Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers, first game of the final of the Eastern Conference, the Cavs arrive at the home of the Celtics with some problems but as more time off. The Celtics are a dangerous team at home, they do not have Kyrie Irving, but until now they have not needed it, although they suffered a bit against the 76ers, the team looks more solid than the Cavs themselves.
Boston Celtics: At home we have the advantage with our people.
The Celtics this regular season, including the playoffs and semifinals managed to harvest 34 win and 14 losses at home, the effectiveness so far is set at 70.8%, all without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Haywards, both were important during the start the season, but due to surgeries for their injuries they will lose the rest of the season.
The only bad news this week for the Celtics is that Jayson Tatum will not be available for the first game at home against the Cavaliers, Tatum is recovering from a left hand injury suffered against the 76ers.
The Celtics at home are scoring an average of 106.1 points against the visitors, 45.7% field goal, 76.6% free throw, 37.3% 3pointers, 9.19 rebounds and 23.96 assists. The assists have been important and reflect the rotation of the ball at home. The defense has had some problems, but they are only allowing 100.8 points to the visitors and up to 5.25 blocks per game.
Cleveland Cavaliers: We do not have the best team but we can win.
It is not very likely that the Cavaliers win the first game at home of the Celtics, the expectations are few because Lebron does not have the same players from last season, Kyrie Irving is not and he was a key player during the 2016- 2017
The Cavs won the conference against the Boston Celtics last season, but today the story is different, although it is possible that LeBron James offers his best performance against the Celtics.
Last season the series finished 4-1 in favor of the Cavs, I would like to think that the Cavs can win this conference again, but we will have to see the first game of the series and then predict through the performance of that first game.
My Free Pick & Prediction for Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers on 13/5/2018 is: Take the Boston Celtics +1.5 (spread)
