Why the Warriors can cover

Stephen Curry thrives in any area on the floor. Curry has limitless shooting range and is always flying around the court to create space from defenders. The four-time NBA Champion is eighth in the NBA in scoring (27.5) and shoots 41% from downtown. On Thursday against the Knicks, Curry finished with 31 points and 11 boards. 

Forward Jonathan Kuminga is an athletic, downhill scoring threat. Kuminga can easily soar above the rack and finish with either hand. The 21-year-old averages 15.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. In his previous outing, Kuminga dropped 24 points and six rebounds. See who to back at SportsLine

Why the Celtics can cover

Guard Jaylen Brown gives the Celtics an athletic and aggressive scorer. Brown can get into the lane with ease but also has a smooth mid-range jumper to keep defenders honest. Brown averages 22.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game. In his last game, Brown racked up 25 points, seven rebounds, and five assists.

Guard Jrue Holiday is a model of consistency in the backcourt. Holiday plays elite defense and has good court vision to get his teammates involved. The UCLA product logs 13.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game. Holiday's effectiveness on both ends of the floor is a big reason why the Celtics are 10-0 in their last 10 games. See who to back at SportsLine
