The Boston Celtics welcome the Oklahoma City Thunder to the TDGarden tonight. The only visit from the Western Conference contenders will be sure to be an interesting game given the skeleton crew that the Celtics are suddenly playing with.
Kevin Durant is playing like no other person on the planet right now. He has scored 30+ in the last nine games. In those games he has also scored in the 40's twice and 56 points last Friday night.
So can the Celtics slow him down tonight? With a healthy dose of Jeff Green? Possibly However, the fact that Vander Blue, Brandon Bass, Jeff Green, and a mishmash of others will be sent to stop the dynamic scorer with length, shooting touch, and a great first step it could be another banner night for the MVP front-runner.
Prediction: Durant scores 35 points in a big Thunder victory similar to what happened earlier this year in the Celtics 96-119 loss in Oklahoma.
