Toronto Raptors vs Boston Celtics NBA 2018 Match Preview

Overview:

Two teams who are favourites to get into the NBA Eastern Conference Finals will be taking each other on in just the second game of the season, as Boston Celtics travel to Canada to take on Toronto Raptors.

Boston Celtics won the first game of the season against a competitive side in Philadelphia 76ers. It was down to the mistakes of their opponent that made them victorious in this matchup. Their star point-guard Kyrie Irving looked lost and looked a shadow of his former self. Thankfully, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown produce sensational performances to close the game. Boston Celtics are a phenomenal team, and if they remain injury free, might end being in the NBA Championship Finals.

On the other hand, Toronto Raptors have acquired the services of one of the most sought-after players in the recent years in Kawhi Leonard. Even though DeMar DeRozan has been traded, the likes of Kyle Lowry showcased the fact the recently promoted coach in Nick Nurse can be someone who can carry the flag of Toronto Raptors. They are an unbelievable team, and will definitely be contesting for the playoff spots when the season is about to close.
