  • Boston Celtics won 117-94 when the two teams last met on November 11

Boston Celtics Form

Boston head north of the border having won each of their last four games to improve to 8-2.

The Celtics opened the season with a five-game win streak, before finally tasting defeat when they lost 114-109 in overtime at Minnesota.

They then lost 106-103 when they visited Philadelphia, but their response to those defeats have been strong.

Boston got back on track with a 121-107 win over Brooklyn in their opening game of the NBA In-Season Tournament.

The Celtics then backed that up with a 117-94 blowout of Toronto, before beating New York for the second time this season, 108-104.

Toronto Raptors Form

Toronto go into their first NBA In-Season Tournament game in mixed form, having gone 4-3 in their last seven games to sit 5-5 on the season.

The Raptors failed to build on a season-opening win as they lost three straight games, but they have steadied the ship a little since then.

They blew out Milwaukee 130-111 at home, only to then fall to a 114-99 defeat when they visited Philadelphia.

Toronto rebounded with a 123-116 overtime win in San Antonio and a 127-116 upset of Dallas, but they failed to make it three-in-a-row as they then lost 117-94 in Boston.

The Raptors bounced back with a 111-107 victory over Washington, although their joy was short-lived as they lost 128-112 to Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

Verdict

Boston have repeatedly travelled to Toronto and covered over the years, and based on their current form more of the same is expected tonight.
