The Boston Celtics, who began their four-game California road trip with an impressive 128-95 victory over the NBA’s defending Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, will attempt to maintain that winning rhythm while solidifying their playoff opportunity as they get ready to resume hostilities in a showdown against the Sacramento Kings. The two inter-conference belligerents are scheduled to square off in the first installment of their two-game regular season series with the tilt set to be contested at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA.

The Celtics swept the two-game series last season over the Kings while covering the numbers in both tilts as favorites. The Celtics are one of the most inconsistent and perplexing teams in the NBA. Prior to the season’s start, many labeled Boston the team to beat coming out of the East, as their roster boasted unlimited talents. They enjoyed an impressive stretch from earlier in the year winning 10 of 11 games with their only loss coming to the Warriors by 4 points, but they then proceeded to drop 7 of 10 games, prior to blowing out the defending champions last night.

The Kings have done well of late pleasing their backers, winning four of their last five games against teams with winning records and 11 of their last 14 home games. The Celtics had struggled against the spread before their win against the Warriors, losing their last four games against Western Conference opponents and going 0-6 ATS against Pacific Division teams. Take Kings +3 and the over.
