TOR vs BOS Dream11 Match Prediction

TOR vs BOS Dream11: Boston Celtics hit the road to play their Atlantic Division rivals north of the border at Scotiabank Arena, as the champions Toronto Raptors prepare for the Christmas schedule.
Nick Nurse’s men come into this game with a close 120-115 away defeat against Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. They were once again without their top-scorer Pascal Siakam and will have to play without him against the Celtics. The task becomes a tad harder as a result, as the Celtics are one of the best defensive teams in the league, and also carry a myriad of offensive threat to contend with for the opponnets.
The Celtics are 2d in the Eastern Conference, with a 20-7 return on the season. They last beat Charlotte Hornets 119-93 at TD Garden and extended their winning streak to three games.
