Advice and prediction

With both teams dinged up and missing key players, this game would be closer than one might have expected at the start of the season, but with the momentum behind them of their win against the Denver Nuggets the night before, Boston ought to have it in them to win again by enough to cover the spread.

Prediction: Boston 111, Atlanta 106
