The Celtics are coming off a tough loss on Sunday to the Golden State Warriors. Isaiah Thomas and the Celtics built up a 26-point lead, but were outscored 31-15 in the fourth quarter and lost 106-101.

A win against the Warriors would have made it four straight for the Celtics, but instead they fell to 23-34 on the year under Brad Stevens.

Guard Isaiah Thomas is playing extremely well since coming to Boston right before the trade deadline. Thomas is averaging 21.8 points in the five games with Boston to go along with 5.8 assists. He also became the first Celtics player since Kevin McHale to score at least 19 points off the bench in four straight games.

The young Celtics’ roster is filled with talent, but they’re still trying to figure out how to play together said Coach Stevens. Point guard Marcus Smart and shooting guard Avery Bradley can both become solid starters in this league if they learn how to play their roles on a team.

Small forward Evan Turner is having one of his best year in the league. Turner is averaging 8.7 points per game, 5.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists and is coming off a win last week where he recorded his first career triple double.


The Cavaliers will hope to have Kyrie Irving back in the lineup for tonight’s contest, but he is still listed as day-to-day. Irving is still recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered in the win last week over Golden State.

Razor Ray's Picks

The Duke alum is averaging 21.7 points per game to go along with 5.2 assists and 3.3 rebounds.

LeBron James and the Cavaliers are looking to avoid three straight losses for the first time since their six-game losing streak in January. Last game they were defeated in overtime by the Houston Rockets where James missed two free throws to put his team ahead with just seconds remaining.

Forward Tristan Thompson is arguably having the best year of his career and is coming off a 19 rebound performance on Sunday. Thompson has turned out to be one of the best bench players in the league this season and will only continue to get better.

Cleveland has currently won their last 11 games at home, outscoring their opponents by an average of 14.8 points per game, making this their longest streak since the 2009 season where they rattled off 16 straight.

If the Cavaliers want to get back on track and avoid a three-game losing streak they can not take this Celtics team lightly, especially with the way Coach Stevens’ team has been playing.

NBA Handicapping Tips:

  • Cavaliers are 6-0 ATS in the last six games after allowing 100 or more points in the previous game.
  • Home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
  • Celtics are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Cleveland.
  • Cavaliers are 10-1 ATS in the last 11 home games.

NBA Gambling Prediction

The Cavaliers can’t let the Celtics be in this ball game for too long. A young team like the Celtics has the ability to win games, especially if the Cavaliers let them believe they can. However, I see the Cavaliers coming out with intensity after suffering a tough loss on Sunday. Expect big games from Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love as they both have extreme mismatches on offense.

Free 4* NBA Betting Pick: CLE -11.5

Look for a fast start from LeBron and then for Kyrie and Love to close it out.
