Line: Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics – view all NBA lines
[sc:NBA250 ]Miami plays its regular-season finale against the Celtics, who’ve won their previous two meeting this season. But the momentum’s bound to be on the Heat’s side as they enter this match having won four of their last five outings (4-1 ATS) and as winners of back-t0-back games. Boston, meanwhile, enters as losers of their past two games and will be desperate for a win especially with the East’s playoff seedings still pending. The Celtics are 7-3 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games at home.
Boston wins by single-digits.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Golden State Warriors (10:30 PM ET)
Line: Memphis Grizzlies (+16.5) vs. Golden State Warriors (-16.5); total: 211.5 – view all NBA lines
With the chance of breaking Michael Jordan’s 1995-96 Bulls’ 72-win regular-season record at stake here, don’t expect Golden State to lose. The Warriors are 8-2 SU and 5-5 ATS in their past 10 games at home and have beaten Memphis in their first three meetings this season. But it’s worth noting that Stephen Curry and co. only escaped with a one-point lead during their third encounter with the Grizzlies last Saturday at the FedEx Forum. In that game, the reigning NBA champions were held to just 100 points collectively , and also had to rally back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth period.
Warriors (-16.5) make history with a blowout win over the Grizzlies, 107-91.
