Boston Celtics halts falling

Boston Celtics halts falling

The Boston Celtics meets with the Sacramento Kings, aiming to put a stop on their fall in the standings. Due to their recent results, the Celtics continues to slip down the standings, but that does not stop them from dominating the league. The Kings on the other hand have been one of the most surprising team this season. They are actually doing well in the standings right now, but are still aiming for better results. Additionally, these two teams are eager to bounce back in this match, as both are coming from their respective losses. It will be the Kings who will host this match on March 22, 2023, at 10:00 AM (GMT+8).

In the regular season, this will be the second and the last time that these two teams will meet this season. Their first meeting ended in a win for the Celtics, in a 122-104 win for their squad. These two teams are from different conferences with the host coming from the West, and the visitors from the East. The hosts are currently in the third of the West with 43 wins from their 71 matches. Additionally, 21 of those wins are all coming at home, which is why they have confidence to come in this game. The visitors on the other hand are the second in the East, and have already secured a playoff spot. They won 49 of their 72 matches, where 23 of those come on the road.

The Celtics are looking to finally stop slipping down the standings with a win against the Kings. This is just unfortunate as they are holding on the top spot in the East almost all season, but now found themselves in the third. Just like other teams, the Celtics only have 10 games left this season before the playoffs. In their last 10 games, they have gone just 5-5, which is not bad but is not good either. On their last match, it is unfortunate that they were not able to get the win against the Jazz. That match ended in a 118-117 defeat for the Celtics. Defense are one of their problems recently, since their defensive anchor is still out. The Celtics still have a chance to climb at the top, if they can make wins from their last 10 matches. They are the fourth in offense with 117.6 points per game, and eighth in defense allowing 112.3 points per game.

Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown leads the Celtics with 30 and 26.7 points per game. However, Payton Pritchard, and Danilo Gallinari remains to be sidelined due to their own injuries.

The Kings surprised everyone considering their performance this season, making them one of the top teams in the West. Their spirit this season makes them prove that they are worthy of being at the top of the standings. This will be the second game of their back-to-back games, after suffering a defeat against the Jazz. It was a 128-120 loss for the Kings, which is an unfortunate one. If they won that match, that could have been their fourth straight win. Before that loss, they are actually in a hot run, winning seven of their last 10 games. Given their recent performance, they are now tied at the second with the Grizzlies. This squad is the first in offense with 121.1 points per game, but the 27th in defense, as they give up 118.2 points per game.

De’Aaron Fox, and Domantas Sabonis leads the Kings chipping in 25.3, and19.2 points per game respectively. Unfortunately, Kevin Hueter, who is their third highest scorer, remains out in this match.
