The NBA season kicks off on Tuesday evening with two teams who are expecting to be near the top of the Eastern Conference all season.
The Boston Celtics make the trip to Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers. The Cavaliers have won eight of the last ten games played between the two teams.
Last year the Boston Celtics once again fell short of reaching their goal, making the NBA Finals so they made some big changes in the off season.
They made a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers to get Kryie Irving while sending away Isiah Thomas. They also signed Gordon Hayward from the Utah Jazz in free agency.
They hope that those additions will be the difference in this team taking that next step forward. This teams strength is the back court, and they are going to have to be good to come out on top in this game.
This of course will be Kyrie’s first game back in Cleveland from the trade, so it will be interesting to see how he responds to probably at lot of heckling from the Cavaliers crowd.
The weakness of this team is the front court, and they will be really short in this game. Marcus Morris is expected to miss this game because of some knee soreness.
Aron Baynes also has some new trouble but he is expected to play this game. They are really going to need Baynes to play in this game, and probably play well.
They are going to need to find someone to step up and try to slow down the big men of the Cavaliers.
On the other side of this match up is the Cleveland Cavaliers who are going to be shorthanded early in the season, but they hope they will be able to carry through, and still win this game.
The one big question mark heading into this game is LeBron James. He is officially questionable with an ankle injury which is very concerning.
My guess is that he will play if at all possible because I know he doesn’t want to miss this game, but if he does have to miss this game the Cavaliers are going to be in trouble.
To win this game the Cavaliers need to try and make this a very high scoring game The higher the scoring the game the better the chance that the Cavaliers will be winning this game.
