ZACH SCHWARTZ: It's Zack Schwartz from Yahoo Sports. Here are my picks for today's slate of NBA match-ups. First and foremost, we're gonna look at the Celtics-Raptors game.

One of the big issues coming into this game is Kyle Lowry's health. Now for the Raptors, Kyle Lowry has been such a huge piece of this success, and it's been so impressive watching them all playoffs long play without the NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard. I do think they are gonna start coming up short as this Celtics team is really well put together and really, really complete.

The line for the game-- a little bit scary for me, but I think the Celtics are 2 1/2 point underdogs. That's why I'm going to go ahead and take the Celtics Moneyline. The Celtics Moneyline is +115. A lot better value there than taking the-- I think it's -110 if you take the points. Don't love that. And I just think that Jayson Tatum is really evolving in front of our eyes and turning into one of the best players in the league.
