The top two teams in the Eastern Conference will square off Wednesday night when the Boston Celtics travel north of the border to take on the Toronto Raptors in the first game of an ESPN doubleheader.

But the Bucks turned things around in the second quarter, going on a 16-4 run to lead 53-45 before taking a 58-56 lead into the half following Tatum's buzzer-beating 3-pointer to end the second. The Celtics - who beat the Raptors last week - have won two of their first three meetings, and can clinch the tiebreaker with a win in this one. Jabari Parker dropped a team-high 35 points in their last game.

At home, Toronto is 19-19 ATS with 19 overs and 19 unders.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the top fantasy basketball player for the Bucks with a season average of 51.9 fantasy points per game.

Big men: On a night where Toronto's shooters were off the mark, Jonas Valanciunas and Serge Ibaka combined for 36 points and 22 rebounds to lead the Raptors in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers.

A chilly Easter, Snow on the way tonight
Motorists are advised to expect slippery road conditions and reduced visibility, including during the Monday morning commute. Boston is only expected to get 1 to 2 inches total, with that snow most likely melting as the day warns up in the afternoon.

Toronto ranks sixth in points in the paint per game (48.6) while Boston ranks 28th (39.4). The Raptors have not lost three consecutive games this season.

The Celtics are 19 in the league in scoring offense with 104.2 points per game. Toronto is the much healthier team at this point in time as their rotation is pretty much at full strength at this point in time. For the Celtics, Gordon Hayward (left ankle rehab), Kyrie Irving (left knee surgery), Marcus Smart (right thumb surgery) and Daniel Theis (left knee surgery) will be out.

Jaylen Brown had 24 and Jayson Tatum had 20 for the Celtics who played without Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin, both added to the injured list of Boston players.

The under is 5-1 in the Celtics' last 6 road games, 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning straight up record and 5-2 in the second game of their last seven back to backs. Their record against the spread is 5-1, with an average pre-game line of 1.1 and an ATS average result of 7.6. The teams have gone under the total in four of their last five meetings: look for that trend to continue here with both teams being a big worn out in addition to Boston being shorthanded.
