Cleveland is one of the more improving clubs in the Eastern conference. You have to respect the effort and purpose they give each game as they have that never say die attitude. They attack the glass and loose balls very well. Rookie first round pick Kyrie Irving has played very well for the Cavaliers with 51.6% shooting from the floor and 40.7% coming from the three point line. Those are extremely impressive numbers for the rookie out of Duke. Down low in the paint you have Antawn Jamison and Anderson Varejao who are effort guys who will battle against Kevin Garnett and company for position and rebounds. Guard Alonzo Gee had performed well with a 49.1% shooting percentage and pulling nearly four rebounds a game in 25 minutes of play per game.
Boston has some injury concerns for this game as point guard Rajon Rondo has been listed as out for this game with a wrist injury. This will be the seventh straight game Rondo has missed for the Celtics. The team has really struggled offensively scoring 100 points just once in that seven game stretch against a bad Washington team. Boston hosted Cleveland on Sunday and allowed the Cavs to overcome an eight point deficit in the fourth quarter to score a victory as Kyrie Irving sank the close in shot in the final seconds of the game. What is worrisome for Boston tonight is the fact the Celtics wasted a 52.2% shooting performance in the loss to Cleveland and the fact Boston allowed the Cavaliers 54 points in the paint. This Boston team has been stripped of a lot of quality off their bench. Beyond the big three in Boston are players that are not a level that can support the Celtics for a deep run in the playoffs. I don’t put much stock into revenge angles in professional sports because it does not apply like in the college game. Take Cleveland plus the four points and make this bet at one of our top rated outlets from our reviews of online sportsbooks.
