The Boston Celtics have been in good shape lately with just four losses in their last 16 games. However, they lost their last game against the Bucks by just 1 point.

Kyrie Irving led from the front with 22 points and dished out five assists. With him, Al Horford grabbed 17 rebounds and contributed 21 points on the night.

It was an altogether great effort from the Celtics' side, but they were unable to stop the Greek Freek in the final quarter where he scored 12 points.

Predicted lineup: Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris Sr., Al Horford, Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart.

The Bulls have just won 15 games and have been inconsistent throughout this season. However, they beat the Orlando Magic yesterday after the All-Star break.

Lauri Markkanen led from the front, scoring 25 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Zach Lavine and Robin Lopez supported him well by chipping in with 22 and 18 points respectively.

The win meant a lot for the Bulls' team as they have now won 9 games on the road. Tonight they will be at home looking to upset the Celtics.

Predicted lineup: Lauri Markkanen, Otto Porter Jr., Robin Lopez, Zach Lavine and Kris Dunn.

How things might unfold

It was a welcome victory for the Bulls' squad in the last game. However, tonight the test will be against the high-quality Boston Celtics side.

The Celtics will be very disappointed with the way they lost their last game and will be itching to bounce back tonight.
