The Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors will meet on the court at Air Canada Centre on Tuesday in a battle of division rivals.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (23-14): Marcus Smart got the start in Bradley’s place in the win over the Pelicans and scored a season-high 22 points while making 5-of-7 3-pointers. “(My mentality was) just to bring it early,” Smart told reporters “Avery Bradley was out, it’s a tough game.” Smart is shooting 36.2 percent from long range in his 11 starts – including 3-of-7 against Toronto on Dec. 9 – and 28.7 percent in 23 games off the bench.

ABOUT THE RAPTORS (24-12): Celtics All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas might be licking his chops while thinking about matching up with Toronto, which allowed opponents’ stars to dominate of late. Chicago’s Jimmy Butler went off for 42 points in an overtime win against the Raptors on Saturday and Houston’s James Harden posted another triple-double with 40 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in Sunday’s triumph at Air Canada Centre. “We played against two superstars and they beat us,” guard Kyle Lowry – who tied a season low with two made baskets in the loss to the Rockets – told reporters. “Jimmy did it last night and James did it tonight. We’ve got to make sure to stop those guys and adjust to the game plan a little bit better.”

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Raptors listed as 4½-point favorites versus the Celtics, while the game’s total is sitting at 218 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

The Boston Celtics won four straight and six of their last seven, and now have their sights set on moving further up the Eastern Conference standings. The streaking Celtics can take a big step in that pursuit when they visit the struggling Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.

The Raptors dropped five of seven to see their lead over the Celtics for the second spot in the conference reduced to one game as the two squads approach the halfway point to the season. Boston does have one physical issue to address, as guard Avery Bradley missed Saturday’s 117-108 win over New Orleans due to a strained Achilles and he is questionable for this one. The bulk of Toronto’s recent slide occurred on the road but it continued in the opener of a four-game homestand Sunday, when Houston knocked off the Raptors 129-122. Toronto allowed at least 110 points five times during its 2-5 swoon.

Last time out for Toronto, they were a 129-122 loser as they battled the Rockets at home. The Raptors failed to cover in the match as a +2-point underdog, while 251 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Celtics were a 117-108 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Pelicans. They covered the -6-point spread as favorites, while the total score (225) made winners of OVER bettors.
