This preview is provided by Accuscore and is not written by any members of RedsArmy.com. Predictions are based on computer simulations. The video, however, is mine… and reflects my thoughts that this is a big-time trap game for the Celtics since it's a back-to-back with the Lakers and Heat coming up on the schedule.
The Boston Celtics are solid 72.2 percent favorites over the Charlotte Bobcats. The Celtics are shooting 47.2 percent from the field and the Bobcats are forecasted to shoot 44.4 percent. The rebounding battle is pretty even with the Celtics projected for 35.7 rebounds vs. 35.6 for the Bobcats. The Celtics are committing fewer turnovers at 12.3 vs 14.4 for the Bobcats. The Celtics are making 4.6 three pointers on 36 percent from three point range. The Bobcats are making 4.8 three pointers on 32.8 percent.
