Boston shot 47% from the floor and 43% from three. Celtics are second best in the league and three point defense. They put on a very good defensive showing on the Raptors limiting Toronto to 36.9% overall and 10 of 40 from three. Raptors show weakness in a half court set without Kawhi Leonard. This is a much different opponent for the Raptors than the Nets. Let’s face it, Brooklyn was assembled in the bubble and had no idea how to defend in the NBA playoffs leaving open looks left and right for the Raptors. Now Toronto gets contested on shots. Play Boston +1.5.
