Cavaliers Head to Boston for Eastern Conference Showdown

Cleveland Cavaliers

Cavs Looking for Breathing Room

The Cleveland Cavaliers are on top of the Eastern Conference standings, but the Boston Celtics have closed the gap. They’re won 12 of their last 16 games and are now just four games back. They’ll have another chance to cut into that lead when they host Cleveland Wednesday night.

Oddsmakers have the Celtics and the Cavaliers as a PK. The total is at 223 after opening at 221.5.

For the Cavs, this is the first of three back-to-back road games. They’ve hosted the Celtics twice already this season, winning both games, while shredding their defense. They’ve averaged 126 points per game in those two contests.

The Celtics head west for a five-game trip after Wednesday, so they’ll aim to start their road trip with a win over the team they’re chasing in the East. Isaiah Thomas continues to dominate, as he ranks second in the NBA in scoring, but the team’s offense has faded of late. They’ve averaged just 100.5 points per game over their last four.
