Emotions are going to be running high for the Celtics on Friday night, as they are going to be on the road just two days after beating the Dallas Mavericks in a high octane overtime game. This could be a bit of a look-ahead game as well, knowing that a Saturday soiree against the San Antonio Spurs is on deck on the road to boot. Boston has gotten great contributions from F Paul Pierce of late, but he can’t carry this team by himself. He won’t score 34 every night as he did against Dallas to bail out the C’s. Houston meanwhile, is a team that is significantly better at home (8-5) than on the road (2-6). The club snapped a three-game skid, all of which came against teams from the Lone Star State by beating the Washington Wizards 99-93 on Wednesday night, and this is the final game of a four-game home stand. The Rockets aren’t going to want to falter in this one, especially with an East Coast swing coming up next. Houston has covered three of the last four in this series, and it should be able to get the job done on Friday night.
Celtics @ Rockets Pick: Houston Rockets -2.5
Celtics @ Rockets Prediction: Rockets 105 – Celtics 98
