Two of the top teams in the East go to battle on Saturday as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics play inside Quicken Loans Arena.
Both teams will be playing the 2nd leg of their back to back.
Cleveland will be at home on Friday against the Wizards, while the Celtics will be in Boston against the Knicks.
Currently, the Celtics sit in the 3rd spot and they show no signs of slowing down.
Boston will go for their 13th straight home win on Friday against the Knicks and they’ll look to make a push toward the top two spots in the conference.
Boston sits in 3rd place, 6.5 off the pace of the Cavaliers and 4.5 behind Toronto for 2nd place. They’re right there in the thick of things and did defeat Cleveland last time these two faced off in Cleveland.
Boston trailed for a majority of the game, but found themselves down by just 2 with seconds to go. Isaiah Thomas hit a corner three over Iman Shumpert to seal a road win.
Boston has rattled off 4 straight wins overall.
The Cavaliers have been at the center of attention and things continue to be unsteady.
Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving was first tabbed to being not happy in Cleveland and wanting to leave at season’s end. Then, it came out that the Cavaliers players were upset with the team letting Kendrick Perkins go last year.
They loved his presence and locker room presence, which has opened a lot within the team.
Still, through it all, Cleveland has held onto first place in the East and continue to try and hold off the Raptors. They’ll get a back to back home and home here, with the Wizards and then here against the Celtics.
Cleveland will rest Kevin Love on Friday, for him to be well rested for this one.
