sacramento Kings

Friday, March 3, 2023 – 10:00 PM EST at Golden 1 Center

Domantas Sabonis (Sacramento Kings) 

The Kings and the Clippers will rematch 7 days after their record-setting performance last Friday night in Los Angeles. The Kings and the Clippers were involved in the second-highest-scoring game in NBA history, a 176-175 win for the Kings. Now the two teams run it back and the Clippers will have revenge on their mind. 

The Pick 

Domantas Sabonis averages 12.4 rebounds per game this season. This game will be high-paced. The total of this game is set at 240, meaning the bookmakers expect an up-and-down, quick affair. Sabonis has gone over this total in four of his last six games. 

A high pace means plenty of shots and plenty of shots means plenty of opportunities to grab rebounds. The NBA’s leading rebounder will take advantage of this tonight and continue to add to his lead in that category. We can look forward to Domantas Sabonis being active on the glass and going over his rebounding prop total tonight. 

NBA Pick: Domantas Sabonis Over 12.5 rebounds (-137) at Caesars  

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Friday, March 3, 2023 – 10:30 PM EST at Arena

Rudy Gobert (Minnesota Timberwolves) 

The Los Angeles Lakers will take the floor without their team leader LeBron James tonight. The Lakers will be relying on Anthony Davis to lead the way. Davis sat out Wednesday night’s game against the Thunder in order to rest up for tonight’s game. 

The Minnesota Timberwolves ended a three-game losing streak when they defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 108-101 on Tuesday night. The Timberwolves have had plenty of time to rest up for tonight’s pivotal matchup. The Lakers are currently in 11th place and the Timberwolves are in 8th place. Tonight’s game will have a big impact on the Western Conference standings. 

The Pick

Rudy Gobert leads the Minnesota Timberwolves in rebounding at 11.5 rebounds per game. He has recorded a double-double in three of his last four games. With Anthony Davis expected to be the focal point of the Lakers’ offense, Gobert will be needed on the floor tonight. 

Rudy Gobert has a lot to prove, and a high-profile matchup against the NBA’s most popular team is a great place to win the respect of fans and teammates. I expect Gobert to go for another double-double tonight.
