Boston Celtics at Utah Jazz

Watch: 10 p.m. ET, TNT

Odds: Jazz -6 || O/U 220.5

Pick: The NBA-leading Jazz have won four straight and have only lost twice at home this season.

Shoutout: On Monday, we asked subscribers to predict the score of Rangers-Islanders and the first goal-scorer. The Islanders came out on top, 2-0. Everyone went the way of Sports Section and had the Rangers winning. Everyone but Mark Jeske, that is. Mark didn’t have the first goal-scorer, Casey Cizikas, but he picked the Islanders 4-2. Nice job, Mark.
