Celtics Face New Look Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have traded Blake Griffin. That doesn’t mean they’re giving up the ghost. The Clippers are 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS since sending Griffin to Detroit. Wednesday night they’ll play the Boston Celtics.

The Celtics have lost three of their last four games straight up and against the spread. Tip-off is at 8 PM ET on ESPN. Oddsmakers have Celtics as 4.5-point favorites and the total is at 212.

Los Angeles had a history of playing well whenever Griffin was out of the lineup. That happened quite a lot during his tenure. They now have a better-balanced and deeper lineup at the helm. Tobias Harris is at small forward and Danilo Gallinari replacing Griffin at the 4-spot. They are alongside defensive stalwart DeAndre Jordan.

Starting point guard Milos Teodosic has missed back-to-back games dealing with the sore right foot. It is a problem that has troubled him all season.

The Celtics (40-18 SU, 34-22-2 ATS) didn’t make any trades at last week’s deadline, but they did sign centre Greg Monroe for the remainder of 2017-18. Monroe played very well in 20 games for the Phoenix Suns before getting his contract bought out. Meanwhile, SG Marcus Smart (hand) is being shut down until after the All-Star break, giving more minutes to improving third-year guard Terry Rozier.
