For the Boston Celtics, Wednesday night served up an outcome that not many predicted. With Stephen Curry going down with a foot injury late in the second quarter, the C’s were able to capitalize and pull away where, in the end, they would come out on top110-88, outscoring Golden State 31-19 in the 4th quarter.

Now, Friday night we’ll be seeing the green and white continue on their west coast journey as they get ready to battle the 25-46 Sacramento Kings.

Boston is 24-7 in their last 31 games, continuing to climb the Eastern Conference rankings. The shamrocks have started out the month of March to the tune of a 6-1 record.

The Kings, on the other hand, have not been as lucky, sporting a lowly 2-6 record.

For the Celtics, it’s a relatively clean injury report again, as just Aaron Nesmith is expected to once again be out.

Sacramento will be without Terrence Davis and Jeremy Lamb, while star point guard, De’Aaron Fox, is listed as questionable with a hand injury (at the time of this writing).

These two teams have met once prior to this outing. At the TD Garden, it was the home team who came out victorious by a wide margin, winning by a final score of 128-75.

Boston will bring their league-leading defense to Sacramento to battle the league’s 28th ranked defense.

On paper, this looks like a cakewalk for the shamrocks as they enter as -9.5 and -360 on the money line. 95 percent of the public bet is on the C’s to cover the spread according to numbers from CBS Sports.
