Kelly Olynyk was the main man for Boston, grabbing 21 points but a total of six players made it to double figures for the Celtics. The Heat are struggling badly at home and the 103-105 loss to Washington on Friday night was their 8th defeat in 9 home games. Dwyane Wade grabbed 28 points but even he made some big errors as Miami slumped again.
Vitor Faverani is a major doubt for the Celtics while Marcus Smart is being monitored and the Heat are monitoring Danny Granger while Chris Bosh is giving Miami greater concerns.
This is likely to be a close game but with a bit more current form, taking the Celtics at a +2 handicap, with odds of 1.90, should kick-start your Sunday basketball betting fun. Bet Now!
Los Angeles Lakers @ Sacramento Kings
The Lakers have an 8-18 record, with a 5-8 record away from home and the Kings have an 11-15 record, with a 6-9 record in Sacramento. The Lakers have lost their last two matches, going 2-3 in their last five games while the Kings have lost their last five games.
The Kings suffered a narrow 107-108 loss against the Bucks on Thursday.

The Lakers also had a narrow loss in their last game, losing out 103-104 to the Thunder on Friday.
The Lakers are keeping a close eye on Wesley Johnson and Jordan Hill while the Kings could be without Omri Casspi while they are monitoring Rudy Gay, Reggie Evans and DeMarcus Cousins.
Taking the Lakers with a +7 handicap, at odds of 1.90, may be just the ticket for successful basketball betting on Sunday. Bet Now!
