An old team is playing a young team in this matchup. Early line-opening says Boston -1.

Those "old" Spurs have the 4th best overall record (and even better road record) despite the constant injuries throughout this season (btw, Gino is going tonight)...I will gladly take a chance laying the small chalk with these old road warriors against a Celtics team w a gimpy Rondo and no Bass or Bradley

I just read that Ginobili has re-joined the team on this road trip and that he is expected/ likely to play.No confirmation yet that he will play for sure. Spurs will be cautious with him in case he starts; I assume he won't nearly play full minutes.
I don't like the line. By just looking at the past results and all their accompishments and pointing out that the Spurs will win this (even with Manu) is easy but keep in mind that with all the injuries its a different Spurs team we are talking here.

At the end of the day basketball is a game played by human and the difference between a younger and older team can't be denied here. I lean Boston plus the points but rather stay away from this and look at the other games.

I get the player updates from rotoworld.com; just use google: rotoworld nba depth charts.

Boston is without Avery Bradley he re-sprained his ankle. He was highly doubtful for tonight; Brad Stevens ruled him out (from my Twitter feed)

@citysnow: I don't have any confirmation or anything from twitter that Manu is playing for SURE. I know that he intended February 18 to play again. Have you spoked to Gregg Popovich about his status???
