Where the game will be won or lost

These teams squared off earlier this season in October with the Celtics winning 101-95.

Similar to that matchup, defense will be the deciding factor this time around.

George leads the NBA with 2.32 steals per game, and he'll have to lock up Jayson Tatum who lead the team with 24 points in October's matchup.

For Boston, if they can slow down the game and force turnovers like they did in New York with Brown, Morris, and Irving they should hold off OKC.
