On Sunday, January 24th, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics meet for the first time in the 2020-21 campaign.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Celtics sweeping the regular-season series. The Celtics hold the all-time record having won 133 of 213 matches played.
Although the Big 3 in Brooklyn are getting all the headlines the Cavaliers used the James Harden trade to bolster their depth by acquiring Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince.

Cleveland feels they are a playoff team and they made that point abundantly clear with consecutive victories over the Nets on Wednesday and Friday.
Prior to the roster upgrades, it felt like the Cavaliers’ hot start might adjust to the mean. Instead, they’re looking more confident and have increased their odds of returning to the postseason.
The Cavaliers also sent the league notice of how porous the Nets defense is, beating them 147-135 in overtime and 125-113 in the follow-up game. Did I mention the Cavaliers had the 30th ranked offense prior to these two games?
Collin Sexton followed up his 42 point night Wednesday with 25 points and nine assists. Andre Drummond (19 points, 16 rebounds) and Larry Nance Jr. (15 points, 10 rebounds) each produced double-double efforts.
Darius Garland added 11 points while new Cavaliers Allen (19) and Prince (14) delivered against their former team.
Kevin Love (calf) is expected to remain out until February while Matthew Dellavedova (concussion) is out indefinitely.
It’s been a rough stretch for the Celtics as they dealt with numerous injuries and players addressing the health and safety protocols.
In particular, the absence of Jayson Tatum has affected the club’s ability to function effectively as they dropped three games in a row including two to the 76ers.
In the most recent loss, Jaylen Brown tried to will his team to the win creating close to 40 percent of the Celtics offense via 42 points plus added nine rebounds.
Marcus Smart (20) and Kemba Walker (19) were the only other double-figure contributors
Tacko Fall (ankle) missed the last three games while Carsen Edwards (illness) missed the last four with both listed as questionable for Sunday.
Aaron Nesmith (back) is doubtful versus the Cavs. Payton Pritchard (Grade 1, MCL sprain), Jayson Tatum (health and safety protocols), and Romeo Langford (wrist) are all projected to be out until February.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
A streak will get broken today as the Celtics have lost three games in a row while the Cavaliers have won three in a row.
Although the injury report suggests Tatum is out, there are conflicting reports he could possibly return to play on Sunday.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Cavaliers +6.5
The most intriguing part of this game is whether the two games versus the Nets were simply a good matchup for the Cavaliers or if this is a closer version of what to expect.
I’m leaning to Boston winning but for the Cavaliers to keep it close. One caveat- if Tatum plays I like the Celtics to cover.
