The Boston Celtics will try and snap a two-game home losing streak as they host the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night in a nba betting game that can be seen on TNT. The Celtics did not play well last time out on Thursday as they lost 96-83 at home to the Chicago Bulls. “We got our butt kicked tonight, in every fashion,” head coach Doc Rivers said. “I’d rather give the credit to the Bulls.” Boston has had three days to think about that loss so they should be very focused on Monday. It also helps Boston that Dallas had to play yesterday in Toronto.
