Boston opened the year with a close loss to the Knicks, but Ime Udoka's team followed that up with a 115-83 loss to the Raptors on Friday.

The Celtics shot just 39% from the floor in that game. While Jayson Tatum had an efficient showing, Marcus Smart was 0-for-6, and Jaylen Brown shot 23.1%. Add in an explosive showing from Raptors rookie Scottie Barnes and the result was a big loss for the Celtics, who were outscored 64-36 in the second half.

As for the Rockets, Houston is coming off of a 124-91 win over the Thunder.

Houston isn't expected to be a very good team this year, but it's still expected to be better than a rebuilding Thunder team.

Christian Wood had 29 points on 66.7% shooting in the win, while Kevin Porter scored 20 points. Eric Gordon added 22 off the bench, while rookies Jalen Green and Alperen Şengün both got decent playing time.

But as good as Houston looked in that game, the Celtics have the talent edge here. Consider Boston to be the favorites to win Sunday's game.
