Wednesday, January 23 finds the Cleveland Cavaliers meeting up with the Boston Celtics as they play each other for the second time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Monday, the Cavaliers lost to the Chicago Bulls while the Celtics also played on Martin Luther King Jr. day in a win over the Miami Heat.
Last season, the Cavaliers took two of three games over Boston, but his season the Celtics took the initial meeting in Boston. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Cavaliers in 126 of their 206 matches.
The Cavaliers have lost 16 of their last 17 games. The squad which made the Finals in each of their past four seasons are clearly headed for the lottery and trying to navigate keeping their players moral high given all the losing.
One of the few bright spots is Collin Sexton who scored in double-digits for the 12 consecutive games and led his team in scoring with 18 points.
Tristan Thompson (foot soreness) missed the last three games and is out versus the Celtics. Larry Nance Jr. (sprained MCL in his right knee), David Nwaba (left ankle sprain) and Kevin Love (surgery on his left big toe) are all out returning either early or mid-February.
After publicly calling out his team and specifically the young guys Kyrie Irving has put actions behind his words leading his squad to victories.
Notably, he’s been more active defensively which was evidenced by his career high eight steals on Monday. He’s also dishing dimes at a crazy clip notching double-digit dimes in three of his past four games.
In the win in Miami, Irving came just two steals shy of the rare points-assists-steals triple-double (26 points, 10 assists and eight steals).
His performances have pulled the Celtics back in games they were trailing and helped to build their current four-game winning streak. This game may or not hold extra appeal for Irving who began his career in Cleveland.
Al Horford has also been on fire of late and when he’s hitting his shots the Celtics tend to cruise to victory.
