The last time the Chicago Bulls faced the Boston Celtics, they walked away with a third straight loss and began to question what they had in front of them. The Bulls responded with a dramatic turnaround and will put a five-game winning streak on the line when they host the Celtics in a rematch Thursday.
The Celtics will be looking for a win after losing three of their last four including a 99-94 home loss to the Pistons last night. Isaiah Thomas led the team in scoring with 22 points and 10 assists but shot just six of 22 from the field, Evan Turner added 17 points while Amir Johnson and Jae Crowder added 16 points each, but it still wasn’t enough to get past the Pistons as the Celtics shot just 37 percent from the field. The Celtics have been in a bit of a slump but looked set for a win until their defense failed them in a 33-19 fourth quarter dominated by the Pistons. With the loss, Boston falls to 19-16 on the season and 9-10 at home.
Meanwhile, the Bulls will be going for a sixth straight win tonight after taking down the Bucks in a 117-106 win on Tuesday. Jimmy Butler led the way with 32 points and 10 assists, Pau Gasol added 26 points while Derrick Rose had 16 as the Bulls shot a sizzling 55 percent from the field to pull away from the Bucks late and improve to 21-12 on the season and 15-5 at home.
In ATS trends, the Celtics are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team above .600 and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall, while the Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record.
Philadelphia 76ers (0-15) at Boston Celtics (7-7)
NBA Basketball: Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 7:30 pm (TD Garden)
The Line: Boston Celtics -10.5 — Over/Under: 199
The Boston Celtics will look for back-to-back wins at home for the first time this season when they entertain the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night
Boston returns home following a brief two-game road swing, which included a 111-101 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday followed by a 121-97 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday
The Celtics follow up their visit from the 76ers with a home date against the Washington Wizards on Friday night, followed by a five-game road swing that starts against the Orlando Magic on Sunday.
The Celtics have lost three of their last four and will be licking their wounds after losing to the Hawks by 121-97 last night in a romp. Avery Bradley led the team with 25 points on 10 of 17 shooting but had little support as Isaiah Thomas scored just 14 points on three of 11 shooting. As a team, the Celtics shot 41.5 percent but their offense was the least of their troubles as they allowed the Hawks to shoot 56.3 percent from the field. The Celtics have really been playing poorly lately, but their hot start to the season means that they are still 7-7 overall and 3-3 on the road.
Meanwhile, the 76ers are still searching for their first win of the season after 15 games. A fast start to their game against the Timberwolves on Monday had Philly fans believing the streak was over, but the 76ers would go on to lose by 100-95 despite 25 points from Jahlil Okafor and 18 points Robert Covington. The Sixers really don’t deserve to be 0-15 on the season because they’ve played hard to earn double digit leads in their last two games but just can’t seem to get over the line.
In ATS trends, the 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six against the Eastern Conference, while the Celtics are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games following a loss of more than 10 points and 36-15-1 ATS in their last 52 games playing on zero days rest.
The Boston Celtics have finally escaped the dreaded four game stretch as they get back to backs against the Brooklyn Nets. The Celtics faired better than expected over the last four games, capturing three wins but an blown 18 point lead prevented them from entering this home and home on a winning streak.
The Brooklyn Nets look for a win that would help them get out of a 2-10 hole. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 95.7 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 103.3 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Brook Lopez is averaging 19.9 points and 8.3 rebounds while Thaddeus Young is averaging 15.8 points and eight rebounds. Jarrett Jack is dishing 7.5 assists and Joe Johnson is grabbing five rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting just 28.9 percent from downtown and have scored under 100 points in eight of their last 11 games. Meanwhile, the Nets are allowing 38.1 percent shooting from deep, proving that they’re a mess at both ends of the court. The Nets have lost 10 of their last 14 road games
The Boston Celtics look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Boston Celtics are averaging 102.5 points on 42.6 percent shooting and allowing 96.8 points on 43 percent shooting. Isaiah Thomas is averaging 20.8 points and 6.3 assists while Avery Bradley is averaging 13 points and 2.6 assists. Jared Sullinger is grabbing 9.2 rebounds and Marcus Smart is dishing 3.1 assists. The Boston Celtics continue to win with defense, as they’re allowing 32.9 percent shooting from deep and are forcing 18.8 turnovers per game. The Celtics are 6-1 this season when allowing less than 100 points. The Celtics have split their last 10 regular season home games.
The Nets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The Celtics are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Atlantic and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall

TEAMS: Boston Celtics (2-3) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (4-3).
WHEN: 7 p.m. Tuesday.
WHERE: BMO Harris Bradley Center.
The Boston Celtics travel to the Bradley Center to battle the Milwaukee Bucks tonight.
The Bucks look to stay hot tonight as they go for a fifth straight win after beating the Nets on Saturday. Greg Monroe scored 20 points, Jerryd Bayless scored 19 points and 10 assists while Khris Middleton added 14 points, nine rebounds and seven assists as the Bucks beat the Nets by 94-86. With the win, Milwaukee improves to 4-3 on the season, but that record is a little misleading as two of those wins were against the Nets and one was against the Sixers, both teams who are still winless this season.
Meanwhile, the Celtics were able to snap a three-game losing streak on Friday with a dominant 118-98 win over the Wizards. Jared Sullinger led all scorers with 21 points, Kelly Olynyk added 19 points and Isaiah Thomas and Evan Turner chipped in with 16 points each as the Celtics ambused the Wizards with a 40-25 first quarter explosion and never looked back. The key to the win was tempo as the Celtics hit the floor running and simply ran the Wizards off the court so this tactic could become a regular tactic for the Celtics who were averaging just 96 points during the losing streak.
In ATS trends, the Celtics are 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall, while the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games against teams below .400.
Head to head, the Celtics are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Milwaukee.

In their first road game of the season the Boston Celtics (1-2) will face the Indiana Pacers (1-3). The Pacers earned their first victory of the season with a win over the previously undefeated Detroit Pistons. The Celtics look to snap their two game losing streak against a Pacers team who has not won a single game at home. The Pacers might be down starting center Ian Mahinmi, who suffered a back injury in Tuesday’s game in Detroit.
The Celtics opened their season with a win against Philadelphia, but have since dropped back-to-back games to the Spurs and Raptors.
The Pacers were able to snap a three-game skid and earn their first win of the season by taking down the Pistons by 94-82 last night. Rodney Stuckey got it going for the Pacers and led the way with 23 points off the bench, Paul George added 16 points while Monta Ellis had 15 as the Pacers capitalized on a 35-17 second quarter and never looked back. It wasn’t all pretty as they went ice cold in a 9-point fourth quarter, but the Pistons could never narrow the margin to less than six points down the stretch.
Meanwhile, the Celtics will be looking to avoid a third straight loss after falling to the Spurs in a 95-87 defeat on Sunday. Avery Bradley had his best game of the young season, leading the team with 18 points on seven of 18 shooting while Marcus Smart added 17 points on seven of 12 shooting, but the Celtics needed more from their leading scorer in Isaiah Thomas who added 15 points and five assists off the bench but shot just four of 18 for the game. As a team, the Celtics shot just 35.7 percent from the field, their lowest so far this season.
In ATS trends, the Pacers are 0-6 ATS in their last six games playing on zero days rest and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games against the Eastern Conference, while the Celtics are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.
April 1, 2015: The Pacers entered Boston on April 1 with the mentality that they were playing a must-win game. At the time, the Celtics and Pacers were neck-and-neck in the hunt for one of the final two spots in the 2014-15 Postseason. Unfortunately for Indiana, the Celtics came out on top with a 100-87 win at the TD Garden.
The Celtics hurt the Pacers in the paint, with Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller each hanging up 19 on Indiana. Former Pacers trade acquisition Evan Turned finished the night with a triple-double for Boston.
Although the loss may have felt like the end of days for the Pacers and their fans, Indiana rattled off a six-game winning streak following the loss to Boston, which propelled it right back into playoff discussions all the way up until the final game of the season.
George Hill had 21 points, six boards and six assists in the loss.
The Grizzlies have gotten the better of the Celtics in every game after the shortened 2011-2012 season. The combination of tough defense and the big men duo Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph has overpowered Boston in those five games, and with Jared Sullinger out for the season, it’s hard to see how they will stop Memphis this time.

The Celtics are home after a bizzaro three-game road trip – losing the game in which they were favored and winning the two games in which they were not. They were without shooting guard Avery Bradley for that trip, but he should be able to return for this game. And that might be a much needed relief after Isaiah Thomas got a bruised back and elbow in Monday night’s game against the Miami Heat. Thomas is a game-time-decision for the Memphis game.
The Memphis Grizzlies have won three of their last four and are coming off a solid 101-91 win over the Bulls thanks to another big night from their talented big man. Marc Gasol made the most of open looks to lead the team with 23 points on 10 of 16 shooting, Jeff Green added 19 points while Zach Randolph had 16 as the Grizzlies improved to 45-18 on the season. To be fair, the Grizzlies did get the Bulls at an opportune time because they were playing their fourth game in five nights and are missing Derrick Rose, but it was still a solid win from a consistent team. With the win, Memphis keeps a two-game cushion from the third-placed Houston who have been in great form themselves.
Head to head, the Grizzlies are 19-8-1 ATS in the last 28 meetings overall and 13-1 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Boston.
Boston has the tools to make this game interesting by going small. Most of their roster is able to shoot the three-ball and stretch the defense, and they have had some success with this against bigger teams this season. It remains to be seen, whether they can rattle the Grizzlies, who are usually elite on defense, no matter what the opponent brings.
