BOS vs TOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
It’s a battle between the two giants of the Eastern Conference as Toronto Raptors host Boston Celtics in an NBA regular-season match at Scotiabank Arena, in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Wednesday morning (IST).
Though this is a regular season match, this fixture can, in all conceivable imagination, be the one deciding the Eastern Conference this season. But the form suggests that Milwaukee Bucks could be the team to beat come the post-season, while both Raptors and Celtics have been suffering from inconsistency of late.
It was quite evident when Raptors fell to a shock 98-113 loss against Orlando Magic in the last match. Though Kawhi Leonard sat out the match, still losing at home to Magic (28-33) wasn’t expected.
Boston Celtics meanwhile slipped to 5th in the Eastern Conference table after going down 116-126 against Chicago Bulls. The Greens were at full strength, with Kyrie Irving scoring a magnificent 37 points, but t wasn’t enough.
The 17-time NBA champions have sporadically looked like a team of different stature, Sometimes it seemed as if the current generation of Celtics is ready to build their own legacy, like when they won 10 times in 11 games just after new year. And on other instances, the inconsistency marred the team, and it seems as if they are not ready, just like the chastening lost to the 16-44 Bulls in the last match.
Regular Season Record-
Toronto Raptors: W-44, L-17
Boston Celtics: W-37, L-23
Players to watch out for:
Kawhi Leonard –The former San Antonio Spurs star was rested in the last match, and his absence was felt as Raptors lost to Orlando Magic. The 27-year-old is in good touch this season and is averaging 26.9 points per game.
Pascal Siakam – In the last 10 matches, the 24-year-old power forward has averaged 20.9 points per game, which shows how important he is for Toronto Raptors.
Kyrie Irving – The 26-year-old All-Star is one of the biggest talents in the world. He has already won an NBA championship with Cleveland Cavaliers and is looking to repeat the feat with his new team. with LeBron James out of the east, his team is one of the favorites to win the Eastern Conference. And much will depend on Irving’s performance for how far exactly Greens can go. But he is in good form, and is racking up 23.8 points per game.
Jayson Tatum – The 20-year-old is dropping 17.5 points per game this season, 2nd best for Celtics. He was the part of Team World during the All-Star weekend and scored 30 points.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Boston Celtics have had a proper rest since playing on Saturday against Chicago Bulls. They lost that match and dropped to 5th on the table. While Toronto have won 14 of their last 16 home games, making the trip a tad more formidable for the somewhat inconsistent Greens.
A win for the Raptors is our call.
