Who’s Playing

Boston @ Golden State

Current Records: Boston 41-28; Golden State 47-22

What to Know

The Golden State Warriors have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Boston Celtics at 10 p.m. ET March 16 at Chase Center. The Warriors should still be riding high after a win, while Boston will be looking to regain their footing.

Golden State had enough points to win and then some against the Washington Wizards on Monday, taking their matchup 126-112. Point guard Stephen Curry went supernova for Golden State as he shot 7-for-14 from downtown and finished with 47 points, six assists and six rebounds.

Boston lost a heartbreaker to the Dallas Mavericks when they met last November, and they left with a heavy heart again on Sunday. Boston fell just short of Dallas by a score of 95-92. A silver lining for the Celtics was the play of power forward Al Horford, who had 17 points in addition to six boards and five steals.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Warriors are expected to win a tight contest Wednesday. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Golden State is now 47-22 while Boston sits at 41-28. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Golden State have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 43.80%, which places them second in the league. But Boston is even better: they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 43.20%, which places them first in the league. We’ll see if that edge gives the Celtics a route to victory.
