Celtics minus 7 1/2 at Warriors 

Golden State is only Golden State in name now. I’ve never seen an NBA team that had a five-year run of making the championship series drop all the way to being in the argument for bottom team in the NBA. Golden State’s 2-10 record is the worst. Boston is just the opposite. The Celtics haven’t lost since opening night riding a nine-game win streak.

Aside from Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell and perhaps Eric Paschall, the Warriors’ roster is littered with lottery-type personnel. Injuries and free-agent defections have gutted the Warriors to the point where they now have to adopt the rebuild and play-for-next year philosophy of so many other bottom-feeders who litter the NBA landscape these days.

But I don’t see the Celtics taking the Warriors lightly. This is a nationally televised game (ESPN). Boston has either covered or pushed every game but one during its nine-game victory streak. Brad Stevens is a tremendous coach. This is the start of a five-game West Coast road trip. So it’s likely the Celtics’ win streak ends at some point considering three of the opponents are the much-improved 7-4 Suns, 7-5 Clippers and 8-3 Nuggets.

So getting off to a successful start on this road swing becomes very important for the Celtics. Boston suffered its own bad break losing Gordon Hayward with a broken hand. The Celtics, though, have excellent depth and their chemistry seems much better minus Kyrie Irving. Jayson Tatum and Jaylon Brown see the ball more without Irving and the early returns are good on Kemba Walker.

I had my seven-game NBA win streak end yesterday when the Mavericks failed to cover against the Knicks, losing straight-up. I am 15-4 on my last 19 NBA premium plays and 40-18 on my last 58 college basketball plays going back to last season, including 5-0 this season. I also am up 19.9 units in hockey this season and 104-68-2 on my last 174 premium/free college football plays. I am going for my 24th winning NFL season in the last 26 years. I have CBB and NBA premium plays going today in addition to this free selection.
