The Boston Celtics are proving they can hang with the big boys in the NBA this season and will have another opportunity to knock off a perennial contender Wednesday when they welcome the Dallas Mavericks to TD Garden. Boston (6-4 SU) has won three-straight games by topping Atlanta, Oklahoma City and Houston by a combined 44 points and is excelling in Brad Stevens’ system.
- The Celtics are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games at home in November.
- The Mavericks are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games after an ATS loss.
- The visiting team is 11-2 ATS in its last 13 games in this matchup.
The Mavericks (7-4 SU, 6-5 ATS) have proved the doubters wrong so far in a year where many thought they would sink in the Western Conference standings. Mavs backers cringe seeing them take the road, however, as Dirk Nowitzki and company are a paltry 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games away from Big D.
Beantown has been kind to the Mavs in recent matchups. Dallas is 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS in their last six games in Boston.
