*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Sunday, March 5th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Monday, March 6th.
After possessing the league’s best record for the majority of the season the Celtics have slipped to second both in the Eastern Conference as well as overall (tied with the Nuggets).
With Robert Williams III suffering a hamstring injury the Celts find themselves in a similar situation as they were to start the season but have the depth to address their big man’s injury while he recoups.
On the positive side, Boston claims the fourth-best point production averaging 117.5 points per game. In terms of efficiency, they shoot 47.6% from the field and 37.8% from the perimeter ranking 13th and sixth respectively.
Presently, opponents average 112.1 points per game which rank eighth. Celtics opponents are limited to 46.7% from the field and 35.4% from the perimeter which ranks eighth and 11th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Danilo Gallinari, SF (OUT indefinitely — ACL)
- Malcolm Brogdon PG (questionable— ankle)
- Robert Williams III C (OUT —hamstring)
With 16 games remaining the Cavaliers sit in fourth and while they’d like to move up the ladder their more pressing goal will be holding off the charging Knicks who’ve won eight in-a-row and are only 1.5 games back of the Cavs.
Cleveland trails the season series versus New York 1-2 and have one more contest on March 31st that will determine who wins the series. Since the Cavs play in the Central Division they can’t rely on winning the division because the Bucks will hold that advantage.
Offensively, Cleveland scores 112.0 points per game ranking 25th while shooting 48.9% from the field and 36.4% on the perimeter ranking sixth and 11th respectively.
Overall, Cleveland tops the league for opponent scoring limiting foes to an average of 106.4 points per game. Cavs opponents shoot 46.6% from the field and 37.1% from deep ranking sixth and 23rd.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
It goes without saying, the Cavs will once again face a team missing part of its core – even with the copious injuries this season, no team has benefited more by short handed opponent starting rotations.
There is no doubt the Celtics are a deep, talented roster who are battle tested and along with the Bucks are projected as the favorites to come out of the East.
That said, their recent play warrants at least a bit of concern… Boston is 1-3 through their last four matches with two of those defeats at the hands of the Knicks. Throughout the year they’ve won those chippy close games in clutch time but recently they’re 50-50 in those matches.
It could just be mental fatigue (and some injuries) but look Boston to be uber focused to tie up this series via a W in this match.
