Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics
Tuesday, 9:05 pm Eastern - ABC

The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics will play Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. It will be the first of three straight games in Boston since the finals are a 2-3-2 format.  The teams split their first two games in Los Angeles with the Lakers winning easily in Game 1 while the Celtics bounced back behind Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo on Game 2.  Now the series lead will be on the line on Tuesday night in a game that can be seen on ABC.

Boston is a 2.5 point favorite with a total of 192.5 at BG Global.

Allen and Rondo carried the Celtics on Sunday in their 103-94 win.  The Lakers were plagued by foul trouble and they simply couldn't stop Allen or Rondo.  The Celtics got an NBA Finals record eight three-pointers from Allen in the Game 2 victory and they needed them.  Kevin Garnett was invisible again and Paul Pierce is not the player he used to be. The Celtics won thanks to Allen's shooting and Rondo's all around game and because Kobe Bryant and many of the other Lakers were in foul trouble all night. Now the series moves to Boston where the Celtics have been very good during the playoffs after struggling during the regular season.

Here are the NBA betting stats for Tuesday's game. The Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 NBA Championship games. The Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog. The Lakers are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Boston. The underdog is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between the two teams and the road team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Celtics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games. The Celtics are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 NBA Championship games. The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Celtics are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 playoff games as a favorite.

The Over is 8-2-2 in the Lakers last 12 overall. The Over is 6-2-1 in the Lakers last 9 road games. The Over is 3-0-1 in the Celtics last 4 NBA Championship games. The Under is 5-2 in the Celtics last 7 Tuesday games.
